The main goal of PILATES is to achieve spinal health through specific movement patterns.
“Your body is only as young as you spine will allow you to be”. Joseph Pilates.
After practicing Pilates over two decades now, I can attest that it realigns your skeletal system, create balance between muscle tissues, improves posture and flexibility, decompresses your joints, and builds both mental and physical strength.
There is one thing that can be observed from the classical repertoire, a lack of rotational movement patterns. As such, many instructors have taken from other modalities and created new repertoire to complement the existing work of Pilates.
The method, when understood and applied intelligently is remarkably powerful in creating permanent neuromuscular changes.
Taught on the mat or on the equipment, Pilates is my preferred go to modality.
A Brief History of the man himself
Joseph Pilates was influenced by Zen meditation, Yoga, and the training of the Greek and Roman. The roots of the method were entirely restorative at first and progressed to becoming a more rigorous form of training . Mr. Pilates was also an inventor and developed many pieces of equipment - including the Reformer, the most popular piece of the market today, the Cadillac a piece inspired by old hospital beds, and the Wunda Chair, a piece inspired by daily life furniture. He added to its collection smaller pieces to accommodate the dance community when he moved to New York.
Pilates was an avid skier, boxer and gymnast. He was often seen wearing only white shorts and ballet shoes, and loved cigars.
