The Pilates Guild™

Since 1990 The Pilates Guild™ has been an international organization dedicated to the preservation of Authentic Pilates passed on to The New York Pilates Studio in 1967 After Joseph Pilates Death. With the most comprehensive archival documentation available, the Guild and The New York Pilates Studio seek to maintain Pilates in its purest form by:

  • Serving as an umbrella of protection for all Pilates Guild™ certified teachers and members
  • Providing support in areas of education, counsel and public promotion
  • Educating the public and fostering consciousness through movement
  • Upholding the philosophy and principles set forth by Joseph and Clara Pilates
The purpose of the Pilates Guild™ is to maintain a recognizable foundation for licensed, Certified Instructors and an international network whose collective work is consistent and of the highest quality. The Guild provides toll-free referral services for Certified Instructors and studios, insurance for individual instructors, discounts on merchandise and equipment, educational materials and marketing support and access to Pilates, Inc. archives.

A Certified Instructor's membership in the Pilates Guild™ is maintained by yearly payment of dues, fulfilling continuing education requirements, adhering to the Code of Ethics, Standards of Practice and a signed membership agreement.

The New York Pilates Studio is in a unique position to transmit the teachings of Joseph Pilates through our teacher certification program. Because the Pilates Guild&trademarks links its trademarks with its Standards of Practice, Code of Ethics, and quality control, the public can be sure that their Certified Instructor meets these standards.
