Benefits of Pilates

Pilates is a form of mind and body exercise that focuses on strengthening the deep stabilizing muscles of the body. Joseph Pilates referred to the core stabilizing muscles as the “Powerhouse”, these muscle groups provide support and proper posture to the body.

About Pilates

Stott Pilates is the contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by Joseph Pilates. STOTT PILATES along with a team of sport scientists, physiotherapists and fitness professionals have refined this method of exercise by including modern principles of exercise science and rehabilitation.

History

Joseph Pilates was born in Germany in the early 1900s. He was working in England as a circus performer and boxer when he was placed in a forced intemment camp in WWI. He began to work with rehabilitating detainees who were suffering from disease and injury. He utilized bed springs and beer keg rings for resistance which have evolved into the reformer and fitness circles. Later he moved to New York City where dancers and elite athletes relied on Pilates for more strength and its rehabilitative effects.
