Pilates Wirral is owned and run by Andrew Hall. Andrew is a member of The Body Control Pilates® Association and is Level 3 on The Register of Exercise Professionals.
Andrew's first career was in Dance. He trained at the Royal Ballet School for seven years and danced professionally with The Hamburg Ballet in Germany for a further seven years. He started his Pilates practice when he was seventeen, working with Jane Paris, a Pilates teacher who now exclusively trains The Royal Ballet company. After retiring from Dance in 2005 he re-trained as a Body Control Pilates® teacher in London. The Body Control Pilates® Association is firmly established as a world leader in Pilates training. All teachers are members of this Association and adhere to a strict code of practice. Please visit www.bodycontrol.co.uk for more details. Andrew is also a Dance Lecturer at The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and teaches both Ballet and Pilates to Dance students on the BA (Hons) Performing Arts Dance programme.
Andrew holds his Body Control Pilates® basic/intermediate/advanced matwork, basic/intermediate/advanced Pilates reformer qualifications, basic and intermediate Pilates cadillac/tower certification and basic/intermediate chair qualification enabling him to teach on the specialist Pilates reformer, cadillac and chair. For all aspects of his matwork and equipment qualifications, Andrew had to undergo a period of supervised teaching and exams prior to his certification. He has also attended many other Pilates courses and workshops with leading UK and international presenters and this is continuously ongoing as part of his continual professional development for the Body Control Pilates® Association. All Pilates sessions at Pilates Wirral are primarily based around the reformer and tower although also include the use of many other small pieces of Pilates equipment, such as Pilates bands, barrels, foam rollers, sitfits, swiss balls and Pilates magic circles. Sessions will also include matwork exercises although it may be that an exercise on one of the machines may be more beneficial to the client. Classes are always structured around the individual, something that doesn't always occur in group Pilates classes.
