about pilates equipment
Originally created by Joseph Pilates, who was an acrobat, martial artist and was incredibly passionate and curious about the human body, in particular how the movement affects our bodies. He was a firm believer that complex, mindful multi-directional movement is an ultimate healer. Joseph was very passionate anatomist, whose priority was quality of movement and attention to deeper layers of the muscles, which we refer to as ‘core’ nowadays.
Pilates is an low impact exercise system, thus ideal form of exercise for everyone, which is aimed at improving strength, flexibility and mobility at the same time. Even though the exercises can seem simple they are can be quite challenging and are incredibly effective.
