Body Control Pilates
Body Control Pilates is a comprehensive programme of over 100 exercises adapted to matwork from the ‘classical’ exercises developed by Joseph Pilates. These exercises establish good movement skills, building a good foundation to progress from, and are suitable for all fitness levels. Clients find their mobility improves and is maintained, as well as having improved body awareness, postural alignment, flexibility and balance. The Body Control exercise repertoire is based on the 8 basic principles:
- Flowing movements
By working on the deep architectural structure of the body ‘core stability’ is achieved and then maintained through increasingly complex movement structures.
Body Control Pilates member teachers are fully insured to teach up to 12 clients per class and are required to continue professional development to maintain membership.
Their training combines theory, anatomy and principles of fitness study and supervised teaching hours to qualify for the minimum Level 3 Matwork certificate.
