With professional application it helps avoid muscle and ligament damage and is one of the few exercise systems recommended for rehabilitation following injury and/or for treating chronic pain.
It is suitable for men and women of all ages and levels of fitness.
“In order to achieve happiness, it is imperative to gain mastery of your body. If at the age of 30 you are stiff and out of shape, you are old. If at 60 you are supple and strong then you are young.”
Joseph H. Pilates
The proliferation of Pilates studios worldwide is a lasting testimonial to the Joseph Pilates’ intuitive understanding of human movement.
Following his death in 1967, the regime almost disappeared for a number of years, but a devoted few believers kept the ideals alive until the tide turned and the Pilates method gained the popular recognition it always deserved.
Today Pilates practitioners continue to follow Joseph Pilates’ core principles, with the additional benefit of the application of modern scientific research.
