What is Pilates?

Pilates gets its name from Joseph Hubertus Pilates. Born December 09, 1883, in Monchengladbach, Germany, he was a sickly child suffering from asthma, rickets, & rheumatic fever. Early on in his life he worked to overcome these ailments through movement. In 1912 he moved to England war broke out and he was interned in the camps. Joe decided he would help those with him make it through as healthy as possible so, he developed exercises that could be done on the floor and made makeshift “exercise equipment” out of what was available. He knew from his own experience as a sickly child that movement was the answer and even if you were bedridden you needed to exercise the body parts that you could.

The war ended and Joe later moved to America New York City. He opened his own exercise studio and continued to develop his idea of “Contrology” using the mind to control muscles with the focus on core abdominal muscles that keep the body balanced and give support to the spine. Joe passed in 1967 and by now the trend of Joes healing exercises had taken hold and have been fine tuned, changed, and added too over these many years.

For me Joe’s insistence that movement heals has been born out over the years I have been using his teachings. It must, for me, remain the rehabilitative exercise it began from for no one person comes to the “Pilates Teacher” completely whole.
