Pilates Exercise - Health Spa Directories Canada In the early 1900s, German athlete Joseph Pilates began experimenting with an exercise system that would assist him in his recovery from severe asthma.

He designed a series of exercises to balance the body, improve ease of motion and promote mental and physical harmony. While working as a nurse, he tried to help WW1 hospital patients recovering from their injuries by attaching springs to their beds, enabling them to start exercising their arms and legs even before they could walk.

The ‘Reformer’ and other types of apparatus used in modern Pilates studios are all based on the principles of exercise developed by Joseph Pilates all those years ago. He came to the United Sates in 1920s and started his own studio with equipment he designed. He taught his system to dancers and also used it to rehabilitate people with injuries and disabilities.

Once the secret of dancers and athletes, the Pilates method is now gaining rapid popularity among the fitness-seeking public. One of the most important benefits of Pilates exercise is the effect on the mind/body connection. The exercises are gentle and peaceful, requiring full concentration, they work from the inside out to develop deep core strength, flexibility and balance
