Conscious Control Pilates is a series of mat classes designed to unlock your full potential. It emphasises the importance of learning, understanding and applying sound technique while progressing through a range of moves designed to develop core strength and enhance body awareness. Its detailed, carefully considered progression through six levels, starting with Foundation Essentials, makes Conscious Control Pilates ideal for professional dancers who want to maintain a high level of conditioning and technical excellence, but is also recommended for anyone who is committed to their wellbeing.

“I have been involved in Pilates for more than 20 years and over this period I’ve seen it grow in popularity and development to become one of the most established training and exercise approaches in the world. Countless people at all levels of physical fitness and ability are discovering the benefits of good Pilates training – not just dancers. I’m truly passionate about this and I believe that the body awareness and control that correct Pilates helps you to develop can provide an essential foundation for any other physical activity you want to master or simply enjoy.
My love for both dance and Pilates has provided me with an outlook and satisfaction, where some 20 years on I am delighted to still be teaching both in person and through the Conscious Control series. Anyone wishing to understand Pilates in depth, safely develop strength and flexibility, or receive the same training as a dancer will love Conscious Control Pilates.”
