WHAT IS PILATES?
Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates. He developed a series of 34 mat based exercises to stretch and strengthen the body and bring it back into balance. Pilates exercises teach awareness of breath and alignment of the body, with a focus on the deep, supporting muscles. There is an emphasis on working in a controlled and careful way.
