History of Pilates
At its core Pilates is a discipline, created by a strong man, a gymnast and a boxer, Joseph Pilates. Created as a dynamic movement experience to be practiced over time and carried through life.
Joseph spent years questioning and challenging the status quo as the link between happiness, health and fitness, becoming his passion - truly a visionary and ahead of his time. The fitness industry is only now catching up as we choose more and more to work out intelligently.
Elements of all the disciplines Joseph practised such as boxing, gymnastics, martial arts, yoga, skiing, self-defence, dance, weightlifting, circus training can be found in his work. He studied, trained and selected the most effective aspects from each to develop the Pilates Method - Contrology.
His exercises take you through all ranges of movement and, as you develop, you are continually challenged with new exercises, new apparatus and new experiences. You will develop both in mind and body making the Pilates benefits far reaching and available to everybody.
