The second studio is a large dedicated mat studio room with mats and equipment provided for every session as well as barre spaces which we use in both POWMAT and POWMIX classes and training.

Both studios have underfloor heating to keep you toasty during workouts and training.

Courses and Workshops

Covering comprehensive curricula, our courses allow you to immerse yourself in the subject that interests you. You can take a modular approach or do a Full Studio course. We would meet with you to discuss the best option for you based on your time and existing commitments.

All of our courses include access to the studio, observation of qualified teachers, teaching practice, formative assessment in the form of feedback, summative assessment in the form of a final practical exam and studio management – managing your clients and their different needs within a session. The courses carry CPD points and result in a qualification or certificate.

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ve put together a few Q&As that we’ve answered often. We can be flexible around you and your journey and time commitments so these are a guide. We encourage you to come and have a chat with us so that you can see the studio and so we can create a timeline and plan that works for you.
Fill out the form below or email us at teacher.training@powmak.com to book a visit.

Do I need to be a fitness professional to join one of your courses?

No you don’t. We can take you on a complete career change even if you’ve never worked or studied in fitness. There are no pre-requisites to our courses, we can take you through everything you need to qualify. Get in touch at teacher.training@powmak.com and we’ll advise on the best way forward for you.

How long will it take me to qualify?

This really depends on which course you do and how much time you can commit to it. We’re really flexible around our students and can make a training plan to fit into your life and current work or family commitments. For example, the Full Studio Course can take as little as 12 weeks but we give you 2 years’ access to the studio if you need to take longer. What we do is meet with you to work out an Individual Learning Plan to suit you. Get in touch at teacher.training@powmak.com to see what your journey might look like.

I’m a qualified Pilates teacher, I just need CPD points. Do you offer something for me?

Absolutely. Our Workshops are aimed at people who are already qualified and just want to keep up their CPD points. The Workshops carry 6 CPD points and cover repertoire only – so just 2 days of training lectures is the only commitment. Email teacher.training@powmak.com to arrange to discuss what would be best for you.

I’m not a Pilates teacher but I am qualified in Level 2 & 3. Do I need to re-do these modules?

This will depend on when you did your qualification and whether the training provider is recognised by the YMCA. If it’s been some time or the YMCA don’t recognise the course as a crossover, you will need to take these modules again. We’ll check it for you if you send us your certificates. Get in touch at teacher.training@powmak.com

Are your Pilates qualifications recognised abroad?

Yes, they are. All of our Pilates courses are accredited by the YMCA and recognised by Skills Active and REPs. These qualifications are recognised in Europe and America and we’ve had students join us from far afield to do their training.

Are all of your Pilates courses done in Windsor?

Yes, all of the training is done here at our large Pilates studio in Windsor Marina. There are lots of course elements that involve self-study so you only need come to the studio for training lectures and exams. However, it’s great to take advantage of the access to the studio for practice teaching and observation. We can put a plan together for you that has you spending intensive weeks/days at the studio to help you get the most out of your time here. We can also help you find accommodation if an intensive approach is right for you. We’ve had many students travel to us from further away. To work out the training plan for you. Email teacher.training@powmak.com and we’ll arrange to chat it through.
