Joseph H. Pilates

The creator of Pilates, Joseph Pilates, was an athlete. He was strong, muscular, flexible and had great uniformity in his body. He had a unique ability to help others find all of these things within themselves as well.  Pilates called his method, Contrology: the mind moves the body.

When he moved to the United States after World War II, he came to New York and began training boxers, dancers, gymnasts and circus performers. He was a movement expert way ahead of his time. He spent time working on the details and made sure that his work was done the way it should be done for each individual client he trained.

No one client was trained exactly the same. It was this individual attention to each client that made his work so unique.  It is also why there are many different ways to do Pilates.

Joseph Pilates’ method is a series of exercises linked together intelligently and with purpose. It is designed to lengthen and strengthen muscles while incorporating a multitude of principles such as breathing, concentration, control, centering, flow and precision to improve how you feel in your body (see the links at the bottom of this page regarding professional athletes that use Pilates training).
