What is March MATness?

March MATness is an annual awareness campaign that celebrates the traditional sequence of Pilates Mat exercises. Originally spearheaded by Benjamin Degenhardt, March MATness is a community-led event that floods the internet with love for the Pilates method every year.

Not a challenge. Not a competition.

Everybody loves a challenge, and everybody loves a competition. But, March MATness is neither of those things. Instead, it’s a “come as you are” celebration of Pilates. You can join this celebration in any way that you see fit; cheer on others, contribute to the fun, offer special classes or events locally, encourage others to join… In short: make it yours!

That said, we discourage using March MATness as an opportunity to monetize or to create challenges or contests around the hashtag.

When do I post what?

The posting schedule is the same every single year (see below). The content you want to share is uniquely yours, but if you want further inspiration, you can jump on our yearly caption theme, sponsored by 360° Pilates: in 2023, the theme is #backtobasics.
