"Tom is a wonderful teacher not only because he is an expert, but also because he embodies compassion and caring for every student. It is a privilege to study with him."
- Teacher in Training

 Center of Balance has been a premier Pilates teacher training center since 2001, with full mat and equipment courses directed by Tom McCook for Balanced Body (BB).

The Center of Balance & BB Program is designed to create thoughtful, creative and successful Pilates teachers. Our curriculum emphasizes the principles underlying each exercise. Courses are modular and progressive, allowing students to build on their education and training in the way that works best for them. These courses are also a great opportunity for certified instructors to learn new teaching tools and for renewed inspiration.

CoreAlign Teacher Training
"A fabulous weekend! I feel fully prepared and ready to teach on the CoreAlign. It was also personally validating to me of the depth of my skill and experience as a teacher of movement. Tom McCook did an outstanding job of presenting the material in its inaugural weekend."

Learn this amazing innovation in functional movement education! A significant addition to a Pilates studio or personal training practice, CoreAlign training aims to stimulate the central nervous system to govern challenging natural whole-body-movements while creating a blend of flexibility, stability, strength and control.
