Matwork Course Upgrade


IMPORTANT: This information is only relevant for anyone who has completed the Studio Pilates Matwork Course prior to 2017.

In January 2017, Studio Pilates launched its brand new Matwork Course featuring a new Online Training Centre and course manual.

We are now giving Studio Pilates Matwork trained instructors the opportunity to upgrade and receive access to the new Online Training Centre and manual.

Do I Qualify to Purchase the Updated Matwork Online Training Centre? 

If you have completed the Studio Pilates Matwork Course prior to 2017, you are able to purchase access to the new and revised Online Training Centre

Can I Purchase a Hard Copy of the New Matwork Manual? 

Yes! The new Matwork Manual is pretty big (496 pages!). That's a lot to print out yourself, so if you would prefer a hard copy of the manual, simply select this option at the checkout. Please be aware the digital option when upgrading a course does not include the hard copy manual as this is not a course enrolment as stated on the online training centre, this is a course upgrade. The digital manual isn't able to be downloaded either, you will be able to access this when connected to the internet on a web browser.
