What is Pilates?

The Method of Contrology

Pilates is a Physical Fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, after whom it was named. Pilates called his method “Contrology”. It is practiced worldwide, especially in Western countries such as Australia, Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. As of 2005, there were 11 million people practicing the discipline regularly and 14,000 instructors in the United States.

Pilates is a method developed in the aftermath of the late 19th century physical culture of exercising in order to alleviate ill health. It teaches one’s body a concept and not just exercises. This concept is based on learning how to move your body effectively, developing body awareness, alignment, strength, stamina and an amazing level of confidence that can be transferred to all facets of life.
