Thanks to this program, I returned home and found myself quickly becoming one of the most popular instructors in Stockholm. By focusing on the movement and core principles behind each Pilates exercise—and not only on its sequences or “steps”—Teri gave me the competitive edge that most other instructors lacked. My practice soon became so popular that in 2006, I opened my own Pilates studio.”


-Linda Eek (Stockholm, Sweden)

"I want to thank you for sharing your wealth of knowledge over this online certification course.I have admired the thoughtful progression of your class and the clarity of your cues for a long time as a student at Steps. It has been such a treat to be able to learn from you through this lockdown!"

"Thanks Teri! It has been a pleasure learning through you as an instructor in multiple mediums, both recently and previously."



The Steele Pilates ReForMat Certification is an advanced Mat Certification designed to teach currently certified Pilates Mat and/or Apparatus instructors the ReForMat disciplines created and presented by Teri Lee Steele that reimagines Pilates apparatus exercises as a mat-based discipline. Perfect for any Pilates instructor to increase your exercise vocabulary and to recreate an apparatus session virtually or in-home with very few, space-conscious props!


Five workshop videos, each 3 hours long that teach the ReForMat disciplines of Basic/Intermediate Stability Ball, Foam Roller Exercises, ReForMat Slider Exercises, Steele Pilates Advanced Sequencing & Variations, and Advanced Stability Ball Exercises.  You also receive the course syllabuses for each workshop.  Upon completion of the lecture/demonstration videos and an online ReForMat Certification exam, you will receive the Advanced ReForMat by Steele Pilates Certification! 


The ReForMat by Steele Pilates Certification is a 20-hour course taught by Teri Lee Steele for currently certified Pilates Instructors that includes Basic through Advanced Stability Ball, Foam Roller, and ReForMat TM Slider Exercises as well as the Steele Pilates Advanced Sequencing & Variations Workshop.  ReForMatTM by Steele Pilates was created by Teri Lee Steele to reimagine Pilates Apparatus vocabulary into mat-based disciplines to broaden the instructor’s ability to re-create an apparatus session during in-home or virtual classes.
