Gateway is an opportunity for Health Practitioners and Fitness Instructors to add Pilates movement experiences to their current practice, and those looking to further their personal knowledge and experience of Pilates.
Pilates is about efficient exercise, in a way that strengthens, rehabilitates, and prevents injuries. The Gateway Pilates Course is an introduction to the Pilates Method and the Polestar approach.
You will gain a deeper understanding of the Pilates Method, learn selected Pilates Mat and Equipment exercises, and walk away with the practical skills to apply correct form and sequencing.
This three-hour online training is a requirement for all who attend any of the Gateway Pilates training courses. The online course fortifies the fundamental principles and history of Pilates, and consists of three lectures each followed by a brief written exam online:
Part 1: History of Pilates and Evolution
Part 2: Polestar Movement Concepts
Part 3: Professional Ethics (Scope of Practice)

“As Physiotherapists, the Gateway Course run by Polestar Pilates was extremely beneficial! The instructors were fantastic, extremely knowledgeable and able to adapt theory and practise to each individual.
There was a great balance between hands on practical work and the necessary theory to teach Pilates effectively. The course was so good that it made a participant who wasn’t quite sold on Pilates very interested in pursuing it further!”
