In 2003, as a founding member of the Spanish association of teachers of the Pilates Method, he decided to open “Centre Pilates Barcelona” in the heart of the city. Since then, he has taught more than 50,000 classes to individuals ranging from high-level athletes to people with various pathologies making him one of the most experienced and sought-after professors in the sector.
In 2004, Fabien founded the EEDAP (Escuela Española De Autentico Pilates/Spanish School of Authentic Pilates) offering certification courses for future professionals in the Authentic Method. Hundreds of professionals from around the globe have been certified at his school with locations that now extend beyond Barcelona and include Seville, Vigo and Oporto (Portugal).
Under the direction of Fabien Menegon, the school offers seminars aimed to help professionals on topics such as “Pilates and Scoliosis”, “Pilates and Pregnancy”, and “Pilates and Respiratory System” as well as participating in international conventions in Europe and South America. In 2016, he co-founded “Uno Pilates Method” and started recording videos in English, French, and Spanish on the acclaimed website, “Pilatesology”, an effort that continues still today.
Most recently, Fabien began producing webisodes designed to aide professionals in their practice. These “Tips Videos” can be viewed on EEDAP’s YouTube Channel and on Instagram at no charge.
