The Systems Program presents the same material as the Comprehensive training but in a different format. The curriculum covers beginner, intermediate and advanced level exercises utilizing the Pilates apparatus - Mat, Reformer, Cadillac, Chair, Barrels, Ped-o-Pull and Magic Circle - as well as understanding how to work with Special Case clients (i.e. obesity, pregnancy, back problems, neck, knee, shoulder, etc.

The System Training track allows students to complete their education over a longer time period or while meeting other obligations (work, family, etc.). Systems I, II, and III are designed to be taken together, progressing to a new level within 12 months of finishing the previous level. They should not be looked at as stand-alone programs. Completing all three levels is equivalent to a Comprehensive certificate.
