ABOUT JOSEPH HIMSELF
Creator of the method Joseph Pilates suffered from several childhood diseases which left him weak and underdeveloped. With his determination and will power he overcame his frailties by practising a physical fitness regime. Through the transformation of his own body and influences of new ideas he developed his training philosophy around the time of the First World War before opening up his studio in New York in the 1920’s. He was renowned for working with both ballet dancers and boxing champions. His method included building strength with long lean muscles, balancing strength and flexibility and achieving the perfect harmony between mind and body.
THE PILATES METHOD
Pilates is a body-conditioning method that works uniquely to create strength from within, rebalancing the body and bringing it back to it’s optimal alignment. A complete mind /body connection, Pilates offers simultaneous mental and physical training, isolates the muscles to improve body awareness and release tension.. The approach is holistic and emphasises quality of movement over quantity.
