About the Pilates Foundation

The Pilates Foundation was Pilates Foundationfounded in 1996 and is the UK’s first Pilates Teachers’ Association. The Foundation is dedicated to maintaining excellence in the practice and teaching of Pilates.

The Foundation promotes the original works of Joseph and Clara Pilates, including honouring the original repertoire and principles, yet brings current knowledge and research to the teaching of the Pilates Method.

Pilates Foundation Teachers undergo extensive training and pass a rigorous examination process to gain membership into the organisation and they must keep their knowledge, skills and teaching current by undertaking regular training courses and workshops each year.
