With all the confusion surrounding "Pilates"or "Classical Pilates"(both generic terms) 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 contemporary excercises not based on the ideas and concepts of Joseph Pilates work, and 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 and are Pilates Guild® certified have completed this unique kind of rigorous, hands-on training program that Joseph Pilates deemed necessary to teach his method properly.
