What is Pilates? it is low impact exercise to sculpt, tone and strengthen your body.
It was designed by Joseph Pilates was born 9 December 1883 in Mönchengladbach, Germany.
Joseph Pilates was originally a gymnast and bodybuilder, he studied yoga and using minimal-equipment he collaborated with important experts in dance and physical exercise to devise his exercises, previously known as “Contrology”.
Joseph encouraged the use of the mind to control the muscles, focusing attention on core postural muscles that help keep the body balanced and provide support for the spine. In particular, Joseph’s exercises taught awareness of breath, alignment of the spine and strengthening of the deep muscles of the torso and abdominals. His exercise regimen quickly developed the reputation for its results of building core flexibility, strength and stamina.
