In the early 20th century, German physical trainer Joseph Pilates developed a type of mind-body exercise after whom it was named. He created a series of ‘body conditioning’ called Contrology to help aid his recovery from physical ailments.
Opening a studio in New York, he taught these methods. A lot of the equipment he designed is still in use today in Pilates studios around the world, although adapted.
‘Pilates is complete coordination of body, mind and spirit’.
