It's great to welcome Duncan back to Body Control Pilates Central with the first of 2 masterclasses looking at how Pilates can help runners (the second session will be added to Body Control Pilates Central in February 2022).
This first session is primarily focused on balance work, challenging stability on each side of the body, and on improving range in our movement.
You may wish to use a resistance (stretch) band for this class.
Thanks to Sam White
Duncan made a total career change in 2006 when he qualified as a Body Control Pilates teacher. He was previously a successful Fixed Income Broker in the City, having worked in the financial markets for over 20 years in London, Madrid and Luxembourg. After suffering years of back pain as a result of his office-based work, he felt the benefits of Pilates as soon as he started going to classes. As his interest grew, he became keen to progress further and learning to teach with Body Control Pilates became a natural, logical progression.
Duncan is a member of the Body Control Pilates matwork and small equipment teacher training team and has also become a ‘Level 4 Low Back Pain’ specialist through the Body Control Pilates Back4Good® programme. More recently, Duncan developed our very well-received ‘Pilates for Runners’ course. Duncan brings a very special mix of knowledge, experience and practicality to this course, having run in more than 30 marathons and half-marathons, qualifying each year for a GFA place in London marathon. He has also worked with GB duathletes (running/cycling) and England Half-Marathon athletes.
