What is the PMA?

Professional Association

Founded in 2001, the Pilates Method Alliance is the professional association for Pilates teachers. Since its inception, Pilates teachers from around the world have worked together to create a unified community, to share knowledge and information, and most importantly, to establish the practice of teaching Pilates as a profession. Our mission is to advance Pilates as a profession and to promote and perpetuate the teachings of Joseph H. and Clara Pilates. By joining the association, you become part of a growing community of teachers that are committed to the development of the Pilates field. Membership is for those who have a far-reaching vision of what is possible when professionals actively work together to shape the future of their industry. Join the PMA and take your place in a global community of Pilates practitioners, teachers, and students who share your passion for Pilates.

In 2005, the PMA launched the only third party certification program for Pilates.
