Pilates Classes Aylesbury Buckinghamshire: If you've been doing various kinds of exercise in Aylesbury, but have not achieved the results you were seeking, perhaps it's high time to try something a bit different. One sort of exercise which you may think about trying, if you have not already attempted it, is Pilates, a regime which aims to boost body condition, core strength, flexibility, physical strength, body awareness, posture and balance using special apparatus, from readily available mats to really sophisticated equipment.

Just What is Pilates?: Pilates was introduced by a German gymnast and physical trainer called Joseph Pilates during the early Twentieth Century, and was an exercise program that he called "Contrology". Pilates became extremely popular towards the end of the 20th Century and is practiced worldwide, although is more ubiquitous in countries like Canada, Great Britain and the United States.

Joseph Pilates developed various pieces of equipment for people to practice his workout routines, starting with just a basic mat (still most favoured at present) and advancing to apparatus that he named the Spine Corrector, the Cadillac, the Reformer, the Ladder Barrel, the Wunda Chair, the High "Electric" Chair and the Pedi-Pole.

Combined with the different kinds of apparatus you will find a similarly perplexing variety of Pilates methodologies available in Aylesbury, each with its particular instructors and enthusiasts. Numbered among the many kinds of Pilates styles are Powerhouse Pilates (strengthening and stretching the muscles without adding bulk), Reformer Pilates (only using "The Reformer"), Fletcher Pilates (combining movement and dance with traditional exercises), Contemporary Studio Pilates (done in properly equipped studios with experienced instructors), Mat Pilates (still the most popular), Classical Pilates (sticking closely to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural shape of the spine), Clinical Pilates (aimed towards a specific injury) and other more obscure ones.

Several of these came into being because Joseph Pilates never trademarked his methods and his numerous students and followers then went out and put together their own variants of the regimen, some became giants in their field and include among them the likes of Bruce King, Robert Fitzgerald, Jay Grimes, Romana Kryzanowska, Maja Wollman, Bob Seed, Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Mary Bowen, Eve Gentry, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Carola Treir (the first to open her own studio), Lolita San Miguel, Kathy Grant, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph) and others, these were called the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern book on Pilates was released the early 1980's and authored by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this guide outlines 6 primary concepts of Pilates, concentration, precision, control, breathing, centre and flow and those principles have been for the most part put into practice by today's Pilates instructors.
