PBA CELEBRATES 30 YEARS

Congratulations to PBA and all who have made this possible
Launched in 1987, Pilates Body Awareness is 30 in September 2017. It was the very first Matwork system of Pilates classes to establish itself in London.

We are a mixture of all ages and backgrounds, some have been with the school since the beginning and some have only just joined us. We are all here to at least maintain if not better our health. We are nurtured by enjoyable graded classes, Levels 1-5, and leave taller, lighter, brighter, more relaxed, muscle balance restored and tension reduced. Founder teacher Chris Hocking's pledge to her students has always been to teach group Matwork classes to the same standard as her impressive training in the early UK Pilates studios, the same attention to detail, application of corrective and remedial material, anatomical insight and a broad, progressive, forever fascinating range of effective body-sculpting material. PBA has much to offer to the new student estranged from exercise and looking for considered tuition, and to a more experienced student looking for an expert in the field and progression into authentic, advanced, Pilates body-work.

See JOINING for what to bring with you to class... and also 'Pilates Body Awareness' on Google Maps for photographs of kit and reviews.

    How to get the most out of your Pilates Practice: Backbends
    by Chris Hocking, November 2016

    Announce in class that we are working up to backbends and a discernible groan is released even in the advanced groups. Good Pilates students also find backbends tough because of the ills of the sedentary life style... but at least they are doing something about it and benefiting from correct practice.
