The Body Control Pilates ® Association was set up in 1996 with the goal of bringing the benefits of Pilates to all. Its founders, Lynne Robinson and Gordon Thomson, have been at the forefront of the boom in awareness of, and participation in, the Pilates Method. Body control Pilates ® continues to enjoy an excellent reputation with regard to the effectiveness and the quality of its teaching.
Key reasons for this are:
You are taught good movement skills step by step, which will ultimately give you the strength and flexibility you need to perform the more advanced traditional Pilates exercises. Our programme contains many exercises unique to Body Control Pilates. No other Pilates system has such a safe and progressive approach.
Quality of teaching
The Body Control Pilates® training courses focus not only on teaching the range of exercises to teachers, but also on how to teach them well. Body Control Pilates ® Instructors are renowned for their attention to detail and their ability to cater for the needs of the individual.
