Ready to Change Lives?

Welcome to Aleenta Training, where we're dedicated to helping you become a skilled and inspiring Pilates Instructor. Our focus is on empowering you to go beyond just learning technique and exercises. We want you to become a confident leader who can create dynamic and effective classes anywhere you go. With our small class sizes and expert guidance, you'll develop the skills and confidence needed to become a teacher, coach, educator, champion, and community builder.

Our ultimate goal is to help you make a meaningful impact on the lives of others through the transformative power of Pilates.

Why Choose Aleenta Training

We've been running Studios, employing, training and educating Instructors for a decade. We understand the need and demands of a Pilates career. And we know that being confident in how you teach is just as important as what you teach.

  • All-Inclusive Course

    Every training provider is going to tell you their Course is the best (it’s ours, ours is the best 😜), so it can be tricky to work out what’s right for you. What sets Aleenta Training apart is that we provide an all-inclusive training package. What this means is there are no hidden costs! In any reputable Pilates Training Course, you'll be required to complete self-mastery, observation and practice teaching hours. The burden of finding a Studio to do this can be onerous and these hidden costs can often run into hundreds, sometimes thousands, of additional dollars. At Aleenta Training this is all-included. Plus you get a taste for teaching real classes in a real Studio in our trainee-led community classes every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon.

  • Expert-Led Training

    Co-Founders, Alicia and Dr Dan Harvie, not only created the Courses, but are your Teacher Trainers. With a wealth of knowledge and experience, Alicia and Dan are passionate about sharing their expertise and guiding you to become a skilled instructor. They run the weekly Tutorials and Intensives so you're learning from the experts at every stage of your journey. Their comprehensive curriculum, certified by AUSactive, covers everything from fundamental principles to practical teaching techniques. Alicia and Dan specialise in teaching you how to teach group classes in addition to 1:1 and small group teaching.

  • Supportive Environment

    We believe learning should be a joyful and inclusive experience. We're with you every step of the way with weekly guidance, support and loads of face-to-face time. You'll enjoy a welcoming and supportive community celebrating your progress and achievements. We learn from each other and welcome the variety of skills, knowledge and experience into the classroom.

    You also get to experience Training as part of real Studios and support your cohort in teaching trainee-led classes.

    As the ONLY Pilates Training Course in Australia offering all-inclusive Training you'll graduate as a confident, competent instructor ready to teach.

How Our Courses Work

Your 150hr Course learning journey starts with online coursework and weekly evening online tutorials. These tutorials offer accountability, ample access to Alicia and Dan for questions, and most importantly keep you on track. The tutorials are crucial for thorough preparation before the 4-Day In-person Intensive, where the real magic happens. The Intensive concludes with a Practical Assessment. Your Course also includes your self-mastery classes, observation and practice teaching classes in our student clinic with real clients.

Enrolments for 2024 are now open.

Note: the In-Person Intensives are held over four days in Adelaide. The rest of the Course can be completed online, at your own location.

Meet Your Course Creators



My name's Alicia, and with my husband Dr Daniel Harvie, we've created Aleenta Training to train people just like you. Dan and I are passionate about inspiring and developing the next generation of Instructors with Courses we wished were available when we started out.

Dan adds his clincian's eye to our Courses as a Lecturer & Researcher, a Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist and published author. And I add my copious amounts of qualifications in movement, combined with 15 years experience as a Professional Contemporary dancer, Pilates and Barre Instructor and Studio owner.

I absolutely love sharing my love of movement and teaching you to become movement experts yourself.

As fitness professionals we are at the forefront of keeping people moving in a safe and effective way.

My aim is to inspire you to change people's lives and become a teacher, a coach, an educator, a champion, a culture and community maker.

I promise you there's nothing more rewarding.

Student ❤️ Notes


Ellie Parnell

“The Course was very thorough and I particularly enjoyed the anatomy and biomechanics sections. Even though I know a lot about this already, I loved learning how to apply it to the different barre exercises. I’m also used to working in a rehab setting so I loved learning how teach at a faster pace which is what I need to do get people the results with barre. This course is perfect for anyone with an interest in dance or human movement."


Natalie Sawyer

Natalie undertook Aleenta Barre Training and loved it so much joined us again for Mat Pilates Training.

“After undertaking the Barre Course, I immediately implemented Barre into our Dance Studio which created another class style for our community to attend. There was also a huge benefit to my own personal fitness because it’s a style similar to dance which I personally thoroughly enjoy. Adding the Pilates concepts to the dance classes will also help the dance students to refine their movements and also add another dimension to our barre classes."

Ricky Goss, Barre and Pilates Instructor

"I took the leap to become an Instructor as I wanted to learn more about my body as I have some injuries. I wanted to be able to share this knowledge with others and help them to understand their bodies more too. I also want to help share these forms of exercise that others may not know could be so rewarding.

I chose Aleenta Training because I was attending their classes and I loved the friendly culture. They put so much care and attention into every client in their Studios! I learnt a lot of body awareness during my training and I love the amount of time we spent ensuring we understand how it feels on our body. I feel like I know myself so much better. I learnt about my strengths and weaknesses and how I can use this knowledge to become a better Instructor. The Course felt so much more of a wholistic training course.
