I am familiar with NCCA accreditation with respect to group-ex and personal training certifications. However, I’m not familiar with the pilates segment of the fitness industry. If you’re a pilates instructor, can you please tell me how important PMA accreditation is to you and to your ability to get work?
For the first time, a few weeks ago, I met a pilates instructor who openly scorned my education to my face.
Although training directly with Moira is something to be proud of, there are many ways to learn, both within the realm of pilates and without. Personal training, yoga, MELT, and the study of general anatomy can all contribute to base knowledge that makes me a good instructor.
