Hello! I am Miguel Bengoa. Pilates has changed my life! And when I say Pilates, I don’t mean a collection of random exercises, but a complete system designed to challenge you and change how you look and move. It will change how you see yourself and how others see you!
The Classical Matwork series takes just 30 minutes to complete (just 20 mins if you really push it). That’s a complete workout (from head to toes) that you can own and do everyday for the rest of your life. It’s hard and it will challenge you – but that’s how we change our lives: through challenges! The equipment is important too: it helps you learn the Matwork.
Since apprenticeship with Master Trainer Taha Erpulat (Director Body Arts Pilates Studios), I collaborate with some of the greatest teachers in the world. Read more →
— completed 500 hours of teacher training with Balanced Body® (California, USA)

If you are a Comprehensively Trained teacher (Balanced Body, Polestar, STOTT, BASI etc) or even if you just know the Matwork and are dead keen to broaden and deepen your knowledge, we’d love to hear from you!
Experience and qualifications is secondary to a willingness to learn new things and, above all, develop your own personal practice – something that we feel is consistently left out of the equation!
