Pilates is a method of body conditioning which strengthens and tones muscles, improves posture, provides flexibility and balance and unites body and mind.
Pilates was developed by German-born Joseph Pilates, who believed mental and physical health were closely connected. His method was influenced by western forms of exercise, including gymnastics, boxing and wrestling. Pilates immigrated to the US in the 1920s and opened a studio in New York, where he taught his method – which he called 'Contrology' – for several decades.
