Body Control Pilates
Founded by Lynne Robinson with its headquarter at central London, Body Control Pilates (BCP) is recognized as a world-leading training provider, who helped to formulate the content of the UK national standard and chaired the group that created a European Union standard of Pilates. BCP is regarded as a symbol of excellence in the Pilates field and their mission is to bring the benefits of Pilates to everyone.
For more than 20 years, BCP has been the leader and at the forefront of the international growth in Pilates. The trademark of BCP is widely seen as a benchmark for safe and effective teaching of the highest quality. It is Europe’s largest professional Pilates organization with well over 1,400 teaching members and teachers working in more than 42 countries.
BCP launched the world’s first curriculum-based matwork teacher training course in 1996. Then they became the first specialist training provider to gain recognition against the UK government-backed national standard for Pilates (known as ‘Level 3’) in 2005.
In early 2010, BCP became the first Pilates training provider to receive approval for a Low Back Pain course accredited against the new Level 4 Standard. Meanwhile in 2013, they received Ofqual approval to become the only accredited 'Level 4 Pilates' training provider in the UK.
In 2018, BCP launched its comprehensive online school “Body Control Pilates Central” sharing their knowledge globally with a list of masterclasses and workouts for everyone. It is highly recommended to those who would like to secure a good Pilates foundation, learn Pilates in depth or become a Pilates instructor.
All of the BCP certified teachers have, at a minimum, completed a comprehensive training course in Body Control Pilates matwork (Level 3) and are committed to continue delivering excellence in Pilates by following a Code of Practice governing teaching standards, professional ethics and continuing education. With unrivalled skills, knowledge and integrity, all BCP teachers share the same vision and is dedicated to passing on their skills through an effective, safe and challenging method.
