Pilates is an exercise method that has been around for decades. The exercise routine in its rawest form was said to have been in existence years before the man credited with its development, into the method we know today, brought it to the world’s attention back in the early 1900s. Joseph Pilates was the founder of the form Controlgy we know of as the Pilates method today.
Joseph Pilates passed away back in October of 1967. But his legacy lives on today through the students and clients he trained during his time of owning his studio in New York. Since that time however, many things have changed. There are several Pilates organizations available for enthusiasts to join. There are multiple forms of the method in which a student can participate and various styles of practice exist as well.
Some folks are committed to holding on to the original classic work of Joe Pilates. Some people have a desire to change the practice of the method in the flow and the movement. And still other folks want to enhance the routine by the way the technique of the moves are formed.
