It goes deep

Our training is not a crash course. You’ll be guided through hours of comprehensive content and practice teaching to ensure you graduate fully equipped to teach exceptional classes. Our expert teaching team is continuously reviewing and refining the courses, keeping you up-to-date with the latest from the industry to ensure you’re an in-demand teacher from the onset. Waitlisted classes? Oh, you know it.

Get ongoing support

We’re here to guide you every step of the way. You can ask questions at any time online and they will be answered by a lead trainer almost immediately. You will also gain lifetime access to our Facebook community of trainees and graduates.

Teach anywhere

This training is not a syllabus or licensing program. We teach you the art of sequencing and class planning, so you can design your own unique classes. Our graduates are teaching worldwide – giving you the freedom to teach anywhere.

Get job ready

We don’t just teach the anatomy and the sequencing, but how to be an exceptional teacher. That means support in applying for jobs at your dream studios, industry connections and continued education opportunities. Fancy adding some creative repertoire into your mix or honing in on prenatal classes? Well fancy that, it’s what we specialise in. Tailoring programs to support your unique career path is our love language. (That, and croissants.)

What certifications will you receive?

Every graduate gets a globally recognised certification, which means you can teach anywhere in the world. Corfu. Costa Rica. Canada. Your local studio. All great options.

Got more questions? We have answers.

Book a virtual coffee chat with our Teacher Training Expert Emma to find out everything you need to know about our courses and accreditations. We’re nice. (At least our mums think so).

Having done the training, the communication was so good, the teacher training team are so supportive and friendly and you have access to the whole Barre Body Teacher Training network via Facebook, so reaching out for help is easy and accessible.

Kristin Scott – Studio Owner

I was looking for a comprehensive course, that could fit in with my business, and I chose Barre Body because I really liked what they had to offer.

Kylie Morrison – Studio Owner

Learning that Barre was a mixture, of ballet, yoga and Pilates, it just intrigued me to be part of the community as a Barre lover. The girls in the group and the friendships formed have just been priceless. The teachers are just so caring, and I felt like I was in the Barre family.

Liesl Visagie – Graduate

My life has changed, in the way that I now choose to go with my gut instincts, a lot more than I ever used to. If you are considering the training, I would say, believe in yourself, go for it, and if you have a passion, you will succeed.

Alicia Price – Studio Owner

I love learning about the anatomy and how to be more knowledgeable and how to be a good teacher, and to continue to learn and grow in the field. I have referred Barre Body to some of my friends who have asked which places to train with.

Alana Joy Dintinosante – Graduate

I chose Barre Body because I knew some other people who had already done the Barre Body course and people in the industry who I respected. The training was absolutely amazing. I can’t speak highly enough of the Facilitors.It’s definitely worth the investment.

Carlie Bauer – Graduate

We’ve got the press talking too.
