Kevin Bowen, one of the countries top Pilates educators, will be the master educator teaching our first Beginner Mat Training in July. Kevin comes to Kor180 with 25+ years of fitness experience. He is the former Director of Education for Peak Pilates and the co-founder & past President of the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA).

Kor180 is quickly expanding through owned & operated studios and franchise opportunities.

Our comprehensive program includes:

  • Anatomy Basics & Pilates Application
  • Mat I Module: See below

At the end of the weekend intensive, students will be able to design & teach a full class that challenges beginners, intermediates and advanced students alike.
