Body Control Pilates (BCP)

 

BCP is a world-leading education provider for Pilates teaching. 

BCP offers a comprehensive programme of exercises for both mat and machine work. They are adapted from the ‘classical’ exercises developed by Joseph Pilates. In order for someone to work safely and effectively and to gain the full benefits of Pilates, these classical exercises are broken down to establish good movement skills thus building the best possible foundation upon which to progress towards the classical, more advanced work. 

 

Central to the Method is 'awareness of your own body' and each exercise is built around eight basic principles: 

 

Relaxation

Concentration

Co-ordination

Centring

Alignment

Breathing

Stamina   

Flowing Movements


By working on 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.

 

Body awareness is heightened by bringing together mind and body - BCP teaches you to control your body, assisting in stress management and relaxation. 

 

BCP is for EVERYONE.
