Miguel Bengoa: Studio Owner & Teacher

Hi there!

I’m Miguel, Pilates teacher and studio owner.  I’m glad you’re here! 

You might find that you need to forget everything you’ve ever learned about exercise and possibly if you’ve done “Pilates” before!

You are about to enter a whole different world with its own language and way of approaching exercise. 

Pilates “Proper” is a system of interconnected exercises & concepts that build onto each other.

The Foundations, whether on Reformer or Mat, can be found in every exercise on every piece of apparatus and at every level. It’s like a spider’s web of interconnections.

You won’t stay doing the same exercises for ever, but instead, you’ll build a progressing Pilates practice that can keep you interested for a lifetime.

In the studio, you’ll work on Reformer (and other Pilates apparatus) AND we’ll teach you the Matwork to practice at home – this is where you get unbeatable value for money!

Is Pilates for you?

Pilates is for everybody with a body!

Pilates, done properly, does much more than just fix poor posture. It’s quite literally “body-building and coordinating” but from the inside out. Pilates is all about the spine because everything is attached to it.

Muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia are stretched and strengthened. Pilates stimulates the flow of the blood and lymphatic systems, lax joints are tightened and tight joints are loosened.

Pilates strengthens you where you are weak and challenges you where you are strong.

Even the central nervous system changes as it rewires itself adapting itself to these changes. 

Pilates aka “Contrology”, is designed to totally and completely rejuvenate.

Why are there are so many different types of Pilates?

“By a strange twist of fate, the name Pilates is in the public domain as a generic term. You can stand on a rock twirling a hula hoop and call it Pilates. And some do!”

“There are so many versions of Pilates that not only the general public but the medical profession is confused!”

“There are so many Pilates based and Pilates inspired variations that bear no resemblance to one another, yet they all claim the name.”

“This does not mean that they are all bad. On the contrary, some of them are extremely good and much needed.”

“But they are not the exercise method created by Joseph Pilates.”

— Jay Grimes in “The Red Thread of Pilates” by Kathy Ross Nash
