Upon interviewing instructors for regional positions, only to find that most had been "certified" in 2-day courses, Pilates Associates Managing Partners, Tori Brown, and Chimene Montivero-Cole M.S.,P.T, launched Pilates Associates Teacher Training Institute to provide comprehensive education to serious Pilates students. PATTI programs teach much more than repertoire. Our graduates are proficient in anatomy, biomechanics and posture assessment. Contraindications for special populations/conditions and physician interaction is part of our standard curriculum. Physical Therapists love working with our graduates. Since its inception, PATTI has grown into an Internationally recognized educator and continuing education workshop provider.
