The Absolute Pilates Scholarship Program is part of our Give Back Initiative and overall mission that Pilates is for Everyone. It serves our effort for an inclusive Pilates community that allow the teachings, practice, and benefits of Pilates to be accessible to for everyone across socioeconomic and demographic groups.
These scholarships are meant to encourage individuals who are passionate about delving into their practice, benefiting from moving better, feeling better, or simply turning around their lives in a positive way.
You need not be an expert Pilates or even have done Pilates before, the only thing needed is a passion to participate and a motivation to utilize the tools and techniques of Pilates to benefit your life. We look forward to finding candidates who are interested in being a part of the vibrant, growing community at Absolute Pilates!
