Why we created this course

Co-owner of PPF & Head of Education Emily Boult has instructed thousands of prenatal clients, as well as having practised Pilates throughout her three pregnancies.

“I created this course after observing that many Pilates instructors were afraid to instruct prenatal clients, as they lacked the confidence that comes with understanding the theory behind pregnancy. Once instructors are empowered with the knowledge and guidelines regarding how pregnancy and exercise work together, instructing prenatal clients becomes second nature. Pilates instructors who have completed this course have gained infinite confidence and find it so much easier and more enjoyable to instruct prenatal clients!
— Emily Boult, PPF Co-founder and course creator
