Born in the city of Porto, Portugal, Miguel Silva inherited from an early age his father’s taste for physical activity.
While pursuing his outdoor sports, Miguel also experienced indoor activities which included Bodypump, Bodycombat, Balancedbody, Step Aerobics, and gym.
During his two years in the UK, Miguel started the practice of Yoga, increasing his interests in the body with an entirely different concept from his regular fitness regime.
When back in Portugal (where he first experienced the Pilates Method), Miguel began his studies in Alternative Medicine, specializing in Shiatsu, Japanese massage technique, then later settled in Seville, Spain, perfecting the technique.
Through the practice of Pilates, he has improved his surfing and practically eliminated the consistent pain in his lower back.
He then met the School of Authentic Pilates (Romana Kryzanowska's lineage) and successfully completed his training with flying colours. Following this, he was invited him to be part of the Authentic Pilates training program and help to expand the brand.
Miguel is very passionate about Pilates, a respected member of the industry, owner of The Uno Pilates Studio - teaching director and master trainer.
