Pilates on Mat & Reformer

The "Connections Workshops"

Reformer Pilates & Mat Pilates Workshops in Birmingham

For anyone: from first timers to experts*
Save money and turbocharge your Personal Pilates Practice.
Very limited places, super inexpensive four hour Pilates workshops!

Mat & Reformer Pilates workshops are for First Timers, Beginners, Seasoned Pilates Veterans and even teachers! 

In these these practical workshops you will learn the Mat and the Reformer repertoire of exercises and the threads that link the apparatus, the Learning Order of Exercises, the Exercise Families and the Practice Order all together. It sounds complex, but it’s a system and very easy to understand once you’ve seen the links.

As well as understanding how the workout unfolds, the Reformer “Around the Studio” Workshop takes the traditional Reformer exercises onto the other studio apparatus to build up to the “core” exercise and/or to further challenge us.

The “Mat Demystified” follow different threads within the Pilates System. Each traditional Mat exercise from J. Pilates’ “Return to Life” is introduced in a logical order that builds up on the skills, strength, mobility and control learned in previous exercises. The “essence” of each exercise is easily understood through the “Exercise Families” that also help us with the “Learning Order”. Finally, we put all the exercises together in their proper “Practice Order”.

What do people say?

Very original and unique. I haven't seen anyone else offering something like this. It adheres to The Method and its brilliance!

I wanted to learn what Pilates is about so I booked the workshop with Miguel. It was so worth it! I got what I was hoping for and even more. Miguel teaches by doing instead of just explanations - it's completely practical! Furthermore the studio is really nicely set up and filled with positive vibes 🙂 Highly recommended!

    I’ve always heard about Pilates, but I could not understand the real benefits until I had my first lessons with Miguel. His knowledge is incredible and he really … read more knows how to explain you to understands the movements and the mindset. I’ve learned it’s much more than exercise or posture improvement. I feel more energised for work, for more exercises and much less headache, because it was caused from muscle neck pain. In few weeks, I already feel more fit. And the best part, the knowledge Miguel shares about Pilates is for life! I can only say thank you very much!

    Miguel has not only been a trainer for me, but also a great mentor. I had my very first lesson of Pilates with him and it exceeded all my expectations by far. I … read more have learnt from Miguel that Pilates is working on your body and mindset at the same time. After just 5 sessions, I can confidently say I can do Pilates on my own, which is the end goal and this is only due to Miguel’s way of teaching. Another important thing that I understood from him is that small progress is still progress and I should appreciate that, but also try to do better each time. Miguel is very welcoming, patient, supportive and always available for help even when you leave the studio. He will adjust the Pilates exercises and apparatus accordingly for each individual, as all bodies work differently (another thing that I’ve learnt from him), while sticking to the basics and essence of Pilates. Miguel also gives you exercises to do at home and provides videos, in which he explains thoroughly all the movements so you can take home and practice all you’ve learnt in the studio. The studio itself is extremely clean and taken care of and has everything you need for your lesson. It is also positioned in a very good area that anyone can easily reach.

    I went to Birmingham Pilates studio with an ongoing back problem brought about by scoliosis. The detailed and thorough exercises and the care and attention led to … read more a dramatic improvement in my posture, wellbeing and strength. The studios are welcoming, friendly and the sessions are huge fun as well as being beneficial to health and wellbeing. Miguel is passionate about Pilates in its pure form, and so the sessions are also educational, and encouraged me to think about my posture and adjusting my movements to strengthen my body and my breath. I would strongly recommend Birmingham Pilates Studio.
