To be legally allowed to work in Australia, all overseas visitors and immigrants must hold an appropriate work visa, regardless of their qualifications. Check the following government websites for further details:
Once you have your visa, Pilates is not a regulated industry in Australia so you are not required by law to be registered or licensed with a professional organisation in order to instruct.
