Pilates is a Body Conditioning System of over 700 exercises performed on unique equipment that was created by Joesph H. Pilates at the turn of the 20th century. Mr. Pilates developed his system as a way to deal with the rise of poor health, which he believed was enabled by a "modern lifestyle" consisting of bad posture and poor breathing due to a lack of core strength. He created a regime to train the "mind-body connection" with inspirations from gymnastics, boxing, dance, body-building, yoga, and martial arts.
The Six Principles of Pilates are
Power comes from the core
Movements are deliberate and purposeful
Engaging the mind and the body together
