Body Control Pilates is an effective, medically-approved method of body conditioning. It is a gentle system of stretching and strengthening exercises which unites body and mind.
8 key principles form the foundation of all Body Control Pilates exercises:

  • Relaxation
  • Breathing
  • Concentration
  • Alignment
  • Flowing movements
  • Co-ordination
  • Centring

Targeting the deep core structures of your body, Pilates exercises strengthen from the “inside out”.
Core stability is achieved and maintained progressively in relation to the body as a whole. Body Control Pilates’ slow controlled approach means it provides lasting, long-term results.
