The PMA supports ongoing research as an integral part of the evolution and practice of the Pilates method.

Research Pilates

Sound research and evidence-based practice is necessary to ensure that Pilates is effective, efficient, and safe. Validation of the Method is not only important to practitioners, but also to clients/patients and to all other professionals participating in health and wellness.

The PMA encourages Pilates teachers to get involved with conducting research and submitting reports on their findings by creating Case Reports which can be shared with the community.
