The Mat-Comprehensive package offers the Core Mat I, Core Mat II, and Comprehensive programs at a significant discount. The Core Mat I (Beginner Mat level) program is the foundation of the Power Pilates method. Each subsequent program builds upon the information learned during this course. During this weekend you will learn to teach the 18 beginner level mat exercises and be introduced to Power Pilates teaching tools, philosophy, and teaching formula. Every student new to Power Pilates must start with Core Mat I.
During the Core Mat II (Intermediate Mat level) weekend, you will learn 12 intermediate level exercises, including where to add them within the sequence of the beginner level mat class, and continue to work on your teaching skills. Our students say that "everything starts to click" during the Core Mat II weekend. Completing the Core Mat II weekend expands the range of clients you can work with and strengthens your teaching ability. Core Mat I & II are required to progress to the Comprehensive program.
The Comprehensive training is our most extensive program and covers beginner, intermediate and advanced level exercises utilizing the Pilates apparatus - Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Barrels, Ped-o-Pull and Magic Circle - as well as understanding how to work with Special Case clients (i.e. obesity, pregnancy, back problem, neck, knee, shoulder, etc.). You will continue to utilize and build the teaching tools learned during the Core Mat I & Core Mat II weekends. You will sharpen your eye for subtle exercise modifications and master the ability to work with people of all ages and fitness levels at the same time.
A lifelong dancer, Meaghan was first introduced to Pilates at a young age as a complement to her dance training. During college she began practicing Pilates more intensely, and found that many of her existing injuries and imbalances improved greatly. The more she learned about the method the more she was convinced of its merits, and she knew then that she wanted Pilates to be part of her career. After receiving a BFA in Dance from The Ohio State University, she moved to New York in 2008. In addition to teaching dance classes, Meaghan completed her comprehensive certification at Power Pilates, where she has been teaching since. Meaghan loves to work with a wide range of clients, and loves seeing how the Pilates method helps every person in a unique way, giving them each what they need. In 2020, Meaghan became a Teacher Trainer with Power Pilates, and is excited to share the art of teaching with people all over the world.
