Lynne Robinson and Body Control Pilates have brought Joseph Pilates' original teachings to a vast international readership, creating exercise programmes that are famed for their clarity, effectiveness and safety. Building on the bestselling success of The Official Body Control Pilates Manual, The Complete Classic Pilates Method heralds Body Control's breakdown of the full matwork programme. Originally devised for dancers and athletes, this dynamic course brings physically-demanding exercises within everyone's grasp, breaking them down into three clear levels: beginner, intermediate and advanced. Complete with watchpoints and warnings for each level, preparation exercises ensure that you are ready to tackle the full action. Culminating in fluent workouts that demand only a minimum of 10 minutes four times a week, this is the clearest and most meticulously graded Pilates manual available.
