What is the PMA?
PMA is the Pilates Method Alliance. Founded in 2001, the Pilates Method Alliance is the not for profit professional association and certifying agency for Pilates teachers. For over a decade, Pilates teachers from around the world have worked together to create a unified community, to share knowledge and information, and most importantly, to establish the practice of teaching Pilates as a profession.
SELA is the 1st PMA Chapter in the world, we currently serve Pilates professionals living in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama, until such point in time that other local chapters are formed. We exist to foster professional growth in the growing ranks of Pilates practitioners by offering quality continuing education programs on a local level. Valuing the networking opportunities these workshops and seminars provide, we are proud to be able to offer them at an affordable price…right in our own backyard! Future workshops will include round table discussions on issues and matters related to Pilates as an industry, particularly the process involved in PMA certification. As a local Chapter, we provide a readily available mechanism for regional project development. Through our programming, we are able to direct more people to the PMA, encouraging their membership in the parent organization, as well as in the SELA Chapter.
