Pilates Classes Rowfoot Northumberland: If you've been trying various kinds of exercise in Rowfoot, but have not accomplished the outcome which you were hoping for, maybe it is time for you to try something totally different. One form of exercise that you could think about trying, if you've not already done so, is Pilates, a regime that was created to increase physical strength, posture, flexibility, core strength, body awareness, body condition and stability using certain apparatus, from the ubiquitous mat to rather sophisticated equipment.

Exactly What is Pilates?: Pilates was formulated by a gymnast and physical trainer from Germany, called Joseph Pilates in the early Twentieth Century, and was a program of exercising that he called "Contrology". Pilates became very popular at the end of the Twentieth Century and is widely practiced internationally, though is more widespread in nations such as the British Isles, Canada and the United States.

Joseph Pilates formulated particular pieces of apparatus on which to practice his routines, at the start with an ordinary mat (still most popular today) and advancing to apparatus which he called the High "Electric" Chair, the Ladder Barrel, the Cadillac, the Wunda Chair, the Reformer, the Spine Corrector and the Pedi-Pole.

In addition to the various types of equipment you will find there are a correspondingly mystifying variety of Pilates methodologies offered in Rowfoot, each one with its specific instructors and followers. Amongst the many forms of Pilates styles are Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural shape of the spine), Contemporary Studio Pilates (done in properly equipped studios with skilled instructors), Clinical Pilates (targeting a specific injury), Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Fletcher Pilates (combining dance and movement with traditional techniques), Classical Pilates (keeping closely to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Mat Pilates (still the most favoured), Powerhouse Pilates (strengthening and stretching the muscles without adding bulk) and others.

A lot of these came about due to the fact that Joseph Pilates never trademarked his techniques and his numerous students and followers eventually went out and developed their own individual variants of Pilates, some went on to become frontrunners in their field and include among them the likes of Mary Pilates (the niece of Joseph Pilates), Robert Fitzgerald, Bruce King, Maja Wollman, Kathy Grant, Bob Seed, Clara Pilates (Joseph's wife), Carola Treir (the first to open up her own Pilates studio), Eve Gentry, Jay Grimes, Lolita San Miguel, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Mary Bowen, Romana Kryzanowska and others, these were later known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern day book about Pilates was published the early 1980's and penned by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this guide sets out six key concepts of Pilates, precision, control, centre, concentration, breathing and flow and these six principles have been commonly used by modern day Pilates instructors.
