The Pilates method is a unique system of stretching and strengthening exercises developed nearly 100 years ago by Joseph Pilates. Exercises are taught with a unique and dynamic rhythm and progression occurs as mastery of the exercises can be done with control and precision. Pilates is ideally taught in private lessons, or in classes with very small groups. The instructors teach by verbal cues and instruction only, never by doing the class with the students.
Pilates is 'a unique and indivisible system' based on an ordered and corrective sequence of exercises which flow from one to the other. Modifications are available for those that need it but other modalities or random exercises are not required to be added to the system itself as it is cohesive and intelligent and helps the body to repair itself.
