About Liz Davis Pilates

I have been practising Pilates for over 20 years and qualified as a Body Control Pilates teacher in 2005 and began teaching that year when I moved from London to Norfolk. I discovered Pilates as a result of editing a series of Pilates books written by Lyn Robinson who founded the Body Control Pilates Association, and it has undoubtedly improved my posture, flexibility and strength.

The Body Control Pilates Association (www.bodycontrolpilates.com), founded in 1996, is Europe’s foremost professional Pilates organisation. Its main aims are the training of new Pilates teachers and providing ongoing training for its qualified teachers. It is a non-profit-making organisation and is governed by a council made up of elected members. Today, Body Control Pilates is widely seen as a benchmark for safe and effective teaching of the highest quality, with teachers working in more than 40 countries. It is Europe’s largest professional Pilates organisation with over 1,400 teaching members and all of our certified teachers have, at a minimum, completed a comprehensive training course in Body Control Pilates matwork (Level 3). They work to a Code of Practice governing teaching standards, professional ethics and continuing education. This ensures that teachers continue to build their own skills and knowledge on an ongoing basis, with all Body Control Pilates teachers having access to a programme of more than thirty further courses after initial qualification.


I am qualified to teach basic, intermediate and advanced matwork and the reformer, chair and cadillac. I am a Level 4 Exercise Specialist in the Management of Low Back Pain on the register of exercise professionals; this course has also been recognised by Back Care the leading UK charity dealing with back pain (www.backcare.org.uk). I supervise student teachers who have to do many hours of teaching practice before they can be fully qualified. I have also served on the Body Control Pilates Association council.
