About Us

All KBC Body Control Pilates sessions take place in our purpose –built studio in the Abbeyhill area of Edinburgh. The centre comprises 2 light , airy studios, the larger studio for group matwork classes, the smaller for 1:1 or 1:2 sessions.

KBC Pilates is run by me, Kathy Connolly. I discovered the benefits of Body Control Pilates while looking for relief for my low back pain and was so impressed with the results that I decided to train as a Pilates teacher.

After initially training with the Pilates Institute in London, I started teaching matwork classes in Edinburgh and the Lothians. Always looking to deepen my Pilates knowledge and improve my teaching skills, I decided to train further with Body Control Pilates, the first specialist Pilates training provider to receive approval from Skills Active and the Register of Exercise Professionals.

I have continued to develop my skills through other courses-Pilates in Pregnancy, postural alignment, small equipment-all of which allow me to adapt my teaching to my clients' needs.

After years of taking my classes out to the community, I have now opened my own studio where clients can benefit from the tranquil space, on-site equipment and small class numbers.
