Plaque to be presented

An international 'master' is leading a weekend of Pilates workshops in the Island from today (Saturday).

Michael King has been studying the technique for four decades and has trained a number of the Island's instructors.

His visit coincides with the 49th anniversary of the death of German pioneer Joseph Pilates, who was interned at Knockaloe during World War One.

Later today a plaque will be presented to the Knockaloe Visitors Centre in memory of the discipline's namesake.

Michael says he's looking forward to a packed weekend at Zoe's Yoga and Pilates Studio in Braddan:
