All of our teachers have qualified with the Body Control Pilates Association (BCPA).


Body Control Pilates is widely seen as a benchmark for safe and effective teaching of the highest quality and is Europe's largest professional Pilates organisation. All teachers who have qualified with BCPA have successfully completed an intensive course, culminating in both anatomy and theory exams, and over fifty hours of supervised teaching. All teachers hold valid insurance and CPR certification and work to a laid-down Code of Practice governing teaching standards, professional ethics and continuing professional education. This ensures that teachers continue to build their skills and knowledge on a regular basis.


The UK is the first country in the world to have a national standard governing the teaching of Pilates matwork. It is endorsed by SkillsActive and the Register of Exercise Professionals and is recognised by the European Health and Fitness Association. All BCPA teachers are automatically recognised as meeting the national standard (Level 3 Pilates Teacher).


If you would like more information about Body Control Pilates® and its teachers please go to their website, www.bodycontrol.co.uk, or ask at The Studio for an explanatory brochure.
