"In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 sessions you'll see the difference, and in 30 sessions you'll have a whole new body", Joseph Pilates

 

Pilates had originally been a unique set of daily exercises for general

fitness and stress relief, created by physiological pioneer Joseph Pilates

in 1920s in New York. The method has been referred to as "Contrology".

 

  Since then this method has captivated the hearts of many people all over the world. I has been further developed and enhanced by keen and

devoted enthusiasts in many countries.

 

 

Joseph Pilates was born in 1880 in Germany. A frail child, he had a keen interest in empowering the body to achieve its full potential. He found that aerobic exercise alone was not enough to keep his body feeling strong and

free of aches and pains. He opened his first studio for dancers in

New York in 1920.

 

Pilates works towards total body re-conditioning, and is based on a number

of Principles some of which are Stretch, Strength and Control.

Pilates continues to be used by athletes, and more recently has been

adapted to help people of all levels. It is increasingly used to complement Physiotherapy and Osteopathy.

 

Back in the 1920s, when Joseph Pilates opened his studio in

New York, some famous stars, such as Katherine Hepburn and Lauren Baccall, came as clients. These days Liz Hurley, Uma Thurman, Sarah Jessica Parker are all Pilates fans. In modern day life we seem to do many things, like sitting in an office for hours, watching TV, driving - things that throw our balance and alignment off. Pilates works to re-build and bring it back.

 

People are often referred to Pilates Method by their physiotherapist, osteopath or chiropractor in order to re-habilitate their back neck or shoulder problems, only to discover the wonderful "side effects":

firmer flatter abdomen, toned arms, legs and buttox, stronger spine,

re-aligned back neck and shoulders, improved flexibility and posture.  

It also works as a great stress relief, improves your sleep and helps

you stay in control throughout the day.

 

Joseph Pilates used to say:

 

“In 10 sessions you feel a difference. In 20 sessions you see the

difference. And in 30 sessions you’ve got whole new body”.

 

...It is "work in progress", and it may take shorter or longer time,

but the results are amazing.

And once you achieve them, they actually last.

 

Enjoy your workout!
