Body Control Pilates offers a comprehensive programme of exercises for mat work. They are adapted from the ‘classical’ exercises developed by Joseph Pilates. In order for someone to work safely and effectively and to gain the full benefits of Pilates, the classical exercises are broken down to establish good movement skills thus building the best possible foundation upon which to progress toward the classical, more advanced work. This is the essence of the Body Control Pilates Method.

Body Control Pilates is remarkably effective – and medically-approved. It is of an holistic nature , being based upon a well-constructed philosophical foundation. Central to the Method is ‘awareness of your own body’ and each and every exercise is built around its eight basic principles:

•Relaxation         •Alignment

•Concentration   •Breathing

•Co-ordination    •Stamina

•Centring            •Flowing Movements

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.

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.

The Body Control Pilates Method can work for everyone, regardless of fitness level!

    • Hi Lucy
      I’ll be able to tell you if I have spaces in the Pilates Works class on Thursday. I’ll be back in touch then. These classes are run by Pilates Works – pass your details on. Generally a block of 6 classes costs £60 as a guide per person. We have two more weeks before we break for Easter.
