With all the hype surrounding Authentic Pilates™ today, it can be confusing to locate a reputable
source. Many people have jumped on the bandwagon, with various
degrees of training ranging from one week-end to just a few
months. Although some may be talented teachers, many teach
excercises based on ideas and concepts of Joseph Pilates work,
which may be combined with elements from other techniques
or methods of exercise. These changes fundamentally alter
the nature of the exercises, so that they may resemble Authentic
Pilates™, but are really something very different. Others
may teach only floor or "mat" exercises. Only instructors
who are certified and licensed by The New York Pilates Studio™ Teacher Certification program have
completed the kind of rigorous, hands-on training program
that Joseph Pilates deemed necessary to teach his method properly.
