The pilates method is a unique exercise system of stretching and strengthening developed by Joseph H. Pilates
The Pilates method of physical toning is a unique exercise system of stretching and strengthening developed by Joseph H. Pilates more than ninety years ago. It tones and strengthens the muscles, improves posture, imparts flexibility and balance, unifies the body and mind, and leads to a return to a healthier, more attractive physique. In the past few years, whether due to a rise in collective consciousness or the dissatisfaction with modish ‘work-outs’ and exercise regimes, there has been a boom in exercise regimes that focus on the mind/body connection. Matt-based exercises teach us that the body is the best and only tool we need to get into excellent shape. The Pilates philosophy is based on the training of body and mind together in order to achieve complete physical fitness. Older training systems focus on working out isolated muscles and separate areas of the body, instead of training the body as a whole. If what you’re looking for is overall balance, improved circulation, reduced stress, an increase in stamina, and feeling your best, why not try out the only method that has established itself
over so many decades?
