HISTORY OF PILATES
The pilates exercise system was developed in the 1920s by a german-born fitness enthusiast by the name of Joseph Pilates.
Joseph devised a specific series of movements that worked the mind and muscles together while working as a orderly at an infirmary in World War I by rigging hospital beds to help bedridden patients do exercises.
These exercises are what we now know today as pilates exercises.
In 1926, Joseph and his wife moved to New York and opened a studio close to the New York City Ballet. Joseph developed a following among dancers for his ability to rehabilitate them from injury and create long lean strong bodies without the added bulky muscles.
Mat pilates didn't get popular until the 1990s despite being performed in studios among elite athletes
WHAT IS MAT PILATES?
The exercises in the mat Pilates class focus on strengthening the muscles of the hips, back, abdominals, and glutes.
These are known in Pilates as the powerhouse muscles.
These exercises look simple but require the right kind of activation to stabilise the torso and concentration to keep these muscles activated throughout the exercises.
Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong posture, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit
