Just What is Pilates?: Pilates was formulated by a physical trainer and gymnast from Germany, named Joseph Pilates during the first part of the Twentieth Century, and was an exercise system which he called "Contrology". Pilates became extremely popular towards the end of the Twentieth Century and is widely practiced across the globe, though more widespread in countries like the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.

Joseph Pilates made a number of pieces of equipment on which to practice his exercise techniques, initially with an ordinary mat (still the most used at present) and advancing to apparatus which he called the Cadillac, the Reformer, the Spine Corrector, the Ladder Barrel, the High "Electric" Chair, the Wunda Chair and the Pedi-Pole.

Together with the various designs of apparatus you will find there are a correspondingly puzzling variety of Pilates methodologies offered in Aldwych, each with its specific instructors and followers. Amongst the various kinds of Pilates styles are Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural curves of the spine), Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Classical Pilates (sticking closely to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Fletcher Pilates (combining movement and dance with traditional techniques), Powerhouse Pilates (stretching and strengthening the muscles while not adding bulk), Mat Pilates (still the most favoured), Contemporary Studio Pilates (carried out in fully equipped studios with skillful instructors), Clinical Pilates (aimed at a specific injury) and other less popular ones.

A number of these came about because Joseph Pilates failed to trademark his exercise system and his various students and followers later went out and conceived their own particular variants of the regimen, some later became frontrunners in their field and include the likes of Eve Gentry, Bob Seed, Carola Treir (the first to open her own Pilates studio), Mary Pilates (the niece of Joseph Pilates), Mary Bowen, Lolita San Miguel, Robert Fitzgerald, Maja Wollman, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Romana Kryzanowska, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Jay Grimes, Kathy Grant, Bruce King and others, these were known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern book on Pilates was published the early 1980's and was authored by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this book outlines the six key principles of Pilates, precision, control, centre, concentration, breathing and flow and these 6 principles have been chiefly followed by present day Pilates instructors.
