What is Pilates?: Pilates was created by a gymnast and physical trainer from Germany, called Joseph Pilates during the first half of the 20th Century, and is a program of exercise that he termed "Contrology". Pilates became particularly popular in the late Twentieth Century and is widely practiced around the globe, although is more popular in regions like Great Britain, Canada and the United States.

Joseph Pilates invented some rather strange pieces of apparatus on which to practice his workout routines, starting with a plain mat (still most used today) and advancing to apparatus that he called the Spine Corrector, the Reformer, the Wunda Chair, the Cadillac, the High "Electric" Chair, the Ladder Barrel and the Pedi-Pole.

As well as the various designs of equipment you will find a similarly baffling variety of Pilates methodologies on offer in Ilfracombe, each one with its particular instructors and enthusiasts. Amongst the various types of Pilates styles are Clinical Pilates (focusing on a specific injury), Fletcher Pilates (combining movement and dance with traditional exercises), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural shape of the spine), Classical Pilates (keeping closely to the techniques of Joseph Pilates), Power Pilates (strengthening and stretching the muscles while not adding bulk), Group Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Mat Pilates (still the most favoured), Contemporary Studio Pilates (done in properly equipped studios with experienced instructors) and other more obscure ones.

Most of these were developed due to the fact that Joseph Pilates didn't trademark his methods and his many students and followers eventually went out and created their own particular variants of Pilates, some later became giants in their field and include among them the likes of Mary Pilates (Joseph Pilates' neice), Kathy Grant, Romana Kryzanowska, Maja Wollman, Jay Grimes, Lolita San Miguel, Carola Treir (the first to open up her own studio), Bruce King, Bob Seed, Clara Pilates (Joseph's wife), Mary Bowen, Eve Gentry, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Robert Fitzgerald and others, these were later referred to as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern day book about Pilates was printed the early 1980's and written by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this book sets out 6 primary aspects of Pilates, centre, breathing, precision, concentration, control and flow and these 6 principles have been fundamentally followed by today's Pilates instructors.
