Matwork Teacher Training UK

Training with Body Control Pilates gives you the best possible start to building a successful Pilates teaching career. Our course is more accessible than ever as the initial 13 tuition modules are delivered online on Zoom through live tutorials with our tutors.

Things have changed a lot in the 28 years since Body Control Pilates was set up. Almost nobody had heard of Pilates then as it was the preserve of a very small number of exclusive studios. We were only the second company to offer teacher training in the UK and the first in the world to develop and deliver a curriculum-based training course – now the norm for every other training provider.

One thing hasn’t changed though – our mission from Day 1 was to make the benefits of Pilates accessible to everyone, regardless of location, age, fitness level, and affordable for everyone through the development of group matwork classes. Exactly the same still applies today.

Training with us with means that you will have the knowledge and skills to work with a broad range of clients; that you will have a repertoire of well over 100 mat exercises to draw on (most other training providers just teach you the original 34 ‘classical’ exercises which are too advanced for the average client); and, through our unique ‘supervised teaching’ process, that you will be absolutely ready to teach the day after you qualify.

And when you do qualify, you have the assurance of knowing that you are recognised against the UK’s new Pilates standard (drawn up by The Society for the Pilates Method). You will also hold one of the most internationally recognised qualifications.

You should find everything you need to know on this website, but please feel free to give us a call on 020 7636 8900 as we’re happy to answer your questions.

We have a comprehensive Course Information Pack (click to download) – and, if you’re within striking distance of our Centre in Bloomsbury, London, please feel free to get in touch and arrange to come in to have a look around and have a chat with us. We’re easy to find – just a stone’s throw from the British Museum so you can discuss Pilates teacher training and visit the Rosetta Stone in one trip!

Failing all of that, Ella, our Education Manager, will always be happy to hear from you by email to
