We ask from you a commitment to learn and to become an excellent Pilates teacher. We will give you the comprehensive knowledge and training that provides you with a sound foundation, both for this course and for your future career as a qualified Body Control Pilates teacher. Each course has a Student Mentor to advise and help students when needed and our office team at the Body Control Pilates Centre in London also ensure that students enjoy unrivalled support throughout their training.


Body Control Pilates is regularly featured in the UK and international media, thereby generating a high level of enquiries via our website and our main Centre in London's Bloomsbury. In a recent survey of Body Control Pilates teachers, 75% stated that they do not advertise, as their classes were full as a result of referrals and word of mouth. As a qualified Body Control Pilates teacher you will also have access to a wide variety of development workshops and courses, including:

- more than 30 courses covering equipment, special populations, use of accessories, advanced matwork, Level 4 Low Back Pain and more

- more than 100 workshops a year led by guest presenters and senior Body Control Pilates tutors

- our annual 'Development Weekend' conference with over 35 lectures and workshops given by leading UK and international presenters, and by senior Body Control Pilates teachers.With the UK Pilates industry having implemented a government-backed national standard in Pilates in order to set the minimum knowledge requirements to become a Pilates teacher, the development programme offered by Body Control Pilates, combined with our consistent media coverage, ensures that all Body Control Pilates teachers have a unique competitive advantage.
