Our Coronavirus Action Plan:

Keeping you moving; keeping you teaching;
keeping you learning


"There is no situation, there is no age and no condition where exercise is not a good thing …… In this period, in which people are in lockdown, exercise is one of the best things you can possibly do [and] I certainly want to stress the point that, wherever possible, people should be taking exercise. This is very important for long-term health."
- Chris Whitty (Chief Medical Adviser, UK Government)

Supporting our community has always been our highest priority – and never has there been a more critical time to do that.

Whether you are a Body Control Pilates teacher, a teacher training student or someone who enjoys coming to classes with one of our 1,500 teachers around the world, you are important to us. That’s why we continue to work flat out to find ways we can help you as we jointly navigate our way through lockdowns, reopenings, tiers, and more lockdowns.

The situation across the UK and other countries is now far too complicated for us to summarise here, so please check local regulations.

Become a Body Control Pilates Teacher – start online!

Never has health and fitness been such a high priority for everyone. We have been inundated with people wanting to switch career and do something where you can work flexibly and help others! We have a schedule of courses planned but have adapted how we start and progress courses. You can start your course online with our exclusive theory and anatomy videos, supplemented by live online tutorials and classes. You will be sent printed course notes in advance and we will ensure sufficient contact hours to maintain the overall course quality is maintained to the high level we are renowned for. The 13 tuition modules for all courses will remain online until at least April 2021, with four follow-on ‘Contact Days’ in London. It’s been an absolute pleasure to see that many students who started their training with us in lockdown have already graduated with flying colours!

We also have a promotion to celebrate our 25th Anniversary – you can save £600 on our courses from January to March 2021. Please contact if you would like more details or a Course Information Pack.

Body Control Pilates Members and Students

We will continue to maintain very regular contact to support your teaching business, whether this is online or ‘face to face’. We will also continue to keep you updated on our ‘Covid-secure’ guidelines. For our students, we will continue to ensure that you can maintain momentum as you work towards your goal of becoming a qualified Body Control Pilates teacher. We rapidly created new online platforms for both video content, interactive online tutorials, and classes and workshops and will continue to work seven days a week to support you through your course.

Group Classes and 1:1 sessions

Where and when allowed, many of our members will offer face to face sessions, whether in their own studio or in community halls. This is sadly not possible during the current national lockdowns but the good news is that the vast majority of Body Control Pilates teachers are now offering classes online via Zoom. Most will continue this way through the rest of the year and beyond – several thousand Body Control Pilates classes are being offered each week online!

If you already go to Body Control Pilates classes, your teacher will contact you to let you know their latest plans. If you would like to start joining our online or face to face classes (when allowed), please click here to go to our ‘Find a Teacher’ page where you can enter your postcode and find your nearest teachers. Please support your local teacher as they try to maintain their business in this long, difficult period of disruption. Thank you.
