Pilates is a form of exercise that focuses
on the area of the body from the hips to the
chest. Created by Joseph Pilates in 1914, the
exercise Pilates was taught by Joseph Pilates
to his fellow prison camp inmates during WWI.
Pilates was a combination of yoga, Zen, and
ancient Greek and Roman physical regimens which
Joseph Pilates had taught himself as well as
learned during his apprenticeship.
Some of the benefits of practicing Pilates
are increased lung capacity and circulation
through deep breathing and strength and flexibility
(mainly of the abdomen and back muscles). Posture,
balance, and core strength are all increased
as well. Many state they experience positive
body awareness for the first time upon beginning
a complete Pilates program.

Pilates focuses on the core muscles of the body – these are 26 muscles located in the abdominal and lower back area of the body.
There is a strong connection between the mind and body, much like Yoga, and thus this mind-body relationship is the essence of the Pilates practice.
Some of the movement principles of Pilates are:
ACHIEVE BALANCE: Importance of uniformly developed muscles of the body in Pilates.
- BE EFFICIENT: Working towards efficiency helps to focus our energy where it is needed.
- SEEK HARMONY: Harmony of the mind, body, and soul which is the essence of Pilates.
