Pilates – A Beginners Guide To The Key Principles

The Pilates method of exercise as we know it today, was pioneered by Joseph Pilates, who originally used his knowledge of strength and fitness in the rehabilitation of injured servicemen in the First World War. He later moved to New York in 1926 established a successful studio primarily working with dancers and published his first book in 1934 titled ‘Your Health’. In the book he discusses his method of ‘Contrology’ promoting his ideas about the balance of body and mind to maintain good health. Since the death of Joseph Pilates in 1967, his teaching methods and techniques have remained popular for the prevention of and rehabilitation from injury.
