Invented over seventy years ago by Joseph
Pilates, who was a boxer and fitness enthusiast, Pilates has
become more than just a passing fad. More and more people, men
and women of varying ages, from athletes to corporate job holders,
from dancers to people recovering from various injuries, have
found that the system of body conditioning actually does work.
It is based on the idea that true core support - a combination
of strengthening and lengthening the muscles surrounding the
spine – acts as the keystone to
a healthy mind and body, facilitating a more efficient and pain-free
way of moving.
