What is Pilates method?


Method of War

The Pilates method was created by the German sportsman, Joseph Hubertus Pilates , in the post WW1 era. Applying his knowledge in physiotherapy, ballet, traumatology, yoga and gymnastics, this Pilates method was born, whose objective was the rehabilitation of wounded combatants of war.

It was based on the use of combinations of different sports and physical fields and machines created and designed by Pilates itself, and could even treat patients immobilized in a special bed that he designed.

Beyond Rehabilitation

Pilates is not only a rehabilitative method that favors the recovery of an area of ​​the body but a method that uses exercises that focus on strengthening all the body muscles , improving the flexibility , balance and coordination of those who practice their Pilates classes.

The traditional Pilates method is practiced in two formats: ground trainingusing the body’s own weight to perform the exercises and training with machines and accessories that help to work with less weight than the body has.

No format is more “powerful” or more effective than the other. The two Pilates formats can be used in a complementary way to achieve better results.In Balance Studio we do Pilates classes in Barcelona with both formats.
