What is Pilates?
Pilates is an exercise form created by Joseph Pilates. It focuses on building strength and flexibility with control. Exercises are done in a slow and controlled manner, with lots of repetitions and connections with the breath. Equipment is often used to add resistance, assist with the exercise or to progress the exercise, or simply to make it fun.
