Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates in Germany.
Joseph Pilates called his method Contrology, because in his method the mind is used to control the muscles. The program focuses on the core postural muscles which will keep the body balanced, will strengthen the deep torso muscles and teach awareness of breath and alignment of the spine.
