The History of Joseph Pilates
Lots of people want to sample Pilates but regularly ask me ‘What is Pilates?’ It’s founder – Joseph Pilates – was born in Germany in 1880, he was the son of a gymnast and naturopath. Joseph soon became very interested in health from a very early age, studying many forms of fitness as a young man including Body-Building, Zen, Yoga and Gymnastics and he also posed for anatomical charts when he was a teenager.
Joseph Pilates then moved to England in 1912 working as a Boxer and for Scotland Yard in the form of a self defence trainer. Still living in England when the First World War erupted, Pilates was sent to a Prisoner of War Camp on the Isle of Man due to being German. This is where his unique methods were born. Joeseph Pilates had time on his hands to develop his revolutionary methodologies during his internment, he spent his days developing a system of physical exercises and training his fellow inmates in the method which he named “Contrology”.
It is sometimes claimed so many who became injured or ill survived in the camp with Joseph Pilates because of their good physical shape, thanks to Joseph Pilates and following his Method. After the war Joseph Pilates moved back to Germany and collaborated with experts in Dance and Physical Exercise but he didn’t stay in Germany long as he refused to train members of the German Army, instead he emmigrated to the USA. On the outbound journey he met Clara, who would be his future wife and help assist him in developing his method further. On their arrival in New York, Joe and Clara set up a studio to teach his methods that today are known as Pilates.

- Centering – Bringing focus to the center of your body, centering our thoughts, feeling and emotions to develop awareness of the way in which our body is moving.
