Instructor Trainer: A native of Italy, certified Instructor Trainer CLAUDIA FINK lives most of the year in Toronto Canada and is one of the elite team of ITs teaching at the STOTT PILATES International Certification Center. Fluent in five languages, Claudia travels internationally to educate students in the STOTT PILATES method.

Claudia's athletic background ranges from competitive equestrian show jumping, to professional water skiing and water polo. Drawn to Pilates due to injury sustained during her active sport career, She found STOTT PILATES a means to effectively and functionally correct posture, and strengthen and stabilize the body. Her interest in continuing education has drawn her to the fields of applied kinesiology and myofascial work. She is currently studying to become ACE certified.

You are not obliged to write (and pay for) two exams if you are planning to take both courses. You may choose to wait until completion of the second course to write your exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam). If you prefer to pause between courses, you may choose to take an exam to become certified in Matwork only, and another exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam) after completing the second course to become certified in Reformer work. In this case two exam fees would apply.
