About Polestar Teacher Training

Polestar teacher trainings are Pilates instructor programs based on a scientific foundation of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics and motor control. We integrate scientific research findings in the areas of orthopedics, sports medicine and movement science. Polestar educators individually hold advanced degrees in a variety of movement modalities.

Our Pilates instructor training method is interactive, providing you with tools for critical thinking to become a Pilates instructor creating full fitness assessments and design goal-oriented programs.

Client-centered Curriculum

Our 450-Hour curriculum honors the tradition of classical Pilates movements while equipping students with the tools to adapt the Pilates method to any and all clients. Polestar Teacher Trainings empower critical thinking through concepts rather than repertoire. Our delivery is a hybrid of online lectures and in-person modules that give support throughout the entirety of the training. Our program will equip you to:

  • Teach Pilates movements on all the Pilates apparatus (Reformer, Trapeze Table, Chair, Ladder Barrel and Spine Corrector)

  • Understand precautions, contraindications and modifications for injury and special populations.

  • Utilize tactile cueing to provide hands-on guidance.

  • Employ neuro-linguistic techniques and imagery to give meaningful cues.

  • Build confidence through observation and practice teaching.

  • Assess and develop thoughtful programs for any client.

  • Prepare meaningful sequences based on Polestar’s sequencing design protocol.

Testimonials

Mirko taught me mat pilates and also mentored me through the Polestar Comprehensive rehab course.   He was obviously incredibly experienced and knowledgeable, whilst patient and light hearted throughout our sessions.  I felt he put us at ease especially when faced with more challenging exercises, and how to build up to them.   As an osteopath, I often had specific patients and their individual diagnosis in mind when developing treatment plans.  Mirko was a great help with these individual case histories and how to apply rehab pilates to my patients’ individual needs.  I would definitely recommend him for both mat and studio classes and mentoring - Suzanna 

Mirko was my mentor while I was preparing for my Polestar Pilates Comprehensive Studio Exams. He was incredibly encouraging and generous with his wealth of knowledge. His experience in fitness (not just pilates) and physical therapy really helped deepen my understanding of the functional applications of the various pilates exercises. Mirko was ever so patient and understanding during the whole process, which definitely helped calm my nerves and be better prepared for the exam - Xue Wei

Mirko was one of the first mentors I had upon the completion of the course modules. The first few mentoring sessions are always a challenge, not knowing what to expect. Mirko's approachability put us all at ease and we have enjoyed the mentoring sessions with him. He provides good learning points and ensures the critical parts of every exercise are covered either for demonstration or teaching. His mat classes are always interesting and a definite must as part of your observation. Mirko has been a great influence through my journey with Polestar Pilates - Daowei

I'm very grateful for having Mirko as my mentor in preparing for the Polestar Mat teacher exam. As an enthusiast with a full time job, it was challenging to juggle practicing, mentoring and working.

Mirko was really kind and made it as flexible as possible to suit my needs despite his own busy teaching schedule. I was always amazed at how fast each mentoring session flew by as it’s jam packed with all the fun and insightful nuggets that Mirko generously shared. These not only brought life to the theoretical knowledge, but also gave me a jump start in understanding and managing the clients’ needs in real life as a movement teacher. A big “thank you” to Mirko for helping me successfully becoming a Polestar teacher as well as the memorable and enriching learning experience - Vicky

Mentoring with Mirko is both fun and rewarding! By being compassionate and patient in guiding me on the important aspects of the exercises/syllabus, Mirko is effective is preparing me for the exam.

As a trainee trying to complete the logbook amidst an irregular work schedule and with limited resources, I am truly grateful for the opportunity to train under a thoughtful mentor like Mirko. Not to mention, we had so much fun in the process! - Lucretia

I love my mentoring sessions with Mirko! He played a crucial role as my mentor in the course of my mat training. An encouraging instructor, he never made me feel inadequate. His teachings are systematic and it was easy for me to track my progress in terms of the quality of my teaching and demonstration - Dionne

I want to thank Mirko for his mentoring in preparation for my polestar mat exam. He is always very patient and knowledgeable. His explanations are clear and helped me a lot on both my exercise mastery and teaching skills. I am very happy with my exam results - Amy
