J Pilates Teacher Training Certification
Pilates Based Certifications
Creator of J Pilates & J Barre
Lindsey, also known as Lacy J, grew up training as a dancer from the age of 3 all the way through college. In college Lacy J received her Bachelor of Science in Dance and minor in Psychology. Wanting to continue her passion for movement, Lacy J then enrolled herself in an extensive Pilates training Program, Core Dynamics, in Santa Fe, NM under Pilates master Michelle Larsson. Lindsey not only learned equipment and mat Pilates levels 1-4, but continued her education with Pilates for Scoliosis, Pilates for Pre & Post Natal, Pilates for Golfers, as well as Advanced Pilates training Level 5 on the apparatus and mat.
After 4 years of teaching at numerous Pilates studios (including her own in-home studio in Austin, TX), Lacy J took on the Pilates Coordinator position at Equinox in Dallas, TX. While at Equinox she furthered her fitness trainings with Barre, Power Plate, Kettle Bell & ViPR trainings.
After 3 years at Equinox, Lindsey moved with her growing family to Midland, TX where she opened her first brick and mortar studio. It was during her adventure of opening her first studio when Lacy J developed her own style of training and started to teach J Pilates to her first set of J Instructors.
Lacy J’s J Pilates programs are designed from her background trainings to get a full body workout, boost the metabolism, incorporate interval training, as well lengthen and strengthen the muscles in a safe manner using the Reformer, Tower, Chair, Mat, Barre and other smaller/basic fitness equipment.
Why Choose J Pilates or J Barre Teacher Training
J Pilates & J Barre Teacher Trainings are for two types of current or future Instructors:
Instructors looking to train and teach at a Certified J Pilates or J Barre Location
Instructors looking to be future J Pilates or J Barre studio AFFILIATES
First one is for anyone looking to become J Pilates or J Barre Certified at an already established J Pilates location.
(If you would like to teach at another studio NOT Affiliated with J Pilates, you must complete J Reform I & II, possibly Reform III, depending on how many training hours the studio recommends before you teach at their location. J Barre may teach at another location after completion.
**If you are not currently certified in any type of Pilates, you must complete J Reform Level I or J Barre depending on what your current affiliate studio requires. If you DO have another certification other than J Reform that has been accepted by your affiliate studio, you must complete our "How to J Teach" continuing education, before you begin teaching at any J Certified location.**
Second one is for any current or future instructors looking to open their very own J Pilates or J Barre location.
