I am an Intermediate Body Control Pilates Instructor. I trained in London with Body Control Pilates@ and qualified in July 2004. I am a member of the Body Control Pilates Association, widely seen as a quality standard for Pilates teaching. All members of the Association adhere to a strict Code of Practice to ensure the highest teaching standards and professional ethics. Body Control Pilates teachers are also set apart by the way in which every client is assessed before starting classes and in the way that they teach exercises in a progressive way, gradually adding more complex moves, to build strength and flexibility.
As part of the membership it is necessary to complete at least 100 points annually towards my CPD (continued professional development) and I am fully insured.
Specialist areas include:
- Body Control Pilates ‘Pilates & Pregnancy’
- Body Control Pilates ‘Pilates & Osteoporosis’
- Body Control Pilates Standing
- Body Control Pilates Control and Balance
- Pilates for the older person.
- Pilates for men.
- Pilates on the ball, small balls and therabands, toning circles workshops
- Pelvic Floor Workshop Feb 2005 and June 2010
As well as numerous course/ lectures at annual Development weekends in London, studying anatomy in greater detail looking at the roles of specific muscles and facia and their effects on our bodies.
“For approximately 9 months I have had the pleasure of being taught Pilates in one of Claire Day’s classes. Claire’s small classes are always friendly and informal, however include full and clear instructions, along with gentle physical corrections by Claire when needed.”
