Membership

Membership with Pilates Aotearoa is the best way to demonstrate you’re operating to our industry-leading standards and ethical code of conduct.

We will be launching individual memberships in June 2024, with facility memberships coming soon.

Individual membership

During the initial phase of establishing the membership, we are not running a formal accreditation process but rather an informal approval system of certain relevant qualifications for Pilates. The aim is to create an all-inclusive Pilates community for Aotearoa before we introduce varying levels of recognition after the first 12 months of membership.

All Individual Members will be required to submit proof of their Pilates qualification or certification, and will be granted a “Provisional Individual Membership”. After 12 months, members will be asigned a level reflecting their qualifications and experience.

Facility membership

Elevate your Pilates business’s potential and reputation by aligning with industry-leading standards and ethics, and equip your business with a full set of tools to help your business and staff to succeed.

Our Facility Members will go through an informal audit process to make they are adhering to the Code of Ethics for Facilities and will use its best endeavours to have all staff (contractors and employees) registered as Pilates Aotearoa members (discounts will apply).
