Pilates Carlisle Cumbria

Pilates Classes Carlisle Cumbria: If you have been trying out various sorts of exercise in Carlisle, but have failed to get the results which you were hoping for, perhaps it is time for you to try something completely different. One style of exercise that you could consider trying, if you've not previously attempted it, is Pilates, a regime which aims to improve flexibility, mental awareness, physical strength, core strength, body condition, posture and stability through the use of special apparatus, from the ubiquitous mat to quite sophisticated equipment.

What is Pilates?: Pilates was created by a German physical trainer and gymnast called Joseph Pilates during the first part of the Twentieth Century, and was an exercise technique which he referred to as "Contrology". Pilates became especially popular in the latter part of the 20th Century and is widely practiced all over the world, though more prevalent in nations such as the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States.

Joseph Pilates formulated some pieces of apparatus on which to practice his exercise techniques, in the first instance with an ordinary mat (still the most used today) and moving on to apparatus that he called the Spine Corrector, the Reformer, the Ladder Barrel, the Cadillac, the Wunda Chair, the High "Electric" Chair and the Pedi-Pole.

Along with the various kinds of apparatus you will find there are a correspondingly baffling variety of Pilates methodologies available in Carlisle, each one with its particular instructors and aficionados. Amongst the various types of Pilates styles are Reformer Pilates (using only "The Reformer"), Mat Pilates (still the most popular), Classical Pilates (adhering rigidly to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Stott Pilates (for restoring the natural shape of the spine), Contemporary Studio Pilates (done in properly equipped studios with seasoned instructors), Fletcher Pilates (incorporating dance and movement with traditional exercises), Power Pilates (stretching and strengthening the muscles while not adding bulk), Clinical Pilates (aimed at a specific injury) and other less well known ones.

Many of those came about due to the fact that Joseph Pilates did not trademark his exercise program and his numerous students and followers ultimately went off and developed their own specific adaptations of the program, some went on to become giants in their field and include among them the likes of Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Romana Kryzanowska, Bruce King, Eve Gentry, Lolita San Miguel, Robert Fitzgerald, Carola Treir (the first to open her own Pilates studio), Mary Bowen, Bob Seed, Maja Wollman, Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Jay Grimes, Kathy Grant, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph) and others, these became known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first contemporary book on Pilates was printed the early 1980's and was penned by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this publication sets out 6 primary principles of Pilates, precision, concentration, control, centre, breathing and flow and those six principles have been chiefly adopted by present day Pilates instructors.
