Bridge Course

Stretch Collective’s Pilates Bridge program is ideal for those who have completed another style of Pilates teacher training and wish to continue their certification with us. This is also great for instructors who would like a refresher or learn more about our innovative teaching techniques and apply them to their existing teaching repertoire.
