You know that Pilates is a very popular form of exercise today. But, do you know exactly what Pilates is? Relax, now you will know what Pilates or method Pilates is. First of all, Pilates is the last name of a person. Joseph Pilates who was born in 1880 and died in 1967 invented a form of exercise that he called Contrology. Today, it is called the method Pilates. Method Pilates is exercises that are done on a Pilates machine or on the floor with a special mat that Joseph Pilates designed himself. Method Pilates uses its fundamentals in order to explain the body and mind connection and how they work together so well.
Now that you know what method Pilates is and how it works, I will tell you how to locate a Pilates studio. Go to a Pilates studio finder which can be found either in the Yellow Pages or the World Wide Web. I found a Pilates studio on the method pilates.com. If you wish to locate a Pilates studio online then, you will have to enter your address and some personal information. The Pilates studio finder will give you the four closest Pilates studios near your home. Please obtain as much information as possible. When you are choosing a new studio or a new instructor you should ask if the instructor is certified to teach method Pilates and by whom he or she was certified to tech method Pilates. If you have any medical issues or injuries, then please do ask if the method Pilates instructor is experienced in that area. This class seems hard to understand and to master as well. Just like yoga, method Pilates requires many different classes along with practice of all of the exercises that are a part of the Pilates credo. Both yoga and method Pilates concentrate on both people’s mind and body and how they work together Also, both yoga and method Pilates work to bring the mind and the body into perfect harmony with each other; and both yoga and method Pilates focus on eliminating stress and fatigue. It is a good idea to take either a yoga or method Pilates classes along with a healthy dose of swimming in order to maintain a healthy mind and body.
