Teacher Certification
Authentic Pilates

The Independent Study Option is for students who are unable to relocate to Seattle to pursue the program at Metropolitan Pilates under Dorothee VandeWalle. This option allows students to complete sections of their practical training at a different training center while still having the opportunity to study with Dorothee.

Students who enroll in the Independent Study Option must present a plan of study with their application. This plan of study must include the name of the studio where the student will be studying, the teacher-trainer who will be supervising the practical training, and how many hours in each stage of the program the student will be completing at the other training center and/or at Metropolitan Pilates.
