Joseph Pilates

German born Joseph Pilates was living in England at the outbreak of WWI.  In 1914 under forced internment, he began to develop the floor exercises that evolved into what we now know as fundamental Pilates exercises.  He taught camp members core concepts and exercises from yoga, Zen, ancient Greek and Roman physical regimens.  The exercises known today as “matwork” became the foundation of his method.

He incorporated the 6 fundamental principles in all of his exercises which include posture, body mechanics, correct breathing, spinal flexibility, physical education, and his law of natural exercises.  Using these principals he devised equipment to rehabilitate his patients with springs and pulleys for the injured and bedridden.

Today, Pilates is a method not only used as a process of rehabilitation but as a focused method to strengthen, stretch, improve posture and balance the body.  With the quality of movement being the focus of the method, Pilates can be practiced at any fitness level.
