All Body Control Pilates Teachers and Coney Hill Studio Graduates work to a code of practice, which governs teaching standards, professional ethics and continuing education. The BCPA (Body Control Pilates Association) have a Continuing Professional Development programme whereby teachers are required to keep their knowledge up to date by attending courses and workshops regularly.

Body Control Pilates® instructors are classified as Level 3 or Level 4 (Advanced Instructors), which is the basis by which GP’s and other health professionals base their referrals.

Kara – MEd, PGCE, BA (Hons)

Hi I’m Kara and I am passionate about body movement – and in particular, Pilates. I fell in love with movement, and the incredible lengths to which our bodies can go, long before I began my life as a Pilates Teacher.

As a small child I started ballet at The Thompson School of Ballet and at seven I began gymnastics, ultimately competing at National Level. Following a sports injury I eventually found my way to Body Control Pilates, reaffirming my love of movement and the astonishing complexities and abilities of the human body.

I have studied Pilates widely and intensively under a variety of highly-skilled specialists. I am especially interested in Hypermobility, Pelvic Health, Pilates in Pregnancy and Pilates in Older Age.

I am trained in the following specialities:

Pilates Master – The very highest level of Pilates qualifications (Body control Pilates Certified)

MEd. Teesside University
