100 self-practice hours

100 observation hours

200 teaching hours

A Practical Assessment of Movement & Teaching Skills and a Written Exam administered by Innerstellar’s Teaching Staff.

Upon successful completion, you will receive an Assessment-based Certificate and an opportunity to take the Pilates Method Alliance Certification Exam to become a PMA-Certified Pilates Teacher.


Can be completed by all Graduates for $97 per month for unlimited self-practice and observation hours at Innerstellar OR can be completed at another approved studio. Graduates can also apply to be a Group Class Assistant to help develop their confidence as teachers. Assistants will support experienced Instructors with their group classes; hours doing so go towards total Observation Hours. Assistants benefit by becoming integrated into the studio’s community as they get valuable practice with their communication skills and hands-on assists. Pricing subject to change.


Graduates can complete these hours at another approved studio OR can apply for a role as Apprentice Teacher at Innerstellar to help complete their required teaching hours. These additional hours are an important part of transitioning from a student teacher to an experienced professional. If hired at Innerstellar, you will be paid for these hours.


Can be scheduled with the Teaching Team after all of the above requirements have been fulfilled at the rate of $250. If the graduate fails to pass the test, they may reschedule after a 4-week waiting period and can re-take the test for an additional $250. Pricing subject to change.
