The Background of Pilates

A lot of people want to try Pilates but regularly ask me ‘What is Pilates? ‘ It’s founder – Joseph Pilates – was originally born in Germany in 1880, he was the son of a gymnast and naturopath. Joseph soon became very interested in fitness from a very early age, studying many forms of fitness as a young man including Body-Building, Zen, Yoga and Gymnastics and in addition 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 emigrated 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 towards the centre of the body, centring our thought processes, feeling and emotions to cultivate awareness of the way in which our body is moving.
  • Concentration – Concentrating on the quality of each individual movement, staying in the present and being aware of the overall movements our body is generating.
  • Control – Each movement is completed with complete muscle control, controlling every part of the body with centring as well as concentration.
  • Precision – Growing the precision of our own movements helps by using centring, concentration and control – assisting in the fine control of core muscles, and ability to resist injuries when doing other sports and pursuits.
  • Breathing – Joseph Pilates highlighted using constant breathing patterns in the exercises. Using the lungs to breath ‘laterally’ enabling the pelvic and core muscles to engage properly when we move. Breathing is integral to Pilates.
  • Flow – Flowing smooth movements, with precision and grace, are the essence of Pilates, building up control and precision not only in individual movements but throughout the exercise session.
