Joseph Pilates designed particular pieces of apparatus on which to practice his routines, at the start with a simple mat (still most used at present) and advancing to apparatus which he called the Ladder Barrel, the Cadillac, the High "Electric" Chair, the Wunda Chair, the Spine Corrector, the Reformer and the Pedi-Pole.

As well as the different kinds of Pilates apparatus you will find an equally confusing variety of Pilates methodologies offered in Cumnor, each with its particular instructors and aficionados. Numbered amongst the various kinds of Pilates styles are Group Reformer Pilates (using only "The Reformer"), Power Pilates (stretching and strengthening the muscles while not adding bulk), Stott Pilates (to restore the natural curvature of the spine), Fletcher Pilates (combining movement and dance with traditional techniques), Contemporary Studio Pilates (practiced in fully equipped studios with qualified instructors), Clinical Pilates (focusing on a specific injury), Mat Pilates (still the most popular), Classical Pilates (adhering closely to the methods of Joseph Pilates) and other less well known ones.

A lot of these came about due to the fact that Joseph Pilates decided not to trademark his techniques and his various students and followers later diversified and created their own personal versions of Pilates, some became leaders in their field and include the likes of Mary Bowen, Robert Fitzgerald, Eve Gentry, Bob Seed, Bruce King, Jay Grimes, Mary Pilates (the niece of Joseph Pilates), Romana Kryzanowska, Carola Treir (the 1st to open her own studio), Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Kathy Grant, Clara Pilates (Joseph's wife), Maja Wollman, Lolita San Miguel and others, these became known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern book on Pilates was released in nineteen eighty and authored by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this book sets out the 6 fundamental aspects of Pilates, centre, control, precision, breathing, concentration and flow and these 6 principles have been largely adopted by modern day Pilates instructors.
