Something for everyone in this workout to have you taking Pilates to the next level.
Workshop 2: Defying Gravity the Pilates Way: Saturday 4 May 2 pm – 5 pm

Born in Portugal, Miguel da Silva inherited his father’s taste for physical activity. He practised many sports including handball, basketball, football, field hockey, cycling, swimming and surfing. This interest led him to the conclusion that "everyone has a different body and different needs"
During his two years in the UK, Miguel started practising Yoga and increasing his interest in the body. When back in Portugal, he began studying alternative medicine, specializing in Shiatsu. He later settled in Seville where he first experienced Pilates.
Through Pilates, he improved his surfing, practically eliminated the pain in his lower back and gave him flexibility. He met, Fabien Menegon (Romana Kryzanowska's lineage), of the Spanish School of Authentic Pilates, and when he had completed his training was invited to be part of the Spanish School of Authentic Pilates training program.
Miguel is very passionate about Pilates, a respected member of the industry and owner of The Uno Pilates Studio and master trainer.
He has been a teacher for Pilatesology, following his dream to share the work of Joe Pilates! “I wanna offer to all professional quality training to all those who wish to dedicate the Classical Pilates.”
Miguel was one of 12 selected to enter the highly regarded graduate program “The Work” at the Vintage Pilates studio under the mentorship of Jay Grimes himself.
“In Pilates we work the body as one! We don’t pull pieces apart we make the body work as one, where everything comes from your “stomach”.”
