  • Mindful Movement Asia Pilates in Makati: The Only Pure Stott Pilates and Rehab Studio in the Philippines
  • Pilates is an intelligent exercise tailored for everyone. It teaches you how to relate the exercise with the mind and is designed to bring back your body to where it’s supposed to be — neutral. 

    Here in Mindful Movement Asia Pilates Studio, Pilates means doing what is right: not too much, not too little.

    Situated along the busy streets of Sen. Gil Puyat, inside Pacific Star Building, is Mindful Movement Asia Pilates Studio, formerly known as the Vivian Zapanta Pilates Studio. Mindful Movement Asia Pilates Studio is the only pure Stott Pilates Studio and Pilates Rehab Studio in the country. On the other hand, Vivian Zapanta Pilates Studio is known to be the first licensed training center in Asia.

    The licensed training center is named after Asia’s first Merrithew Stott Pilates Lead Instructor Trainer, Ms. Vivian Zapanta. She won the Miss Philippines title in bodybuilding in 1988 and was the First Gold Certified Personal Trainer for American Council on Exercise. She is also Franklin Method Educator Level 1.

    Ms. Vivian Zapanta is an instructor-trainer and is definitely hands-on when it comes to training her students. Aside from her exemplary passion for the craft, Mindful Movement Asia Pilates Studio takes pride with their instructors being trained as rehab pilates instructors who specialize in knee replacement, scoliosis, hip replacement, and all kinds of injuries.

    The best part here is, trainers are not just trainers, they are Physical Therapist. They will carefully assess the person first and evaluate whether they can join group classes or have a private one-on-one class.
