Pilates was developed by Joseph Pilates in the 1920′s. The movements focused on balance, concentration, control, and breath. In Pilates, every movement originates from the core, The exercises promote uniform development of the body. This allows weaker muscles to develop instead of the body relying on the stronger muscles to do the work. Pilates is performed on spring loaded equipment or on the floor in small groups. Pilates focuses on what Joseph Pilates called “The Powerhouse”, specifically the deep abdominals, gluteals, and back, working from the inside out.
