Originally developed by Joseph H. Pilates, a visionary of exercise and health in the first half of the 20th century, the Pilates Method has evolved into a full-fledged profession, offering countless career opportunities.

The Pilates Method is taught and practiced internationally through high-quality certification programs whose graduates create studios and fitness centers that thrive worldwide.

Pilates Professionals of the Netherlands (PPN) was founded in 2021 by 5 passionate professionals with a shared vision of connecting, supporting and inspiring the Pilates community.
