Welcome to the MIDWEST PILATES INSTITUTE!
It is expected that the student will complete the PROGRAM OF STUDY in 12 months. At the completion of this program and passing the final examination the student will receive a diploma from the Midwest Pilates Institute. The education students receive through MPI will prepare them to successfully complete the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) International Pilates Certification Exam.
We teach the “abc’s” of Pilates. The mission at MPI is to provide a top-notch education in Pilates by staying true to the original teachings of Joseph H. Pilates and his wife Clara. Once students have completed our program they will have the confidence and expertise to teach others the authentic and complete system of the Pilates Method. MPI is committed to the success of each and every individual student.
“One can learn every Pilates exercise on every piece of equipment and still not know Pilates.”
– Eve Gentry in 1991
The Midwest Pilates Institute offers a comprehensive Pilates teacher training program. In 2010 MPI voluntarily sought out the Wisconsin Education Approval Board committee to consider their teacher training program for post-secondary education state approval. In 2011, after a lengthy and tedious approval process, The Midwest Pilates Institute became the first state- approved Pilates school in Wisconsin and one of only a few in the nation.
Our “hands-on” approach to teaching the Pilates Method allows the student to develop and grow at his or her own pace with on-going support and feedback. We teach authentic Pilates as taught to Eve Gentry by Joseph Pilates. We operate in a fully equipped, state-of-the-art studio. We ensure an educationally rich and nurturing environment in which to learn.
