Pilates is named after German-born physical trainer Joseph Hubertus Pilates. According to the Pilates Foundation, Pilates “…appears to have been a frail child, suffering from asthma, rickets and rheumatic fever. His drive and determination to overcome these ailments led him to become a competent gymnast, diver and skier.” The site further states: “Pilates emigrated to the USA in the early 1920s with his wife Clara, and together they developed and taught the method in their ‘body-conditioning gym’ in New York in 1926.”
Pilates, then, is a body-conditioning process that helps improve mood, strength, agility and flexibility. All Pilates classes also help participants achieve mental clarity, harmony and inner balance.
