Although it has been practised for some eighty years in the USA, this method (from the name of its inventor) only became truly known here when the American showbiz people adopted it. A mixture of yoga and gymnastics, the Pilates Method combines, at one and the same time, concentration of mind, precision of movement and control of breathing. On the other hand, by a gently carried out system of stretching and elongation, it provides flexibility that triumphs over tension and stress together with optimal maintenance of the body, offering the triple advantage of being a complete sport, a supplement to all other physical exercise and a practice used for purposes of rehabilitation.
