Power Pilates Pilates movements focus on “the powerhouse” – the core muscle groups including the abdomen, lower back, hips, and buttocks. Together, these muscles form a person’s physical center. By initiating each movement from the central core of the torso and flowing outward to the extremities, Pilates creates a streamlined body, improves coordination and body awareness, combats stress and tension, and helps to correct posture imbalances. Joseph Pilates, the founder of the the Pilates technique, was a fragile and sickly child—he suffered from rickets, asthma, and rheumatic fever—but through study and training, he overcame his supposed limitations and went on to become strong, fit, and determined to share with others the techniques that allowed him to develop a healthy body and mind.
The Method has continued to grow, benefiting from advances in exercise science and from the extensive experience of those practicing the Pilates Method as students and teachers. In the midst of this dynamic body of knowledge, the core principles remain the same—a focus on the abdominal and other “powerhouse” muscles that support the spine, exercise routines with low repetitions of each exercise or move but high concentration, and a careful progression from preparatory moves to more complex and difficult ones.
