Body Control Pilates Method

What makes Body Control Pilates different? 

The Body Control Pilates Method can work for everyone and the exercises are particularly safe for those with back problems. Its consistent success rate in solving such problems has brought it to the attention of osteopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists and homeopathic doctors, many of whom have either set up Pilates studios as part of their practices or established a close working partnership with their local Body Control Pilates teachers.

Safe and Effective

The essence of the Body Control Pilates Method is the adaption of the 'classical' exercises developed by Joseph Pilates to make them suitable for all fitness levels. We first ensure good movement skills are established before progressing towards the more advanced work in a safe and effective way.  

Core Stability

By working on the deep architectural structure of the body, ‘core stability’ is achieved, and then maintained, through increasingly complex movement sequences. Specific problem-areas can be targeted by an exercise, but always in relation to the rest of one’s body.

Awareness of your body

Central to the Method is ‘awareness of your own body’ and each and every exercise is built around its eight basic principles: 

Relaxation, Concentration, Co-ordination, Centring, Alignment, Breathing, Stamina and Flowing Movements.

Mind Body Connection

Your body awareness is heightened by bringing together mind and body – Body Control Pilates literally teaches you to be in control of your body, allowing you to handle stress more effectively and achieve relaxation more easily.
