What is Pilates?
"I must be right. Never an aspirin. Never injured a day in my life. The whole country, the whole world, should be doing my exercises. They'd be happier."
Joseph Hubertus Pilates, in 1965, age 86.
Pilates is a precision based form of exercise which first focuses on the core muscles, referred to as the "powerhouse" and then branches to strengthen and tone the entire body. The technique improves flexibility and muscular symmetry while emphasizing balance and control. Pilates accentuates quality of movement over quantity to promote the developement of lean, long muscles and powerful mind-body control. The Pilates exercises consist of both mat and machine work.
