The program itself can be conducted over several weekends, with each level taking 2-3 days. Program costs can range from $300-1500.There are a variety of places that you can get certified. I would recommend taking you mat certification at a studio that also offers a comprehensive Pilates instructor training program in case you want to move forward in the future, you'll already have a relationship with that studio.You may choose to start with a mat certification for a variety of reasons. One might be finances, another is you might not be certain Pilates is the direction you really want to go. The mat certification will give you an opportunity to get your feet wet teaching. You'll get some practice and you'll be able to build relationships with other Pilates studio and facilities in your community.Thank you for watching. For more information, go to About.com.
