A consistent Pilates practice will change your life forever, and I am here to help you on your journey.

Over the years I have personally tried almost every method of exercise and fell head over heels in love with Pilates. I went into the studio with my daughter because her doctor suggested it due to back pain. To be honest, I went into my intro class skeptical because I have always loved fasted paced exercises and power moves. My opinion changed quickly after a few classes. Pilates has so much to offer, and it is a hidden gem that gets better the more that you practice it.

History of Pilates

“Pilates” was developed by Joseph Pilates, born in 1880 in Germany. His father was a gymnast and his mother a naturopath. Joseph was very ill as a child (asthma, sunken chest, physical limitations). As he became a young man he made it his goal to overcome these weaknesses.  His plan was to strengthen and rehabilitate his body through physical fitness and muscular conditioning. He practiced many of the physical training regimens available in Germany and began to develop his own method.

In early 1912, Joseph left Germany to train as a professional boxer in England in addition to working as a circus performer and teaching self-defense to Scotland Yard detectives. During WWI, he was imprisoned in an England internment camp for German nationals. While there, he began rehabilitating injured soldiers. He positioned springs above hospital beds to create resistance.  This allowed patients to exercise while laying on their back recuperating, rather than growing weak from inactivity.  

He returned to Germany, quickly deciding to move to America. During his trip to America in 1923, he met his wife, Clara.  The couple established his first studio in New York, which became very successful, and he began to think about his method on a larger scale.  He named his method “Contrology” as he said it develops the body uniformly, corrects posture, restores physical vitality, and invigorates the mind and spirit.  Later, the practice of “Contrology” became known as “Pilates”.

From his experience and research, he found there was a clear connection between physical and mental health, so he developed this system of exercises and equipment (apparatus) intended to strengthen the human body and mind.
