Before embarking on a career as a Pilates instructor, ask yourself two important questions: what type of training you want to do and, most importantly, with which trainer.
Pilates training is about much more than mastering a sequence of exercises - it's about the foundation of your philosophy of practice, the establishment of your teaching approach, and the profound way you understand the discipline. These will be the building blocks of our teaching career.
It is therefore extremely important to identify yourself with the training organisation and, above all, with those who will be in charge of your training.
Jenny Backlund-Jenkins, Training Director of Future Form Pilates Education, is a dedicated, passionate and respected protagonist of the Pilates community in France.
Jenny is a highly experienced Pilates teacher, and has worked all her career in the field of body movement - having pursued an international career as a professional dancer for 20 years, before retiring in 2010 to devote herself to the Pilates method.
Jenny has completed two Pilates teacher training courses: first with Balanced Body, a world-renowned training organization and contemporary Pilates equipment manufacturer, and then with Mejo Wiggins, an internationally renowned master teacher and heir to the knowledge of Romana Kryzanowska, the eponymous founder of the Romana school, and the master teacher for passing on the teachings of Joseph Pilates around the world in the 20th century. Jenny is thus a third generation disciple of "Joe's" teaching, and the training programme of Future Form Pilates Education is based on mastering the original system of the founder of the discipline.
Your development as a Pilates instructor will take place under Jenny's tutelage, and you will have access to her methodology, know-how and advice throughout the training.
