I have been working with the Pilates technique for over 32 years now. I originally worked with the technique as a dancer at the London School of Contemporary Dance. In 1982 I opened my first studio, Body Control, in connection with the newly formed Pineapple Dance Studios in Convent Garden London.
Two years later I was offered a position in Texas managing the Pilates studio at the Houston Ballet Company where I stayed until 1990. During this time sponsored by the Houston Ballet Michael traveled across the USA visiting and training at studios. In New York with Carla Trier and with Romana Kryzanowska at the original Pilates Studio in New York.
I also worked in the Voight Centre in LA for five years teaching fitness programs as as well as at many other Pilates Studios including Winsor Pilates in Los Angeles.
I moved back to Europe in 1995 where following a two year contract in Switzerland he returned to London. I was the founder and Director of the Pilates Institute UK until 2008 and has since been running my own training school under the name Michael King Pilates
My reputation as a presenter both in Fitness and Pilates has been established since 1980. My training programs are now taught in over 30 countries worldwide and I have been instrumental in the development of national and international standards in recent years.
I am now based in Punta Del Este Uruguay which I love and anyone who visits falls in love with the place. I do travel for work still and know what it means to have a good nights sleep and feel comfortable when away and I hope we can make your trip to Uruguay a great one.
