About Body Control Pilates

Body Control Pilates is very closely based upon the method of body-conditioning and training developed by the late Joseph Pilates. It is an exercise method which relies on strengthening core postural muscles and developing body alignment. It avoids the muscle and ligament damage, sometimes associated with other fitness regimes.

What makes Body Control Pilates different ? Body Control Pilates is remarkably effective and every exercise is built around its eight basic principles.

By working in 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. Who is it for? Anyone wishing to improve their total fitness, posture and appearance. Further Information about Pilates Body Control can be found at the Body Control Pilates Association
