Based in Boulder, Colorado, sisters Amy Taylor Alpers and Rachel Taylor Segel studied with Joseph Pilates’ protégée, Romana Kryzanowska, who helped them set up the first formal comprehensive training programme in the industry in 1991.
Now, TPC’s education network spans the globe, and for the first time students in Edinburgh will be able to ‘train with the best’ at The Pilates Hub.
We can’t wait to get you started!
TPC brought the teacher out of me and helped me see how I could not just teach the exercises, but USE the exercises to affect someone’s health and wellbeing.
TPC really thrives at guiding you to find your own personal teaching style and eye while staying true to the Method.
TPC feels like passionate people sharing what they love who invite you to be a part of their family.
Lorna is a graduate of The Pilates Center’s Advanced Programme, The Pilates Center’s Master’s Programme, and is now a Licensed Teacher Trainer for The Pilates Center’s training programmes.
She has been advising on the teacher training team since 2014, and has helped more than twenty students along their paths to becoming teachers.
Her role as Licensed Teacher Trainer and Director of Education is to guide and advise students on the course, as well as administer all exams. She also oversees enrolment and administration, and leads the taught components of the course.
Lorna inspired me to become a Pilates teacher through her own teaching, and became a great mentor to me throughout my training.
It’s the sense she gives of not owning the work, but passing it on in her understanding of it and the body.
Her knowledge and experience is remarkable considering the time that she’s been teaching. For me this sets her up with the senior teachers in terms of expertise.
