I'm a personal trainer & I'd like to add mat pilates certification to my education.
I've been researching pilates schools in the Northern California but am finding quite a variety and nothing that begins before next Spring, at least in my local area. Also, the courses I have found are quite costly and time consuming (4-6 weekends long.) Does anyone know of a week-long or shorter pilates mat certification training where I could get my teacher certification? Northern CA is preferred, but I'd travel to So. CA or surrounding states for the right training. Thank you!
Good for you.
I believe that the phrase, "we get what we pay for", comes into play here. I prefer longer courses so I am more professional to deal with people's health. Trust me, your clients will also appreciate that; along with the scope of practice and insurance concerns.
Why the rush, anyway?

I Hope this Helps!
Have you tried STOTT Pilates? You can visit their site at www.stottpilates.com
Power Pilates has a Beginner Mat Certification in January in Los Altos, CA. It's a weekend certification. You'll gain the knowledge you need and the experience of this course is well worth it.
Hope this helps. Best of luck!
