What is Pilates?: Pilates was introduced by a German physical trainer called Joseph Pilates during the first half of the Twentieth Century, and is a program of exercise that he referred to as "Contrology".

Joseph Pilates made a number of pieces of apparatus on which to practice his exercises, in the first instance with an ordinary mat (still most favoured nowadays) and moving on to apparatus which he named the Spine Corrector, the Cadillac, the Reformer, the Wunda Chair, the High "Electric" Chair, the Ladder Barrel and the Pedi-Pole.

Together with the various sorts of Pilates equipment you will find a similarly mystifying variety of Pilates methodologies available in Edgarley, each one with its specific instructors and enthusiasts. Among the various types of Pilates styles are Clinical Pilates (aimed towards a specific injury), Powerhouse Pilates (strengthening and stretching muscles while not adding bulk), Fletcher Pilates (combining movement and dance with traditional exercises), Stott Pilates (to restore the natural shape of the spine), Group Reformer Pilates (only using "The Reformer"), Contemporary Studio Pilates (done in properly equipped studios with experienced instructors), Classical Pilates (adhering rigidly to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced) and others.

Several of these came about because Joseph Pilates decided not to trademark his exercise program and his numerous students and followers subsequently went out and put together their own variants of Pilates, some went on to become leaders in their field and include among them the likes of Mary Pilates (the niece of Joseph Pilates), Jay Grimes, Eve Gentry, Carola Treir (the first to open her own Pilates studio), Kathy Grant, Bob Seed, Robert Fitzgerald, Maja Wollman, Mary Bowen, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Bruce King, Romana Kryzanowska, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Lolita San Miguel and others, these were later to be termed the "Pilates Elders".

The first contemporary book on Pilates was printed in nineteen eighty and was written by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this book sets out the six key aspects of Pilates, control, precision, centre, breathing, concentration and flow and those six principles have been mostly put into practice by modern day Pilates instructors.
