ABOUT POWER PILATES

Power Pilates is the world’s leading educator of classical Pilates, whose goal has been to create a Pilates community in the spirit of Joseph Pilates – energetic, committed and ever evolving. It has emerged from a knowledge of the method; a passion for the art, and a recognition of its core value in advancing the fitness goals of its practitioners and rehabilitating pain sufferers.

The exercises follow the six principles upon which Joseph Pilates based his system – centering, control, concentration, flow, breath and precision. The spirit of Power Pilates is reflected in a continuing commitment to the integrity of the method; in the way training programs are organized, in its inspiring and motivating teaching method and in our personalized attention to our students.

The Pilates physical fitness system was designed and developed by Joseph Pilates, a German-born, physical-culturist who believed that mental and physical strength are inter-related. The son of a prize-winning gymnast father and naturopath mother, Joseph was highly influenced by both Western and Eastern forms of exercise, including yoga. Moving to New York City in 1926 with his wife, Clara, he opened his studio on Eighth Avenue in the same building as several dance studios and rehearsal spaces. This proximity eventually led dance luminaries such as George Balanchine, Martha Graham and Jerome Robbins to work with Joseph Pilates.
