Now that Chris Hocking, our Founder Teacher, 1987, and PBA Principal, is approaching retirement after 40+ years of service to the world of Pilates Teaching, it would be good to know more about the successor to the role of PBA Principal Teacher.
You can find Petronella Carter's CV and inspirational words in the PBA Downloads. Petronella was one of the very first PBA students...that is a very long time to deepen her understanding of both the technique and Hocking's approach to the teaching of it.
Good Luck Petronella
For those of you on Facebook you can survey Hocking's body of work in the FB Profile, Christin Hocking. This is the woman who created PBA and has nurtured and sustained a feast of graded matwork classes for 33 years. Even upon retirement she had set up the means for her students to keep their training going...and very pleased they are too.
