Exactly What is Pilates?: Pilates was developed by a physical trainer from Germany, named Joseph Pilates in the early Twentieth Century, and is an exercise technique which he named "Contrology".

Joseph Pilates produced a number of devices for people to practice his routines, starting with an ordinary mat (still most favoured at present) and moving on to apparatus which he named the High "Electric" Chair, the Wunda Chair, the Reformer, the Spine Corrector, the Ladder Barrel, the Cadillac and the Pedi-Pole.

Along with the different kinds of Pilates equipment you will find a correspondingly perplexing assortment of Pilates methodologies available in Glassenbury, each with its specific instructors and enthusiasts. Numbered amongst the many types of Pilates styles are Fletcher Pilates (integrating movement and dance with traditional techniques), Group Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Stott Pilates (for restoring the natural shape of the spine), Power Pilates (stretching and strengthening muscles without adding bulk), Classical Pilates (sticking rigidly to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Contemporary Studio Pilates (practiced in fully equipped studios with skilled instructors), Clinical Pilates (aimed at a specific injury), Mat Pilates (still the most favoured) and other more obscure ones.

Most of these were developed due to the fact that Joseph Pilates failed to trademark his exercise program and his various students and followers ultimately went out and established their own specific versions of the regime, some went on to become leaders in their field and include among them the likes of Romana Kryzanowska, Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Maja Wollman, Bob Seed, Eve Gentry, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Robert Fitzgerald, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Jay Grimes, Bruce King, Mary Bowen, Carola Treir (the 1st to open up her own studio), Lolita San Miguel, Kathy Grant and others, these were later known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern book on Pilates was published the early 1980's and was authored by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this guide sets out the 6 key principles of Pilates, control, breathing, precision, concentration, centre and flow and those 6 principles have been generally used by modern day Pilates instructors.
