Choosing a Pilates instructor/studio is a very important decision. You must look for a studio with instructors who have the appropriate education, knowledge and experience, who stay current with the ongoing research in the field and finally, who embody the work.
 
The Pilates Method Alliance recommends:
 
The following are general guidelines, questions, and information you can use to help search for a qualified Pilates teacher:
 
1.Are the instructors trained through a comprehensive training program?
2.Did that training program require a written and practical test, lecture, observation, practice and apprentice hours?
3.How many total hours were spent in the training program? (The Pilates Method is a knowledge based method of
   exercise and training. Time spent in certification training produces qualified teachers.) 
4.Does the instructor have any other movement related teaching experience?
5. How long have the instructors been teaching Pilates? 
6.What is the instructor's/ studio's philosophy and specialty? Are they able to handle special needs, injuries and rehabilitation?
7.Does the instructor or studio teach the full repertoire of Pilates on all pieces of apparatus?”
