OUR NEXT COURSE STARTS September 15th, 2024


Our Pilates instructor training course is a 105 hour Certification Course. The goal of our course is to teach you to become a dynamic instructor while at the same time providing the opportunity to explore and discover the power within yourself both as a teacher and as an individual. 


We keep our course size very small to ensure the most extensive and precise teacher training of its kind. We limit our class to 12 students, although you may be in a class of as little as 6 students. We feel that your experience and education will be vastly enhanced by having hands on instruction at all times. Come learn in a way that will prepare you to teach Pilates at the highest level. You owe it yourself and your future students. 

Holistic Bodyworx Pilates Instructor Training Certification course blends traditional Joseph Pilates teachings with the modern science of Pilates. The course will also teach you a new, innovate approach to teaching Pilates in the modern world of fitness where students work intensely to achieve top levels of fitness and health. You will learn other fitness dynamics independent of Pilates to help round out your class.

Certified Yoga Instructor
Certified Pilates Instructorr

Yvonne lives Yoga and Pilates every day. She has cultivated a commitment both through her practice and meditation.

She started out in the Martial Arts receiving black belts in Karate, Kobudo, and Tai Chi. Shortly after, she received her teacher’s certificate for teaching Yoga and Pilates. She sees the body as energy and having explored the element of energetic flow understands the benefits of reenergizing our bodies. As we create lines of energy through the body, we also create space through the joints and spine and as our bodies open, our minds begin to open. She understands that balance comes from a calm and focused mind.

She teaches a hatha flow yoga class where the mind, body and breathe are connected, moving from one move to the next with mindfulness and breath. She also teaches a vigorous Pilates class for a whole body workout .

"All of life is contained in this moment, in the space between thoughts, in the pause between breaths.” Stephen Shaw
