The Pilates Method was named after its German founder, Joseph Pilates; developing his work from a strong personal experience in fitness. Unhealthy as a child, he studied many kinds of self-improvement systems of western & eastern practices. Joseph was inspired by the ancient Greek ideal that man could be perfected with the development of body, mind, and spirit.
The term “Classical Pilates ” indicates that the exercises are of the original Joseph Pilates’ Method and in the order he intended: the mat work in combination with specifically developed Pilates equipment. Each piece was designed by Joseph himself to help accelerate the process of stretching, strengthening, improving the body’s alignment and increasing the core strength.
Pilates was the first sport/ physical system I fell in love with. Through the practice, I established the first connection to my body; becoming more aware of my physical and mental health. The Method made me really strong as it made me discover my life-force & endurance. It brought the first huge change and transformation to my body and my life. I studied and am certified in the Classical Pilates Method/Romana’s Pilates and have been teaching this method since 2005.
