What is Pilates?

 

Pilates, originally known as Contrology, is the complete coordination of body, mind and spirit.  You acquire, purposefully complete control of your body and through proper repetitions of the exercises, you gradually and progressively acquire that natural rhythm and co-ordination associated with all your subconscious activities. (Joseph Pilates 1883-1967, Return to Life)

 

The result of which is a stronger, more supple, functional body less prone to injury.

The exercises not only stimulate muscles through movement also organs within the body through the action of breathing.
