Lolita San Miguel is known as one of the 'Elders' of Pilates as Joseph Pilates himself trained her. She is one of only two, herself and Cathy Grant, who were actually certified by Joseph Pilates to teach the method. Having practiced Pilates for over 50 years Lolita now runs the Pilates Master Mentor Program. She created this course to pass her wealth of knowledge to a new generation of personally chosen Pilates Instructors. Maree feels very honored to be one of the first 40 Instructors worldwide to have completed this program, and one of only two based in the UK. Lolita is a truly fascinating, inspirational person, so please click the following link to read more about her and the Master Mentor Program
