Private Lessons

Footwork Here, Footwork There, Footwork Everywhere!
There is a reason why The Reformer repertoire starts with the Footwork. The greatness of this exercise facilitates lots of information of the body in front of us. That is why there are Footworks all over the studio! Develop a keen eye observing different skeletons through their feet and discover the variety of pieces of equipment where the Footwork can be performed.

The Girdle Of Strength
“The girdle of strength” is the term that Joe used to describe the group of muscles in charge of connecting the limbs to the middle. This muscular integration must be activated in all movements to guarantee the effectiveness and benefit of the Method. Delve into the fundamentals of a strong foundation and interpret the essential concepts required to develop a powerful center such as depth, length and alignment. These valuable principles are the key for a body to move freely in all directions.

Reform(Er) Your Practice Through Your Feet
Improve your performance on the Reformer by a correct understanding and use of your feet. Learn how to properly stabilize your foundation, lift off your hips, lengthen your spine and strengthen your middle all through your feet! Joe Pilates knew how important the toes, balls, arches and heels of the feet are to improve our posture and maximize our physical potential. That it’s why he made such a big deal about them!

Use Your Hands To Communicate
Developing sensitivity in the hands is essential to transmit to the student the goal of the exercises with greater clarity, correct movements effectively and obtain results immediately. One of the apparatus where you can best practice communication through your hands is on the Mat. In this totally practical workshop, you will learn Joe's well- known "pushes and pulls", just as he taught them to his disciples.



About Marian Tarín

Marian Tarín started practicing Pilates while she was studying Journalism at the International University of Catalonia. She was so amazed the way the Method challenged her body that, when she received her master’s degree in 2004, she decided to undertake a new way.

She has travelled to Brazil and the U.S.A. to train and learn from some of the best Classical Pilates teachers. In 2009, she received her certification from the Pilates Method Alliance. A couple of years later, she opened a studio in Barcelona; she co-owns PILATISTIC Old School Pilates (Centre Pilates Tiana). Due to her unceasing interest in improving her professional skills, she decides to study with elder Jay Grimes, in Los Angeles, California. During her apprenticeship, Marian also trains with the founders of Vintage Pilates, Sandy Shimoda and Karen Frischmann. In 2013, Marian completes The Work and a year later, Jay chooses her for the master Teaching the Work 2015-2016, a highly selective program where she continued improving her skills and developing her own style as a teacher. Marian is honored to be one of the few instructors in the world who has completed this exclusive mentorship.

In parallel, she has collaborated in all the editions of the Valencia Classical Pilates Conference. She's been the translator-assistant of international teachers such as Peter Fiasca, Lori Coleman-Brown, Chris Robinson and Dorothee Vandewalle. Presently, Marian is presenting at the Classical Pilates Conference Brazil 2017.
