the professional body for Pilates Teachers

What is the Pilates Teacher Association

PTA Logo

We are the professional body which represents Pilates Teachers who are committed to the creation of a distinct occupation – Pilates Teacher and to the preservation and teaching of the Pilates Method.

Our goal is to protect the public by creating a Register of Pilates Teachers who have appropriate qualifications, skills and experience to deliver the Pilates method to a wide range of the population.


Membership of the Association is only available when a Pilates teacher can evidence qualifications based on strict criteria and expertise in the Pilates Method.  We work to a strict code of ethics and code of conduct. If your Pilates Teacher is listed with us you will have a teacher with a sound education in the method and who is committed to continuing professional development.
