I’m familiar with both STOTT and Balanced Body Education. I’m in favor of Balanced Body Education. You can choose a Master Trainer in your city or travel to a destination like London or Tokyo. Once you join the Balanced Body family, you have access to instructors who are passionate, educated, specialized in their field involving Pilates method and equipment. Each module is separate, so you can pay as you go, and you can go at your pace of learning. Prepare yourself by starting your observation hours and personal practice hours — even before the teacher training education module begins. Lastly, if you need additional education, Balanced Body offers BBFit, MOTR, Barre, Core Align and more. My favorite is the Balanced Body Anatomy in 3D. There is not better way to learn anatomy that with a skeleton and clay. It’s creative, informative and fun!
I look forward to meeting you in San Diego!
