Trauma-Informed training for pilates teachers

A course for Pilates teachers who want to offer their clients an elevated, Trauma-Informed experience

Trauma is the loss of power and control.

Pilates is a system that’s built on core connection, power and control, and mind-body connection. What better place to help someone affected by trauma regain their power and control?

Pilates isn’t a rigid system of exercises that are only done one way. Our teaching is flexible and adaptable.

A Trauma-Informed Approach to Pilates is exactly the same. It’s not a “check-the-box” education, but instead, a broad framework that we’re always trying to apply to our practice.

The good news? It’s not something you have to “get right.” It’s about having a deeper understanding of how trauma affects those around us and always applying what you’re learning to how you teach, interact, and communicate with your clients.

What is Trauma-Informed Pilates?

People experience all kinds of trauma in life that affect how we interact with and respond to others.

When a Pilates teacher learns about how trauma affects people, and then applies what they learn to how they teach, that is Trauma-Informed Pilates.

It doesn’t mean changing the entire way you teach, or falling into guilt and shame that you’ve been doing everything wrong.

A Trauma-Informed approach often means doing small, simple things to give the student power.

Trauma-Informed Pilates means a better, more uplifting experience for students and teachers.

Does trauma-informed mean we’re treating trauma?



You understand that trauma exists, but don’t alter your teaching practice


You understand the effects of trauma adapt your teaching & interactions.



You specifically treat or address trauma: therapists, counselors, etc.

Being Trauma-Informed means we change how we interact, speak, and work with our clients. It’s not our job to treat it, and it doesn’t help to ignore it either. We simply accept that trauma exists for many people and do what we can to make our actions and words less harmful and more supportive for anyone who may be affected by trauma.

Meet Your Trauma-Informed Pilates Teacher

Hi, I’m Beth, founder and teacher at Trifecta Pilates.

I had been a Pilates teacher for 7 years, but never felt like I had enough education to really impact my clients in the way I wanted to.

Through professional connections with college organizations, I realized what was missing from my Pilates education: a trauma-informed approach.

Students dealing with all different types of trauma were getting help from on-campus organizations, but then they were going out into the world without the support they needed outside a clinical setting. And I knew many of these students would end up in a Pilates class just like mine.

So I started researching. I found a lot of resources for trauma-informed yoga but I wanted a Pilates-specific training. It just didn’t exist.

I used all the education and knowledge I had from creating trauma-informed frameworks for other organizations outside of Pilates, and started applying it to our practice. And the Trauma-Informed Pilates Approach course was created!

My background in health education, Pilates, and trauma are all rolled up into this effective training for Pilates teachers. I’m so honored to spread this work through the Pilates world, giving you and your students a more elevated experience.
