“Perfect Balance of Body and Mind, is that quality in civilised man, which not only gives him superiority over the savage and animal kingdom, but furnishes him with all the physical and mental powers that are dispensable for attaining the goal of Mankind – health and happiness.” (Pilates 1934)



Pilates is a way of connecting and conditioning the whole being, body and mind. Pilates is a mind–body fitness program named after its founder, Joseph H. Pilates. This fitness program is designed to improve flexibility, strength, coordination, balance and posture.
