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.

Quality Service

The gentlemen who installed my reformer where just that 'gentle'. They took extreme care with the equipment as well as the walls in my home.

Everything was functional when they left and they removed all of the packing materials from the house. Great job!

Elina Elite Reformer with Tower

It took a long time to come because of the pandemic but it was worth the wait. I love it and I'm enjoying regular workouts.

Every feature works perfectly on this high quality product.

Love ,love, love my reformer!

It took a long time to get here, but truly worth the wait. This piece of equipment is everything I hoped for and more. It is beautifully engineered and as good, if not better , than the Balanced Body I have used in the professional Pilates studio I attended prior to Covid . Regretfully it closed. But on a positive note I now can enjoy the same workout at home and on my own time. My husband is also becoming a fan. I rate it five stars- well worth the investment.

Wonderful piece of equipment

I've used a Pilates chair for three years in class and love the versatility of the device. There's a big bang for the buck for such a small piece of equipment. It's perfect for sitting in my guest room where I beckons me visibly whenever I walk down the hallway. I am impressed by the quality of manufacture of this device. I know it's studio quality and I know it will last at least as long as I do. One reason I ordered this specific brand, BTW, is because I can adjust the spring tension very easily from the front of the machine. I also want to say that I was surprised by how fast the chair arrived and the quality of its packing materials. The chair had not the slightest dent or scratch, all items were in the box and my husband was easily able to extract the chair. No set up required, another refreshing plus.

Peak Pilates reformer

So happy with this equipment
