Carefully structured graded Matwork classes from Beginners to Advanced for well-being, strength, flexibility, agility, a healthy spine, better posture and more energy.
Affordable group tuition and progression through well structured levels, evenings and Saturdays in Central London NW1 with one of the UK's first and finest Pilates teachers. PBA, an enduring ever-evolving school of Pilates Matwork established in 1987 by Chris Hocking, offers a high quality service, safe, thorough, effective tuition and good value for money. £17.50 for the 2 class Taster Deal currently running Saturdays 2-3pm term time*, and £120 for an Inaugural Course (Basics) of 10 weeks.
*Please note, PBA is a progressive training method for the teaching of Pilates Matwork. As with all progressive systems built upwards from a foundation, the best place to start is in an Entry level class teaching Foundation material, Saturdays 2-3pm term time. From there you can evolve and develop at a speed suitable for your health, structural alignment and background training. Access to higher levels 2-5 is through PBA membership and training.
