Documents to review:
If you have never taught a mat class or presented a workshop at one of our conferences before, you must obtain one written reference from a qualified professional that is familiar with your expertise. The writer must email the reference letter as a PDF directly Tanya Nieto-Winzey, Meeting Coordinator, at email@example.com. The email should come from the referee, not from the person being recommended. The PMA does not retain letter of recommendations from past applications, so a new letter must be submitted with every new application.
If you have never taught a mat class or presented a workshop at one of our conferences before, email Tanya Nieto-Winzey a link to a 5-minute video clip that shows you teaching Pilates in front of a group of people to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may use YouTube, Vimeo or any other similar service, as long as the link you send does NOT require creating an account or entering a password. Your application cannot be reviewed until or unless the video link is received. The PMA does not retain video links from past applications, so a new link must be submitted with every new application.
