Students should plan to complete between 6-15 practice hours per week outside of workshop hours to be exam-ready. If your schedule doesn’t allow this right now, we’d love to have you apply when you can make this commitment.

For mat training practice hours, they can be done in your home, or any other location with space for Pilates mats.

For equipment training practice hours, students will be given specific hours to access the NYP studios. All hours need to be completed before test out dates. Please see attendance policy for information about workshop hours.
