Reza Alavi


Founder & Managing Director

Reza spent 10 years in the corporate world, working with multinational companies, and developing a career that many would envy, but in early 2008 he gave it all up to answer his inner calling and dream of helping others. Reza realised it was the right time to lean on his culture and personal background, languages, travel experiences, skills and aspirations to create something special. And so was born Real Pilates, a mind and body haven where, with the help of Reza and his team of certified instructors, you can de-stress, restore, reconnect and grow. Reza is excited about helping people transform the relationship they have with their mind and body, and believes the richest life is that of those who enrich other people's lives. This is only the beginning of a promising journey, as Reza’s ambition is to explore other aspects of the world of wellness and continuously find new ways of helping others connect with their best inner self.
