Pilates Classes Plymouth Devon: If you have been trying out various types of exercise in Plymouth, but have not yet attained the results which you were seeking, it may be high time to try something completely different. One type of exercise that you could consider trying, if you have not previously attempted it, is Pilates, a regime that was created to enhance flexibility, body awareness, core strength, posture, physical strength, body condition and your sense of balance through the use of special apparatus, from readily available mats to really complex equipment.

Just What is Pilates?: Pilates was created by a physical trainer and gymnast from Germany, called Joseph Pilates during the first part of the 20th Century, and was a program of exercise that he termed "Contrology". Pilates became increasingly popular in the latter part of the Twentieth Century and is practiced all over the globe, though more widespread in countries such as the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada.

Joseph Pilates built various pieces of equipment on which to practice his exercise techniques, in the first instance with a plain mat (still most favoured at present) and progressing to apparatus that he named the Reformer, the High "Electric" Chair, the Spine Corrector, the Ladder Barrel, the Cadillac, the Wunda Chair and the Pedi-Pole.

Along with the various sorts of apparatus are a similarly bewildering variety of Pilates methodologies on offer in Plymouth, each with its own instructors and enthusiasts. Numbered amongst the various kinds of Pilates styles are Mat Pilates (still the most widely practiced), Contemporary Studio Pilates (carried out in fully equipped studios with professional instructors), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural curvature of the spine), Fletcher Pilates (combining movement and dance with traditional exercises), Clinical Pilates (targeting a specific injury), Classical Pilates (adhering rigidly to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Group Reformer Pilates (using only "The Reformer"), Power Pilates (strengthening and stretching the muscles while not adding bulk) and other less well known ones.

A lot of these came about because Joseph Pilates did not trademark his methods and his many followers and students subsequently went off and established their own personal variants of the program, some later became giants in their field and include the likes of Jay Grimes, Robert Fitzgerald, Eve Gentry, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Lolita San Miguel, Mary Pilates (the niece of Joseph Pilates), Carola Treir (the 1st to open her own studio), Bob Seed, Clara Pilates (the wife of Joseph), Maja Wollman, Kathy Grant, Bruce King, Romana Kryzanowska, Mary Bowen and others, these were later to be named the "Pilates Elders".

The first up-to-date book on Pilates was printed the early 1980's and was penned by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this publication describes the 6 primary concepts of Pilates, precision, control, concentration, breathing, centre and flow and those six principles have been chiefly followed by present day Pilates instructors.
