New York Classical Pilates Teacher Training

Our 2020 Program is now enrolling at BodyTonic!

We are thrilled to announce that BodyTonic will be hosting the New York Classical Pilates Teacher Training Program. Jennifer DeLuca, owner of BodyTonic Pilates Gymnasium, is joining forces with Enja Schenck of Classical Pilates NYC to bring an unparalleled Pilates Teacher Training experience.


Enja Schenck

Ms. Schenck brings 15 years experience of teaching Pilates, 10 years of teacher training, and an M.S. degree in Exercise Science to NYCPTT. Certified by late Pilates Master Teacher, Bob Liekens, Enja had the privilege to work by his side for 8 years. Under Bob’s guidance she became teacher-of-teachers, served as lead teacher for the National and International Power Pilates Teacher Training Program, and continues to teach workshops in the U.S. as well as overseas. Enja’s teaching is strongly rooted in research, science and evidence-based critical thinking -- there is no such thing as a bad question!

Jennifer DeLuca

Ms. DeLuca brings her legacy as a second generation Pilates teacher under Romana Kryzanowska, 23 years of Pilates teaching experience with a broad spectrum of clientele, 16 years of creating skilled Pilates Teachers, plus running a successful classical Pilates studio for 20. Jennifer has an incredible passion for this work and an understanding of adaptability that will inspire, inform and give you the confidence to leave the program ready to teach.
