I really like the concept but to be really Global is a huge challenge, we already have Pilates Standards in the UK so the comment that this needs to be created in the US first before elsewhere is really not true and to be honest slightly offensive. Also in Australia , New Zealand and South Africa they already have national standards so I wish you well and hope you can work on the US situation.
You can see our standards on our organistion website https://thesocietyforthepilatesmethod.com/
Thank you so much for your comment Michael. I hope I can clarify my statement by saying that there are no LEGAL standards within the Pilates community. We are working towards putting these standards into legislation so that we are recognized by the government. There are many organizations that have created standards but they have not been put into law.
We would love to work with you in the UK. I just sent you a personal email. Look forward to hearing from you.
