WHAT IS PILATES?
Pilates was designed by Joseph Pilates, who was a physical trainer and fitness enthusiast born in Germany, in 1883. He developed a system of exercises during the first half of the 20th century which were intended to strengthen the human mind and body. Joseph Pilates believed that mental and physical health are interrelated.
“Contrology” was Joseph Pilates’ preferred name for his method and it is based on the idea of muscle control. Nothing about the Pilates Method is haphazard. All exercises are done with the core muscles working to lift against gravity and the resistance of the springs and thereby control the movement of the body and the apparatus. “The Pilates Method teaches you to be in control of your body and not at its mercy.”

Pilates is often used in physical therapy to implement stretching and strengthening programs for sports and post-rehab phase after injuries.
Because Pilates is non-impact and the exercises can be modified to fit individual needs from beginners to advanced, it is an ideal fitness program to get back in shape after time off from exercising or after pregnancy or surgery. At Aerial Bodies, the exercises work the deepest muscles in the body to decompress, stabilize, and align the spine. They lengthen and tone without adding bulk, improve balance, posture and body awareness, diaphragmatic breathing, transverse muscle activation, neutral back and pelvic positioning, correct neck and scapular positioning and controlled movements. Pilates can help improve your tennis and golf game, rotational sports, and general fitness goals.
