Pilates Classes Hartlebury Worcestershire: If you've been trying various sorts of exercise in Hartlebury, but have failed to gain the outcome which you were seeking, it could be time to try something completely different. One style of exercise which you may look at trying out, if you've not already done, is Pilates, a regimen that aims to improve core strength, posture, flexibility, body awareness, body condition, physical strength and your sense of balance by the use of special apparatus, from readily available mats to much more sophisticated equipment.

Just What is Pilates?: Pilates was invented by a German physical trainer called Joseph Pilates in the first half of the Twentieth Century, and is an exercise program which he termed "Contrology". Pilates became especially popular in the latter part of the Twentieth Century and is practiced throughout the world, though most common in countries like Canada, the British Isles and the United States.

Joseph Pilates invented certain pieces of apparatus on which to practice his workouts, starting with a plain mat (still most favoured today) and advancing to apparatus that he named the High "Electric" Chair, the Reformer, the Wunda Chair, the Spine Corrector, the Ladder Barrel, the Cadillac and the Pedi-Pole.

In addition to the various types of apparatus are an equally bewildering variety of Pilates methodologies on offer in Hartlebury, each with its specific instructors and aficionados. Among the many forms of Pilates styles are Mat Pilates (still the most favoured), Power Pilates (strengthening and stretching muscles while not adding bulk), Group Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Classical Pilates (sticking rigidly to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural shape of the spine), Clinical Pilates (directed at a specific injury), Contemporary Studio Pilates (done in fully equipped studios with experienced instructors), Fletcher Pilates (combining dance and movement with traditional exercises) and others.

Most of these were developed due to the fact that Joseph Pilates failed to trademark his methods and his many followers and students later went out and conceived their own personal variations of Pilates, some later became giants in their field and include among them the likes of Kathy Grant, Carola Treir (the first to open her own studio), Robert Fitzgerald, Bruce King, Maja Wollman, Eve Gentry, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Lolita San Miguel, Jay Grimes, Mary Bowen, Bob Seed, Romana Kryzanowska, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice) and others, these were later referred to as the "Pilates Elders".

The first contemporary book about Pilates was released the early 1980's and was penned by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this book outlines the six fundamental concepts of Pilates, control, centre, breathing, concentration, precision and flow and those six principles have been fundamentally implemented by present day Pilates instructors.
