A first generation Pilates master, who trained under Joe Pilates himself, is heading to Scotland’s largest studio to pass on her knowledge in a series of workshops.

Florida-based Lolita San Miguel – one of only two known practitioners to have been officially certified by Joseph and Clara Pilates – has more than 56 years’ Pilates experience and has released nine DVDs. Now focusing on training the next generation of Pilates instructors, Miguel has been certified by Polestar Pilates Education and was awarded a gold certificate by the Pilates Method Alliance.

Miguel is heading to Bälans Pilates – an independent Pilates Studio based in Perth, Scotland – to host a weekend of Pilates workshops from 24-26 April, with sessions for both teachers and practitioners.

“It’s an absolute honour to be working alongside such a well respected and highly regarded Pilates elder,” Bälans Pilates owner and lead instructor, Joakim Valsinger.

“I am currently attending her two-year Master Mentor Program in Florida and I am due to graduate as a Second Generation Pilates Instructor in August. This is the first time members of the public in the UK can have access to Lolita’s teachings and we’re overjoyed to present such an awesome, informative and educational event.”

The weekend itself will be split into two parts. Part one will see Miguel work with Pilates teachers from around the UK during two different workshops. ‘Lolita Shares her Mat’ – a full day instructor-training programme on Friday 24 April, while ‘Lolita Shares her Reformer’ is a half-day workshop on Saturday 25 April. Both take place at Bälans Pilates Studio and sold out within days of going on sale.

Part two will see Miguel working with members of the public. Again, there are two seminars to choose from: ‘An Audience With Lolita: The Secret to Longevity Through Pilates’ on Saturday 25 April and ‘Pilates Tea-Off at The Old Course: An afternoon with Pilates Elder, Lolita San Miguel’ on Sunday 26 April.
