Rachael Lieck Bryce | Pilates Methodology

Are you looking to make global connections for a lifelong career in the Pilates industry that aligns seamlessly with your dance practice?

You know that Pilates is corrective exercise with empirically-backed results. The industry is growing and needs dedicated, educated professionals to continue the original work of Joseph H. Pilates. The Real Pilates Teaching Training (RPTT) program is looking for talented, ambitious instructors to join their worldwide team.

RPTT instructors learn the tried and true method, combined with a modern approach to fitness, biomechanics and injury-prevention to train a diverse clientele, from professional athletes to seniors and everyone in between. Successful graduates can build a rewarding career with flexible hours, not to mention free to heavily discounted Pilates sessions.

Want to learn more? Nationally-recognized lead teacher trainer Rachael Lieck Bryce will be teaching a Pilates mat class, followed by an information session on Dallas’ RPTT program at Pilates Methodology.
