Product Description:

The Pilates Bible appeals to readers who want a comprehensive understanding of this exercise method--its origin, principles, key concepts, and benefits--in addition to detailed instructions, complete with beautiful step-by-step color pictures, describing how to practise Pilates safely and effectively. Joseph Pilates (1880-1967), who was plagued by illness as a child in Germany, developed his unique movement system over many years by combining observations about what energized and aligned the body with fitness techniques of his day. In 1925, he immigrated to the United States and set up a studio to introduce his holistic technique. The system is based on six principles: breathing, centering, control, concentration, precision, and flowing movement.

Product Description:

The Pilates method is not a registered trademark, which is why all teachers can modify the method to their liking and adapt it to their aptitudes. The only requirements are that the method remake to these basic principles. 1) First, the breathing. It must always be kept under control and it is the teacher who has to ride it like in yoga. In Pilates, unlike what happens in Yoga, air entering the nose but you eject both the nose and the mouth. Every Pilates exercise has its own rhythm of breathing. In Pilates, you breathe in when you start the exercise and the time of greatest effort you exhale. Watching our videos you will learn exercises simply to breathe properly. 2) It 's very important center of gravity, which is the Power House. According Pilates is that there is no central control and strength of the entire body. 3) is fundamental accuracy: all movements must be as close as possible to perfection, in a continuous exchange of feedback between student and teacher. 4) It takes the highest level of attention and concentration for each year. 5) Any part of the body must be controlled. Our mind must always be vigilant and in control of every part of our body. 6) All the above principles are summarized in the flow.
