an exercise program that you look forward to, that engages
you, and that leaves you refreshed and alert with a feeling
of physical and mental well-being.The Pilates Method (pronounced
puh-LAH-teez) of body conditioning will do all this...and
in the 1920s by the legendary physical trainer and founder
of The New York Pilates Studio®, Joseph H. Pilates, The Pilates Method
is an exercise system focused on improving flexibility and
strength for the total body without building bulk. Not surprisingly,
some of the first people to use the Pilates Method were dancers

on specifically designed exercise apparatus and supervised
by extensively trained teachers.
