Entries in continuing education (4)
Continuing education is such an important piece of your Pilates career. That’s why we have a Pilates Workshop calendar that lists Pilates training programs, workshops and conferences around the world. It’s a great place to start when you’re looking for something new to learn, or when you have your own workshop to promote.
We’ve just streamlined the listing submission process, dropped our prices for multiple listings, and we’re including more info with every listing.
