I’m Miguel, teacher and owner of Birmingham Pilates. I imagine you’re here because you want changes. We help people create change and have FUN!

We do One on One workouts that progress you to semi independent Group Classes or your own independent Personal Pilates Practice

Pilates is actually really easy to understand – don’t listen to people telling you it’s complicated – it’s not. But it IS super challenging.

What about the benefits of doing Pilates? Most of what people say about the benefits is true. If you want to experience the full benefits of Pilates  you need to experience the real thing – Classical Pilates.

Is Pilates for you?

Pilates is for everyBODY and everyone.

But maybe it’s NOT for you …

– If you like the status quo.
– If you don’t like self improvement.
– If you don’t want to have fun!
– If you don’t have ANY balance or coordination challenges.
– If you love your body just the way it is, and leaner and firmer are simply non issues.
– If you are already strong and flexible and don’t want anymore strength or flexibility.
– If your body is equally developed on the front, sides and back, above and below the waist.
– If you have no room for improvement, you move with ease, and have no aches, pains or stiffness.
– If…..you are under 12 years old 😃.

I love a good quote!

What IS Pilates? Why is it so confusing?

By a strange twist of fate, the name Pilates is now 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 as well, are confused. There are so many Pilates based and Plates inspired variations that bear no resemblance to each other, yet they all claim the name. This does not mean that they are all bad, Quite the contrary, some of them are extremely good and much needed. But they are not the exercise method created by Joseph Pilates.

... Contrology* is not "medicine" or even "physical therapy" . For it's aim is not specifically corrective but generally body building and co-ordinating. Hence it's uses are neither "patients" nor "treated". Each STUDENT is given as nearly as possible the same regimen and in kinds and amounts equal to his or her requirements under careful supervision. And only if approved by his or her family physician.

*Contrology is the name Joe Pilates gave to his exercise system. It never caught on in his time and it’s unlikel;y to any time soon. Nore’s the piuty – it’s a perfect name for the Method.
