About Liz Davis Pilates

I’ve been practising Pilates for over 25 years and qualified as a Body Control Pilates teacher in 2005. I began teaching that year, when I moved from London to Norfolk. I discovered Pilates a result of editing a series of Pilates books written by Lynne Robinson, when I worked for Macmillan Publishers, and it has undoubtedly improved my posture and kept me flexible and strong into my middle sixties. Lynne and her husband Leigh founded the Body Control Pilates Association in 1996 and it is now the foremost Pilates teaching organisation in the UK. Over the last few years it has expanded its training courses worldwide.

"Change happens through movement and movement heals."
Joseph Pilates


I am qualified to teach all levels of matwork, which, as the name suggests, is done on a mat! Pilates is a safe and effective way to increase core stability, in other words the major muscle groups of the body, and to keep you supple and flexible. As you get stronger and more confident about your body, I add more complicated and challenging movements. Pilates isn’t competitive so everyone works to their own level.

The Reformer

Created in the 1920s by Joseph Pilates, the reformer remains fundamentally unchanged in terms of design and function. It is a versatile, resistance-based machine consisting of springs and straps connected to a moving carriage. Exercises can be done lying down, sitting, kneeling or standing on the carriage – you put your hands or feet in the straps to move the carriage against the resistance of the springs. The resistance is varied depending on the objectives of the exercise. The reformer increases strength and body awareness and is good for discovering imbalances in the body. I qualified to teach reformer classes 10 years ago, and have a reformer at my home studio.
