    How Pilates Benefits Everyone

Pilates is an group of exercises initially referred to as contrology. These exercises were developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s. Joseph came to the United States in the 1920’s where he opened a gym specializing in contrology. Joseph Pilates was a boxer, but he soon began working with injured ballet dancers initially due to proximity, given that his gym was located next door to the New York Ballet. As he rehabilitated these dancers, word spread and numerous dancers flocked to work with Joseph.

Classical pilates continues to evolve from the original exercises. Newer innovative and advanced exercises have evolved and others have been modified and enhanced to aid technique and meet the demands of today’s students.

Visual cues are used to aid each client’s understanding of their body to help them understand the importance of the exercise and what area of their body we are targeting. Read more
