Filed for patent in the USA in 1931, The Wunda Chair has a unique history and an exciting future. What makes our course on The Chairs unique is that we include the Electric Chair and traditional and evolved exercise families on the Baby / Arm chair as well. While each apparatus provides a unique geometry and application for human movement, the Chairs are must-haves in Pilates studios globally. 

Being part of TMRACADEMY means that you are an agent of a positive change within the industry, equipping your clients with information and detail about the true method, just without the dogma and 'ivory tower' vibes of big-brand Pilates schools.

Study with us in a format that suits you; module by module with the most comprehensive approach to the method on the market. As a graduate, you will come to know the apparatus and eventually the system with depth and confidence.


We teach you the original work as made by Joseph Pilates. We go the extra mile to explain where some first generation teachers have embellished or made worthwhile modifications and how this deviates from Mr Pilates' work and in which situations this can be useful.

We then take the masterpiece that is the true Pilates method and using building blocks put together by our course director you'll be equipped to teach the fundamentals of intelligent movement and equip your clients to achieve their goals with the original work.

We show you the meat and potatoes of the work so you understand not just the exercises but the detail and philosophy... this way you aren't a graduate scratching your head thinking, "Do I even teach Pilates?"

OG Pilates + movement education + exercise science + common sense + a good time = TMRACADEMY.


Have you felt the difference between Classical Pilates and other dilutions of the method? Before you sign up to another course and become another cookie-cutter ‘Reformer Pilates’ instructor ... save yourself the heartache and try some sessions IRL or online with us.



We are truly here for you. Training courses can be a challenge for a variety of reasons, but that's the benefit of training with TMRACADEMY, you'll have the course director's email address and phone number. As industry veterans, we will work to ensure you graduate with every success and happiness.
