“It is the mind itself which builds the body.” Joseph Pilates
Pilates (pronounced PEE-LA-TEEZ), in a word, is exercise!
More accurately, it is corrective exercise, balancing the body through a series of exercises for physical conditioning developed by Joseph Pilates (1880-1968).
Originally his system of exercise was called Contrology, “the complete coordination of body, mind and spirit”, achieving uniform development and balance within the body, emphasizing strong core or “powerhouse” development through the use of imagery.
The Pilates method of exercise emphasizes eight basic principles to achieve uniform development of the body: alignment; breathing; centering; concentration; coordination; flowing motion; relaxation; and stamina.
