One style of exercise that you could consider trying, if you haven't already done, is Pilates, a regime which aims to increase mental awareness, flexibility, posture, core strength, body condition, muscle strength and your sense of balance by the use of certain apparatus, from readily available mats to quite complex equipment.

What is Pilates?: Pilates was formulated by a physical trainer from Germany, named Joseph Pilates in the 1920's, and is an exercise system which he named "Contrology". Pilates became increasingly popular towards the end of the 20th Century and is widely practiced internationally, although most common in regions such as the UK, the United States and Canada.

Joseph Pilates developed some rather strange pieces of apparatus for students to practice his exercise techniques, at first with just a simple mat (still the most used at present) and moving on to apparatus which he named the Wunda Chair, the Cadillac, the High "Electric" Chair, the Ladder Barrel, the Reformer, the Spine Corrector and the Pedi-Pole.

Combined with the various types of equipment you will discover there are an equally bewildering variety of Pilates methodologies on offer in Stanwick, each with its particular instructors and aficionados. Numbered among the numerous types of Pilates styles are Fletcher Pilates (integrating movement and dance with traditional exercises), Contemporary Studio Pilates (practiced in fully equipped studios with skillful instructors), Group Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Power Pilates (strengthening and stretching the muscles without adding bulk), Clinical Pilates (aimed towards a specific injury), Stott Pilates (for restoring the natural curvature of the spine), Mat Pilates (still the most favoured), Classical Pilates (keeping rigidly to the methods of Joseph Pilates) and other less popular ones.

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

The first up-to-date book on Pilates was published in nineteen eighty and penned by Gail Eisen and Frank Philip Friedman, this publication sets out six major principles of Pilates, centre, breathing, concentration, control, precision and flow and these 6 principles have been largely followed by today's Pilates instructors.
