Conscious Control Pilates is Live! Posted in: Pilates Technique – Tags: ,

I feel like I’ve been holding my breath for nearly 2 years, but now that my website is complete and everything is in place, ready and operating, I can finally exhale a big sigh of relief.

Conscious Control Pilates is live!!

This journey began many years ago when the beautiful dancers of the Australian Ballet Company, whom I’ve been teaching now for 11 years, asked me if I could record my classes. They wanted a recording to take with them when they were not in Sydney, where I am based.

I made several amateur attempts, filming classes on my JVC camcorder, but never felt happy with the result because I wanted to do this well for them. I felt uneasy, as they just did not meet my standards.

Then my dear friend and colleague, Luke Rickards said,  “Darren, with the many years of experience you have gained teaching these elite dancers of Australia, have you considered filming a series of Pilates classes for a greater market and that will preserve your years of work?” In fact I had filmed this before, but I decided to do this properly.

Luke at the time was helping me set up my tzone website for my work in Face Rejuvenation Acupuncture. He is also part of the collaborative process for the amazing and websites.

The Artistic Directors and Management of the Australian Ballet Company and Sydney Dance Company kindly gave me permission to employ the dancers you see in ConsciousControl Pilates and Ballet and filming took place on May 8th and 9th 2011.

Little did I know how long the road to completion would take, and how many people I would need to involve! Editors, editing authors, designers, manufacturers, musicians, lawyers and the endless support of friends… the list goes on. It hasn’t all been smooth sailing, but my eye was always on the quality and so 2 years later, I can proudly offer you a course in Pilates.

I am delighted to share with you the ConsciousControl Pilates and Ballet series, in both DVD and Streaming release.

Thank you for choosing to be a part of it and I look forward to sharing with you all my thoughts and experiences as well as the teachings and insights of many experts and artists that I am regularly in contact with in our journey together.

…. and stay tuned for ConsciousControl Ballet – coming very soon.

Ahhhhhh !!!

Love Darren
