2015 PMA - China Chapter Conference

October 18, 2015 — Derrick Cope

The Pilates Method Alliance was established in 2001 and is the largest professional association and certifying agency in the world. The PMA is essentially the governing body of Pilates. They have a definition of "What is Pilates " as well as who is elligible to be a "certified" Pilates teacher.

The PMA is the not-for-profit governing body of Pilates.

Each year the PMA hosts the worlds largest Pilates conference. The conference is supported and attended by the best known Pilates instructors in the world including all the first geration Pilates instructors and most of the second generation instructors. The 2015 conference will be held in Denver.

The world's largest Pilates conference is hosted annually in November by the PMA.

Every year following the PMA Conference the PMA - China Chapter invites the best presenters to come to China for our own conference. This year we are extremely honored to welcome Dr. Suzanne Martin to China.

The PMA - China Chapter Conference follows the U.S. conference

Dr. Suzanne Martin, began her career as a dancer but after an introduction to Pilates decided to pursue an instructor certification and eventually acheived her Ph.D in physical therapy. With over 30 years of experience teaching movement, Dr. Martin's China workshop will be an opportunity not to miss.
