The Body Control Pilates Centre

The Body Control Pilates Centre, Bloomsbury, London

A stone’s throw from the British Museum.

The Body Control Pilates Centre is one of the foremost Pilates facilities in Europe with four studios offering equipment and matwork classes and teacher training. It is very much the ‘centre of gravity’ for our amazing community of teachers and students.

Housed in a Grade 2 listed building known colloquially as ‘The Dairy’ due to its original occupants in Victorian times being the Dairy Supply Company, our Centre enjoys an excellent location on the border of Covent Garden and Bloomsbury in Little Russell Street, just a few minutes’ walk from four underground stations.

With an area in excess of 600m2, it is one of the UK’s largest dedicated Pilates facilities and, as well as the Body Control Pilates head office, it houses:

  • Two fully-equipped studios, staffed by senior Body Control Pilates teachers and housing a full range of Balanced Body studio equipment. Open on weekdays, clients may book into the studios for private tuition, studio sessions or group equipment classes
  • Two group matwork studios

In addition to its role as a teacher training centre, the Centre would normally host around 35 group matwork and equipment classes each week, both for the public and for teachers. Due to ongoing disruption caused by the pandemic, we have moved all of our public classes online, though we are now happy to report that we have restarted Wednesday matwork classes and Reformer group classes on Wednesday lunchtimes.

As classes recommence, we have reduced participant numbers by 33% against ‘pre-Covid levels’ to ensure that everyone can enjoy their classes in the safest and most comfortable environment.

The Centre offers male and female changing rooms. A private changing room is available upon request.

At weekends, the Centre is given over fully to Body Control Pilates teacher training and professional development courses and workshops for teachers.
