Pilates is very closely based upon the method of body conditioning and training developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920s.
The exercise method, relies on strengthening core postural muscles and works by building strength from inside out, to rebalance the body. It aims to reshape your body, making it longer, leaner and more toned and helps to prevent the muscle and ligament damage, sometimes associated with other fitness regimes. Specific problem-areas can be targeted by an exercise, but always in relation to the rest of one’s body.
Its success rate as a method has brought it to the attention of osteopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists and doctors.
