Pilates was created by German-born Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s and incorporates elements of yoga, martial arts, gymnastics and dance. Initially it was adopted by professional dancers in the US as an effective form of recovery after injury.
Pilates is an exercise system that focuses on teaching you a new movement skill, gradually developing your body awareness, increasing your strength and flexibility, improving your posture and coordination.
