HOW IT WORKS
COMPLETE YOUR FIRST MODULE
Both of our required modules are offered once a year.
Anatomy & Kinesiology is held entirely in the Spring, and Methodology & Philosophy can begin anytime with your mentorship, Sequencing in October, or The Hot Pilates Training Level 1 in Spring. Make up is always available should you have a conflict.
COMPLETE YOUR SECOND MODULE
Once you have completed your first 100-hours, you have 3 years to take the second without re-applying. Make up is always available if you have a conflict.
TEACH YOUR FINAL CLASS
Once you have completed both modules, our Advisor will help schedule your final class at your convenience. You can then invite your friends to share everything you have learnt, and celebrate your achievement.

Gabriella Walters is the founder of Inferno Hot Pilates, the first dedicated Hot-Pilates studio in Las Vegas. Originally from Budapest, Hungary, Gabi grew up as an accomplished athlete, competing in Track and Field and winning her age group in many events including the Long Jump, High Jump, 400m, and 800m distances. She moved to the US in 2002 to compete in Fitness where she participated in many events across the country. Only after suffering a severe knee injury, did she discover Meditation, Yoga, and Pilates.
In 2008, Gabi’s spiritual journey took her to India, where she learned Deeksha (Oneness Blessing). After months of prayer and meditation on the other side of the globe, Gabi came home to Las Vegas and realized her own purpose — to make a difference in the world and in other people’s lives. Channeling her desire to help others with her love of fitness, Gabi began studying Yoga — becoming a Hatha Yoga Instructor and getting certified in Power Yoga (Bryan Kest). In 2010, she became certified in Pilates through Balanced Body University (Jessica Abed-Rabbo) and started the Hot-Pilates craze in the Las Vegas area.
In 2012, Gabi started Inferno Pilates — the first dedicated Hot-Pilates studio in Las Vegas. Hot-Pilates is a challenging, full body, low impact, high intensity workout, using Pilates principles. The room is heated to 95 degrees. It is designed for all fitness levels. It helps tone and strengthen muscles without the pounding of a high impact workout.
"... I am super grateful of the opportunity to practice teach. That made a great difference in my progression. By far that was the key to your program – giving us all the opportunity to teach and get used to speaking, yogi-ing, putting together sequences, etc. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for not just filling our brains! You let our brains activate our bodies."
