The Pilates Method is an innovative system of mind-body exercises evolved from the principles of Joseph H. Pilates. Developed in the early 20th century, the method is great for people of all fitness levels and is uniquely suited for the rehabilitation environment. This low impact exercise system involves floor and equipment-based exercises that emphasize breath and core strengthening. The exercises help to improve overall balance, coordination, alignment and flexibility, resulting in long lean muscles.
The Pilates Method now is widely used for fitness and rehabilitation, and it is quickly being incorporated into health clubs and physical therapy programs.
