Establishing Standards For Pilates Schools

Raising the bar​

The Pilates School Approval Program (PSAP) is a program developed by the Pilates Method Alliance to recognize schools that have gone through a rigorous process to show their compliance with Educational Standards. It is also a tool for students to find institutions offering comprehensive teacher training programs.


To become PSAP approved, schools must complete an online application in English. 

PSAP Mission Statement:

The mission of the PSAP is to develop professional standards in Pilates education and to assist in the further improvement of schools and their program, following established vocational education norms. 

Key activities:

  • To award approval to those schools that have provided evidence that they meet the 10 Educational Standards, established with the support of industry leaders

  • To support the interests of Pilates education through the development of Standards
