Pilates, also called Pilates method, is an intelligent, holistic and whole body training, which Joseph Hubertus Pilates developed at the beginning of the 20th century. He developed a system of exercises which were intended to strengthen the human mind and body. He believed that mental and physical health were interrelated. He accompanied his method with a variety of equipment, for which he used the term “apparatus”. Each apparatus was designed to help accelerate the process of stretching, strengthening, body alignment and increased core strength started by the mat work.

What is special about this fitness method?

It takes into account personal prerequisites and physical potential. That is why it is perfect for everyone who is looking for a sport that promises sustainable success.

Contrary to the widespread view that yoga is a method of soft relaxation gymnastics, Iyengar Yoga is an intensive training that involves the body as well as the mind. It is based on the extensive practice of Asanas (yoga postures) and of Pranayama (yogic breathing).

What does Pilates do?

If you do it, you will quickly feel many positive effects:

  • Rapid improvement in posture and mobility
  • Reduction of stress
  • Improvement of coordination and fine motor skills
  • Performance increase of body and mind
  • Fast and sustainable muscle building
  • Better blood circulation of muscles and joints
  • Increase of physical perceptiveness

What are the six principles of Pilates?

  • Concentration: Pilates demands intense focus, the way that exercises are done is more important than the exercises themselves
  • Control: “Contrology” was Joseph Pilates’ preferred name for his method, and it was based on the idea of muscle control. All exercises are done with control, the muscles working to lift against gravity and the resistance of the springs and thereby control the movement of the body and the apparatus.
  • Center: The Core / Powerhouse allows a coordinated movement of trunk, arms and legs with low energy effort. With the power that comes from the Core / Powerhouse, you also improve your body language and charisma.
  • Flow: the exercises should flow into each other.
  • Precision: Precision is essential to correct Pilates. The focus is on doing one precise and perfect movement, rather than many halfhearted ones.
  • Breathing: The concentrated breathing calms the mind and stimulates your concentration.
