What is Pilates? …
Please join us as we explore Pilates through the teachings of Joseph Pilates. This workshop will be hosted by our very own Tina Tricomi. Tina will guide us through some of the classical Pilates exercises and concepts; explaining the exercises in a little more detail for a better understanding for all those curious or looking to improve their current practice.
In Pilates, we attempt to lengthen the body, mindfully, with complete control in every single movement! Breath is very important too, just as it is in Yoga. Pilates is all about strengthening the core and that stretch we all need!! Those who practice consistently on a regular basis, report much improved posture, flexibility and balance. Joseph Pilates was very passionate about this and gave homework- he insisted on 10-15 minutes daily!
The first home-training manual for Pilates Mat exercises was published in 1945 and written by Joe Pilates himself. The Return to Life through Contrology, this was one of several books. He actually called this “his method”! He developed his method for boxers, not dancers, like many believe!
As Joe said: “Contrology is designed to give you suppleness, natural grace, and skill that will be unmistakably reflected in the way you walk, in the way you play, and in the way you work.”
