Joesph Pilates developed a body conditioning system known today as “pilates” originally named “contrology.” Pilates is the complete co-ordination of body, mind and spirit. Acquiring control over your body through his system of exercises would provide suppleness, muscular power, with corresponding endurance, good posture and alleviation of body strain. He focused on the conscious control of all muscular movements in the body providing complete balance of body and mind. Joseph focused on body mechanics and applying proper leverage principles while having regard to the skeletal framework of the body and muscle systems. His focus centers around posture, mechanics, correct breathing, spinal flexibility and appropriate physical exercise. If you read his original texts, first published in 1934, you will note his conviction that his regime alone could properly counter many of the ill effects of modern existence which involve everything from bad posture, bad diet to physical and mental strain.
