“Contrology is designed to give you suppleness, natural grace, and skill that will be unmistakeably reflected in the way you walk, in the way you play, and in the way you work.” — Joseph Pilates
The Pilates Method is an exercise system designed and developed by Joseph H. Pilates to stretch, strengthen, and balance the human body. Combining precise energetic movement with mindful breathing, it boosts circulation and cleanses the lungs.
In practice, it is a well designed series of exercises to be performed in a specific order and at a deliberate pace. Philosophically, it is about engaging in self-revitalization, and is rooted in the premise that the human form is adaptable, capable of growth, and naturally suited to pleasurable living.
