Monthly Member-Only Masterclasses
A new PAA Community project! The monthly Masterclasses. We started this program in March 2022 to bring our members together on a monthly basis to share a workout and learn a few tricks of the trade at the same time. This PAA community-based initiative values inclusivity, encouragement, movement and fun. It promotes all Pilates approaches and it is a great way for instructors to set time for themselves to move under the guidance of a colleague and at an affordable cost.
This is an online Masterclass. Attendees receive 1PDP and your ticket includes 7 days of access to the workshop recording.
Watch your inbox! Tickets exclusively by email invite!
