Fiche professeur

José Maria Alves

After more than 22 years of a career as a high-level dancer in the world’s most famous ballets. I taught contemporary dance and directed classes and workshops around Europe.
Always concerned with the well-being, when I noticing the qualities and benefits of the Pilates method, I decided to take a genuine Pilates training course in New York.

Since 2009, I run the Pure Pilates Center in Aix-en-Provence, France.
As a creative person and very committed to provide well-being to everyone around me and constantly researching the different types and qualities of movements for well-being, I created Lighting-up.
Fruit of the collective reflections about the body, Lighting-up is a multidisciplinary platform that propose the exercises to prevent, maintain and improve fitness and well-being.
