Pilates Classes Exeter Devon: If you've been doing various sorts of exercise in Exeter, but have failed to get the results that you were seeking, perhaps it's time for you to try something completely different. One method of exercise that you could think about trying out, if you have not previously done, is Pilates, which was invented to increase mental awareness, muscle strength, posture, core strength, flexibility, body condition and balance through the use of certain apparatus, from simple mats to fairly sophisticated equipment.

What is Pilates?: Pilates was developed by a gymnast and physical trainer from Germany, called Joseph Pilates in the 1920's, and is a method of exercise which he termed "Contrology". Pilates became especially popular in the latter part of the 20th Century and is widely practiced globally, though more prevalent in countries such as Great Britain, Canada and the United States.

Joseph Pilates made distinctive devices for students to practice his workout routines, at first with a simple mat (still the most used at present) and advancing to apparatus which he called the Wunda Chair, the Ladder Barrel, the High "Electric" Chair, the Spine Corrector, the Reformer, the Cadillac and the Pedi-Pole.

Along with the various types of Pilates equipment are an equally baffling variety of Pilates methodologies available in Exeter, each one with its specific instructors and enthusiasts. Among the numerous forms of Pilates styles are Stott Pilates (for restoring the natural curves of the spine), Clinical Pilates (directed at a specific injury), Group Reformer Pilates (which just uses "The Reformer"), Power Pilates (strengthening and stretching the muscles while not adding bulk), Contemporary Studio Pilates (carried out in properly equipped studios with seasoned instructors), Mat Pilates (still the most popular), Fletcher Pilates (incorporating movement and dance with traditional exercises), Classical Pilates (adhering closely to the methods of Joseph Pilates) and other less popular ones.

Many of those came into being due to the fact that Joseph Pilates never trademarked his exercise system and his various students and followers eventually went off and formulated their own specific variations of Pilates, some later became giants in their field and include the likes of Jay Grimes, Lolita San Miguel, Mary Bowen, Kathy Grant, Bob Seed, Maja Wollman, Bruce King, Eve Gentry, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Robert Fitzgerald, Romana Kryzanowska, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Carola Treir (the first to open up her own studio) and others, these were later known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern day book on Pilates was released in nineteen eighty and was authored by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this publication sets out 6 key aspects of Pilates, precision, control, centre, breathing, concentration and flow and those six principles have been mostly followed by today's Pilates instructors.
