Terms & Conditions

  1. Pre-requisites, Timing, Locations & Course Expectations
  • Courses generally run: Weekdays 12 - 7pm and Weekends 1 - 7pm, unless otherwise stated. Schedules may be shifted according to the needs of the trainer and the group attending the course. Courses are held at our Bukit Timah or River Valley studios.
  • Students are expected to arrive on time and to complete the number of hours of the course. The missing hours need to be made up privately at a rate of S$135 per hour on top of the original course fees. The missing hours needs to be made up within a week from the last day of the course.
  • Students are expected to participate in both theory and movement aspects of the training. In Teacher Training courses, students should expect to complete homework outside of the training hours as well as a take-home exam.
  • Pre-requisites: The Balanced Body module sequence can be entered at either Mat 1 or Reformer 1.  Interested students should have an established Pilates practice, a minimum of 10-20 sessions/classes in the modality being taught, and at least basic understanding of movement principles and anatomy.
  • There is no pre-requisite for entry to ABC: Anatomy Basics or to Anatomy in 3D (a preparation list will be given to students prior to the course). Please note, the ABC does not fulfill Balanced Body anatomy requirements towards Reformer/Comprehensive level Teacher Certification – for this, students may also select the 16 hour Anatomy in 3D course.
  • Entry to Reformer 3 requires the physical ability to perform exercises at Reformer 3 level. Students are advised to consult with TMA educators before making package payment.
  • The CoreAlign® teacher training is strongly recommended for individuals with a good background in movement instruction or physical rehabilitation, such as accredited Pilates instructors, personal trainers, physical therapists, occupational therapists, etc. CoreAlign 1 is a pre-requisite to further work on CoreAlign 2.  ALL CoreAlign courses are held at our River Valley studio.
  • Manual fees are included, and are required for course participation. DVDs are optional and are available at additional cost.

 

  1. Course Certificates, Mentoring and Certification
  • Undertaking the course(s) does not immediately equate to becoming a Certified Instructor. The student is required to complete a number of self-practice, observation and teaching hours prior to examination.  This may involve additional fees for classes, practice equipment, mentoring, etc.
  • TMA offers a comprehensive Mentoring Program. Course students are immediately entitled to access, for 12 months following their last course, to the 3 branches of the studio for self-practice, observation and practice teaching at varying package prices and according to space availability, according to the terms of the Mentoring Program.
  • Anatomy students intending on participating in developing further are entitled to 6 months of TMA Mentoring status.
  • For Singapore-based participants, course completion certificates will be sent to TMA for self-collection by the participant.
  • For participants outside Singapore, TMA will send the certificates directly to the address specified during the enrolment at additional cost. Requests for other arrangements may be made but at the full cost and liability of the participant.
  • Final Test Out for Teacher Certification at all levels can be held with Movement Academy educators. Applications for Final Test Out (no cost unless expedited) should be made directly to Balanced Body headquarters once all required hours are completed using the following form: http://www.pilates.com/resources/education/test-out-application-mar2011.pdf                    Upon approval, you and our educators will be informed and a test out date will be scheduled.
  • Final Test Out Fees are as follows: Mat Teacher Certification Test Out: $350 SGD; Reformer/CoreAlign®: $400; Comprehensive $425.
  • TMA strongly recommends a Mock Exam before application for test out. This 90 min practice exam is priced at $160 SGD.

 

  1. Registration, Cancellations, Refunds and Schedule Changes
  • Registration is on a first-come-first-serve basis. Full payment guarantees placement in the course.
  • There is strictly no refund for cancellations after the fee is paid or if a student withdraws during the course.
  • Courses may be cancelled or rescheduled at the sole discretion of The Movement Academy if number of enrolments does not meet the minimum required. TMA will provide at least 14 days’ calendar notice via email in such an event, refunding any payments made in the case of cancellation. TMA is not responsible for any outside costs incurred due to schedule change.

 

  1. Disclaimer – The Movement Academy and all its affiliates and staff related to the course will not be held liable for any loss of property or life, injury or inconvenience accredited to or from participating in or intending to participate in, before, during or after the course.
