This Matwork class with Paul focuses on strengthening the back line of the upper and lower body, through working in extension.

Paul began practising Pilates in 1999 after sustaining a sports-related injury to his spine. He had previously spent 15 years as an engineer, but, following his injury, he decided to retrain as a Pilates teacher.
Paul has been teaching Body Control Pilates since 2003 and is now a member of the Body Control Pilates Education tutor team for Matwork and Small Equipment courses and our Level 4 Pilates courses. Paul has also gained the Level 4 Pilates qualification which he puts to use in the classes and 1:1s he teaches at the Body Control Pilates Centre and in Surrey.
Paul has a wealth of experience in dealing with injuries and still has a keen interest in sport, having completed numerous marathons, half marathons and a full Ironman. He spends much of his time working with athletes helping them attain their full potential. Paul studies biomechanics and believes good movement is the key to a healthy body.
