The Pilates School Approval Program satisfies the need for a set of universal Standards for comprehensive Pilates teacher training. It also satisfies the need for a system that acknowledges the schools that provide evidence of compliance with the 10 Educational Standards for Pilates schools offering comprehensive training. The Standards consider program delivery, behavior, and outcomes. The Pilates School Approval Program structure is modeled after existing accrediting processes and vocational licensing practices used in many states. The application (self-study report) assists schools in developing requisite internal structures and processes, and equips schools with the components required for possible state licensing and accreditation.
  • The application process relies on the compilation of a “self study report.” This report consists of the responses and evidence provided by the school in establishing compliance.
