The Pilates Guild®
Since 1990 The Pilates Guild® has been an international
organization dedicated to the preservation of Authentic Pilates™ passed
on and continued through the New York Pilates Studio® and the The New York Pilates Studio® Teacher Certification program . Under the direction of Sean Gallagher, PT and with the most comprehensive archival documentation available,
Mr. Gallagher seeks to maintain Authentic Pilates in its purest form by:
- Licensing the New York Pilates Teacher Certtification Program to the USPA
- Serving as an umbrella for all USPA and Guild certified teachers
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.
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®, The USPA and The Pilates Guild® are in a unique position to transmit the
teachings of Joseph Pilates through our teacher certification program.
Because the Pilates Guild® 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.
