Pilates Classes Washingborough Lincolnshire: If you have been trying various sorts of exercise in Washingborough, but have not realized the results which you were striving for, maybe it is time for you to try something completely different. One sort of exercise which you might look at trying, if you haven't already done so, is Pilates, a regime that was invented to enhance body awareness, flexibility, posture, muscle strength, core strength, body condition and your sense of balance by the use of special apparatus, from the ubiquitous mat to really complex equipment.

What is Pilates?: Pilates was invented by a physical trainer and gymnast from Germany, named Joseph Pilates in the first half of the Twentieth Century, and was an exercise technique that he termed "Contrology". Pilates became increasingly popular in the latter part of the Twentieth Century and is practiced globally, although more popular in nations such as the United States, Canada and the British Isles.

Joseph Pilates made elaborate pieces of apparatus on which to practice his routines, in the first instance with just a simple mat (still the most used at present) and moving on to apparatus which he called the Cadillac, the Wunda Chair, the Ladder Barrel, the Reformer, the Spine Corrector, the High "Electric" Chair and the Pedi-Pole.

Combined with the different types of equipment you will find a correspondingly mystifying assortment of Pilates methodologies available in Washingborough, each one with its specific instructors and followers. Amongst the various forms of Pilates styles are Classical Pilates (sticking rigidly to the methods of Joseph Pilates), Stott Pilates (aimed at restoring the natural curves of the spine), Fletcher Pilates (incorporating dance and movement with traditional techniques), Reformer Pilates (which only uses "The Reformer"), Power Pilates (stretching and strengthening the muscles without adding bulk), Contemporary Studio Pilates (carried out in properly equipped studios with skilled instructors), Mat Pilates (still the most favoured), Clinical Pilates (aimed at a specific injury) and other less popular ones.

A lot of these came into being because Joseph Pilates chose not to trademark his techniques and his various followers and students then went out and formulated their own specific variations of Pilates, some went on to become frontrunners in their field and include the likes of Robert Fitzgerald, Ron Fletcher (a Martha Graham dancer), Clara Pilates (Joseph's wife), Jay Grimes, Lolita San Miguel, Bruce King, Eve Gentry, Kathy Grant, Mary Bowen, Bob Seed, Mary Pilates (the niece of Joseph Pilates), Maja Wollman, Romana Kryzanowska, Carola Treir (the first to open her own studio) and others, these were later known as the "Pilates Elders".

The first modern day book about Pilates was released the early 1980's and was penned by Frank Philip Friedman and Gail Eisen, this guide sets out the 6 main aspects of Pilates, control, centre, precision, concentration, breathing and flow and these six principles have been fundamentally used by modern day Pilates instructors.
