Body Control Pilates

Where Mind and Body Unite

 

Pilates & Reformer Classes

Our classes are suitable for anybody who wants to take up Pilates, regardless of your age or fitness level. Here at Envigour Pilates we run both beginner, intermediate and advanced level classes. We also offer Ballet Barre and Vinyasa Yoga. Our classes are kept even smaller now to a maximum of 3 (and we quite like it) to comply with the current COVID guidelines and to ensure maximum attention is given to each participant. We also offer limited access to these classes via ZOOM. We also offer privates and semi privates both on the Reformer and Pilates Studio Apparatus.

Why pilates?

Unlike some forms of exercise, Pilates does not over-develop some parts of the body and neglect others. While Pilates training focuses on core strength, it trains the body as an integrated whole. Pilates workouts promote strength and balanced muscle development as well as flexibility and increased range of motion for the joints.

Welcome to Envigour Pilates

Belinda Moss is the owner and founder of Envigour Pilates. She made the jump from the corporate world over 19 years ago into the world of contrology and Joseph Pilates. During her second pregnancy she suffered terribly with back pain and sciatica to the point she was put on crutches and had weekly physio sessions to relieve the excruciating pain she was experiencing on a daily basis. The pain was not only from the pregnancy, but also as a result of a road accident on a bike when she was younger. About 8 months after she gave birth and still not feeling back to her normal self she joined a Pilates class whilst on holiday in Greece. She was so impressed with how she felt and finally pain free for the first time that she wanted to know more.

Once back in England it didn’t take long for her to enroll with Body Control Pilates and so her journey began. Roll forward 19 years Belinda is a master and studio teacher with a lower back pain diploma. She has gained a wealth of experience teaching over the years in back pain, hyper-mobility, pre and postnatal pregnancy, working with the elderly, scoliosis (which she has herself), hypermobility, knee and hip replacements and many more. Belinda has worked also with professionals to assist them in their sports needs such as golf, football, cycling, horse riding, running and swimming. Alongside her Pilates Belinda is also a Reiki practitioner.

Belinda is at the heart of Envigour, where she has created a warm, friendly and professional practice. You will always see her around in the studio even if you are being taught by one her amazing teachers in the small classes they run. Her goal is to reach out and help as many people as she can to feel physically stronger when going about their everyday life’s. Especially those that have focused so long on their families or work and put their physical needs last. Taking them on a journey from either fear of movement or just simply poor posture of lack of strength and flexibility is so rewarding when we see the results. She is totally passionate about spreading the Contrology Pilates principals set out by Joseph Pilates (the original founder of Pilates). Pilates helped Belinda all those years ago to be pain free and transformed her life for the future. If you’re looking to start a new well-being form of exercise that you can stick to and will benefit you for the rest of your life, then look no further you have come to the right place.

“I feel as passionate about Pilates today as I did when I first started. Being able to pass on my knowledge to others, and having trained a range of clients of differing abilities and fitness levels I am constantly amazed at the results achieved. I get great pleasure when I see my client’s technique increase in confidence, skill and self-awareness.  I believe we are capable of achieving so much more than we believe we can.   With my encouragement, and support you will be sure to find that, as you become stronger and more toned through regular sessions, Pilates will become an essential part of your life.”

Body Control Pilates is widely seen as a benchmark for safe and effective teaching of the highest quality. Qualified instructors have completed comprehensive training course in Body Control Pilates mat work and work to a laid down Code of Practice governing teaching standards, professional’s ethics and continuing education. This ensures that teachers continue to build their own skills and knowledge on a regular basis.

 The UK National Standard for Pilates

The UK is the first country in the world to have a national standard governing the teaching of Pilates mat work.  It is endorsed by Skills Active and the Register of Exercise Professionals and is recognised by the European Health and Fitness Association.

Body Control Pilates was the first specialist Pilates training provider to receive approval against this standard and all teachers who graduate are automatically recognised as meeting the national standard (Level 3 Pilates Teacher).
