Classical Pilates Masterclass Workshops 2023

On Full Pilates Apparatus

Pilates is more than “moves”.  It’s working from your center to find length through energy moving in opposition. 

Those are the layers that add depth to the exercises. And it’s that depth that determines your level – not the exercise itself.

Four hour Pilates workshops / masterclasses!
For anyone: from first timers* to experts
Maximum 4 participants
Amber on Wunda Chair

What will we be doing?

You'll come away with the "how tos" - that's the "creating length" bit AND the workouts

1. Exploring the physical "connections" in Pilates

Each workshop is totally practical on all the Pilates’ Apparatus.

Using the apparatus, we begin with a practical exploration of the unique set of physical connections that help to build strength, stretch, control and stability in the body:

  • The Powerhouse & Box
  • The Two Way Stretch to find opposition so we can create space and length in the body.

These connections are the foundation of every single Pilates exercise.

2. Exploring the connections between the apparatus

The Pilates apparatus is all interconnected and interrelated.

The primary apparatus is the Mat & the Reformer. The other apparatus is there to either challenge us further or build up to an exercise that is inaccessible.

The Starter level has well over 100 exercises. so, we’ve divided it up into two sessions:

  • Starters 1a: Mat, Cadillac, Ladder Barrel & Endings
  • Starters 1b: Reformer, Chair, Spine Corrector & Endings.

- What IS the Pilates Apparatus?

We’ll be exploring the Pilates Method on:

  • Mat
  • Reformer
  • Cadillac (Trapeze Table)
  • Wunda Chair
  • The Barrels
  • The Baby Arm Chair
  • The Wall
The smaller apparatus like Neck Stretcher, Foot Corrector, Toe Gizmo, Breath a Cizer, Sandbag or Magic Circle.

Reformer Pilates Workshop

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!

You won't find a more informed teacher or a more informative workshop - there's no theory - 100% take home!

    This Pilates studio in Zellig is just amazing. Brilliant trainers who can offer a bespoke approach. A special shoutout to Olga. She is a gem. She clearly demonstrated … read more how to perform the moves and corrected me if I did wrong. I leave sessions feeling empowered. My body and soul benefit so much from these sessions. Highly recommended.

    As a Pilates beginner I went into my one to one Pilates sessions quite hesitant, however Miguel and Olga made myself feel at ease, and confident enough to challenge … read more myself, without overdoing it. After only a few sessions, I noticed how much more aware I was of my posture, my balance, my alignment, and felt my physical strength gain week after week.
    Both Miguel and Olga take a very supportive and thorough approach, with my progress being their top priority. I would highly recommend Birmingham Pilates Studio!

    Yesterday was my second visit to see Miguel at the Birmingham Pilate Studio. I believe in first impressions, and my second visit only verified my first.
    The studio
    … read more is a safe, calm and relaxing environment allowing its users to feel comfortable in their surrounds. The studio is fitted with equipment throughout, allowing users to add a number of variations to their Pilates routine, whether this be to add an extra level of complexity, or, to make the movement easier.
    Miguel equally radiates an aura of calmness. His dedication to the true original ethos of Pilates, is without question, and he prides himself on his unwavering commitment.
    During my sessions, Miguel has been able to breakdown my areas of weakness (a rather un-supple back), and tailored my sessions around this, whilst ensuring I stayed true to the whole routine.
    I also had a brief opportunity to meet Olga, the newest member of the team. Although brief, I can see they she also has a passion to rival that of Miguel, and I believe they will make a great partnership of the studio.
    I look forward to my return visits, and urge everyone to check out this amazing place.
