Pilates Method Alliance Corporate Sponsor

CASA Pilates Equipment is a proud Corporate Sponsor of the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA)

Pilates Method Alliance Corporate Sponsor  Pilates Method Alliance

The Pilates Method Alliance (PMA) is the not-for-profit professional association dedicated to the Pilates field.

Since its inception in 2001, 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.

The Alliance is comprised of paying members, the vast majority of whom are career Pilates teachers, studio owners, Pilates school owners and faculty, or all of the above. The volunteer Board of Directors that govern the PMA come from that same demographic and are democratically elected by the members. The Alliance is managed and administered by a salaried staff based in Miami, Florida.

The PMA produces live events such as our Annual Meeting and Pilates Educators Summit. We coordinate a global Pilates-awareness event called Pilates Day and support other profile-raising initiatives such as Heroes in Motion®, Pilates 4 Youth, and Pilates is Health.

The PMA also support a Research Committee as an integral part of the evolution and practice of the Pilates method, knowing that sound research and evidence-based practice is necessary to ensure that Pilates is effective, efficient, and safe.

Significantly, in 2017 the PMA launched its Pilates School Approval Program (PSAP) which establishes Standards for Pilates schools. Benefiting both prospective students and schools alike, this program provides assurance to all parties that the school has met the 10 Educational Standards established by the PMA.

The National Pilates Certification Program (NPCP) is an autonomous certification program within the PMA. It was developed by the PMA in 2005, and it offers the only third-party certification in the Pilates field. Accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) in 2012, the NPCP joins a group of more than 250 programs from 100 organizations that have received and maintained NCCA accreditation. By establishing this credential, the PMA put into place an essential component required for any established profession.

We urge you to join us and support our efforts to elevate the status of Pilates teachers and build this new profession.

Peak Pilates® casa™ Reformer
Katia T. (Chula Vista, US)
Excellent

The reformer is excellent! Love the model which is really good price and it works perfect, just like a studio reformer

Good Machine

I am quite pleased with the Private Pilates Reformer/Caddy combo. It's well built, was easy to assemble, and had a must faster shipping time than other brands right now. It's working great and easy to convert. I dislike the particular caribiner clips it comes with (super clunky and hard to open and close quickly), and needed to add clips to the pulley cords for quick changes between foot loops and handles, so that was a bummer, but it was easy to buy replacements at a local hardware store for around $20. No other issues!

Peak Pilates® casa™ Reformer

Great machine, great experience

Bought the Casa after several years of another home machine. No comparison! It's well built, quiet, and easily adaptable to my needs. It was shipped sooner than expected and customer service was quick to respond to my inquiries. Highly recommend.

Peak Pilates® fit™ Reformer
Lisa W. (Kaneohe, US)
I finally got a reformer!!

I just love my new reformer and reformer!!! I've been waiting years for this and I'm so grateful for CASA helping me with it!!

Best Home Gym Addition

I love this reformer! When 2020 hit, the only gyms that stayed open in my area were pilates studios. I had always wanted to try reformer workouts, so I jumped at the chance to fit it into my schedule. Once I was sold on the activity, I began to research machines. I am so happy with my choice! This is a fantastic reformer with great springs, solid construction, and smooth glide. The only heads-up I would give is that if you are used to studio machines, this one does lie lower to the ground. However, after getting adjusted to that one difference, I have been having SO MUCH fun with it!
