Pilates Body Awareness now in its 32nd year is led by the indefatigable, comprehensively trained ( ballet, Pilates, anatomy, yoga, karate) and resolute Chris Hocking.
As one of London’s original Pilates teachers, she was first in her field when it came to creating a school of graded Pilates Matwork in the 1980s…different classes, different abilities for efficacy and safety.
These highly respected classes where you can learn, improve and enjoy a thoroughly pleasant and relaxing atmosphere are conducive not only to progression but also to conviviality and a great atmosphere.
We neither strain nor distort.
The Basic Level Taster classes lead onto an Inaugural Course of 10 consecutive term-time weeks, 10 classes, costing £120

It works. It doesn’t hurt, you don’t get bored and your body rapidly changes for the better …intelligent bodywork.
PBA has an enduring reputation for brilliant, focussed classes and a very high standard of tuition est 1987 and still going strong.
