Pilates is a method of body conditioning created by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s. It is a core strengthening system of exercises focused on deep control to heal weaknesses in the body. Originally called “Contrology,” it is a complete coordination of mind, body and spirit achieved through repetition of and deepening within exercises. Pilates has become widely adopted by professional athletes as regular form of training.
