Saskatoon Pilates Now Offers Core Dynamics Pilates Teacher Training Program


Kathy Bond, award winning founder of Saskatoon Pilates, shares information in their latest article about the Pilates Teacher training offered by Saskatoon Pilates,  and specifically why she has chosen to work with Core Dynamics.


Core Dynamics Pilates Teacher Training program places its focus on developing trainees to embody the Pilates method, understand human movement as well to teach the Pilates method correctly to a wide variety of clientele versus just teaching the exercises of leading classes. Core Dynamics offers a unique ‘boutique’ program based on historical Pilates, with small class sizes, individual attention, mentorship experiences and a select group of highly qualified educators and affiliates. Core Dynamics is the approach to Pilates teaching that was created by Eve Gentry and developed by Michele Larsson.


"I have now been teaching Pilates for 20 years and have worked with several “elders” in the Pilates world. Ron Fletcher, Kathy Grant, Mary Bowen, Lolita San Miguel and several of their protegees, plus second-generation teachers like Dianne Miller, Alan Herdman, Gillian Hessel, and Elizabeth Larkham. I did not personally work with Eve Gentry but was introduced to her work through Michele Larsson and this is the one that resonated most with me.
Eve was a professional dancer who worked with Joseph Pilates and with his guidance was able to fully recover from a radical mastectomy.
When Eve moved to Santa Fe, she started working with compromised bodies that were not able to do a full Pilates program and thus began the Fundamentals that we use as the basis for all of our clients and programs. I did try other teacher training programs, which were good, but none of them gave the same in-depth training that Core Dynamics gave."   Kathy Bond, Owner Saskatoon Pilates 

A History Of Excellence

In 2005 Saskatoon Pilates became a mentoring studio for Core Dynamics and trained 8 comprehensive teachers as an affiliate Since becoming the Canadian trainer, I have trained 4 comprehensive and 1 mat teacher, with 2 teachers ready to finalize their comprehensive certification. With the new Pilates designation of Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher (NCPT) through the Pilates Method Alliance, it becomes imperative that the quality of teacher training programs has national recognition. Core Dynamics has that! The team at Saskatoon Pilates are responsible for keeping our clients safe and that we are recognized as professional movement educators.

My Mom asked what the best was and we told her it was from a little place inside the Farmers Market a while ago . Mom started laughing because this was the place that used to be inside the Farmers  Market - so really they have done the 1st and 2nd best chai lattes ever!

Please share any other comments relating to your experience with the company. 


 "This was an interesting test for Scott Roofing because of some strange circumstances which they handled very well.The roofing material loader (a 3rd party company - not Scott Roofing) - fell through my roof when delivering. Honest accident. They had a repair person there in minutes and properly fixed an entire side of the roof, actually adding value to my home. They let me know of the problem right away and did not try to hide it. There was no cost to me and they made sure I was happy with the work. "
"They finished the roofing just before a very powerful windstorm. I found a roofing nail on my deck not long after and wondered how many might be scattered on the lawn or neighbours lawn. Because the work happened while my family was on vacation, I didn’t want to mow my lawn, now very long due to vacation absence (ie shoot nails around) or have my kids play in the yard for fear of injury and therefore potential litigation. They agreed at no extra cost to come and do a second round of cleanup with a magnet. They did, and everything has been clear; my neighbours said they asked them if they could go over their yards too just in case."
"Scott Roofing’s quote came in 10-12% under 3 other companies that I contacted."
