The History of Pilates
A lot of individuals want to sample Pilates but often ask me ‘What is Pilates exactly?’ It’s creator – 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 anatomy charts when he was a young man.
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.

Pilates Classes York is based around 6 crucial principles:
- Centering – Bringing focus to the center of your body, centering our thought processes, feeling and emotions to cultivate awareness of the way in which our body is moving.
- Concentration – Focusing on the quality of every individual movement, staying in the present and being aware of the overall movements our body is generating.
- Control – Each exercise is carried out with complete muscle control, controlling every part of the body with centering and concentration.
- Precision – Growing the precision of our own movements helps by using centering, concentration and control – helping with the fine control of core muscles, and ability to resist injuries when doing other sports and activities.
- Breathing – Joseph Pilates highlighted using consistent breathing patterns in his exercises. Using the lungs to breath ‘laterally’ allowing the pelvic and core muscle groups to engage properly when we move. Breathing is integral to Pilates.
- Flow – Flowing smooth actions, with precision and grace are the essence of Pilates, building up control and precision not only in single movements but through the exercise session.
