Becoming a Pilates Instructor

I remember when I started to think about becoming a Pilates instructor. I had recently given birth to my first child and was trying to move from working full time as a development officer and teaching children dance part time into something that I could do during the years my son was little. When I realized that I could use the same principles of movement that I practiced and taught in dance and teach adults to exercise more efficiently, effectively and safely through Joseph Pilates brilliant system, I was hooked. In addition, I would be able to set my own flexible hours, and have the benefit of spending time doing something that I loved. Becoming a Pilates Instructor was the best decision I made for my teaching career.

Fast forward 18 years and my oldest son is graduating from high school this Spring. In these 18 years, the Pilates industry has blossomed and it’s vibrancy is due to the powerful impact the system has had on all levels of fitness and movement from post-rehabilitation to elite athletes. The Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) has built a credentialing program that allows those of us who have mastered and championed Joe’s work to build programs that continue his legacy with knowledge, integrity and best practices.
