A ‘must do’ course. The Intermediate Matwork course is the perfect bridging course for teachers working towards the more advanced exercises. It is designed to build on the knowledge and skills that teachers have learned from their Matwork Certification Course and provides an essential gateway to further development through other Body Control Pilates courses.  It is therefore one of the first courses that we recommend teachers to undertake once qualified.

The main element of this course introduces the Classical Matwork philosophy, providing a preparatory series of exercises and transitions that can be introduced into classes to add progession to clients. More importantly, it paves the way to understanding the structure and integrity of Joseph Pilates’ original work, essential in the development of a Pilates teacher.

The ‘Classical Mat’ is viewed by many Pilates enthusiasts as the essence of the Pilates Method. We believe that it forms a vital part in the development of a fully rounded Pilates teacher. Performing and understanding this work gives a teacher a sense of completeness and enlightenment with regard to the original method.
This course covers the Classical Matwork repertoire in its entirety, including transitions between exercises. It preserves the integrity of Joseph Pilates’ original work by maintaining the highly athletic and dynamic style of flowing movements. Through the way in which Body Control Pilates approaches the advanced work, participants are better able to assimilate this advanced work as they build upon the detailed movement knowledge gained from their previous matwork courses. Emphasis is placed on delivering this material safely, effectively and appropriately, so that it can be used by teachers to further their own personal development as well as that of their clients.
