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 been our highest priority throughout the pandemic. This continues as we now hopefully begin to emerge from the restrictions that have caused so much disruption over the last 15 months.

Whether you are a Body Control Pilates teacher, one of our teacher training students, 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 return to normality.

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 and 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 for the remainder of 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 this way have already graduated with flying colours!

With our 25th Anniversary promotion, you can save £600 on our courses through to October 2021. This brings the fees down to £2,500. 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 and on the latest government advice. For our students, we will 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. We are very pleased that we are now able to offer you face to face teaching practice at our London Centre and with our supervising teachers across the country.

Group Classes and 1:1 sessions

Many of our members are once again offering face to face group classes indoors. These are all taking place in a Covid-secure setting and this may mean that class numbers are smaller than was the case. Most are also offering 1:1 sessions. Before coming to your first session after lockdown, your teacher will ask you to complete a short ‘Covid health check’ questionnaire.

Whilst our members have been desperate to get back to the face to face teaching of classes, whether in their own studio or in community halls, most will also continue to offer classes online via Zoom for the rest of the year and beyond. Several thousand Body Control Pilates classes are being offered each week online!

If you have already been going 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 coming out of this long, difficult period of disruption. Thank you.
