First popularized in the 1920s and adopted by dance greats George Balanchine and Martha Graham, the Pilates technique is gaining worldwide recognition as an effective holistic exercise system. It combines elements of yoga and classical dance with principles of concentration and exercise that increase body awareness, release tension, and realign the body. The program is particularly popular with people who are moving away from the "no pain, no gain" mentality of the workout gym and seeking alternative methods of fitness. Pilates at Home offers readers a clear explanation of this conditioning system. Color photographs show users how to coordinate body, mind, and spirit by working with the body's muscles -- not on or against them. Sections on posture, breathing, warm-up exercises, and the use of weights can be easily applied to everyday life.
Pilates Workbook offers a straightforward way to learn Joseph Pilates's authentic techniques. Unlike other books based on Pilates's teachings, this book illustrates the core matwork movements exactly as he intended them to be performed. Divided into two sections, Pilates Workbook begins with 15 two-page spreads that answer readers' questions about Pilates and the core principles of the program. The bulk of the book is then dedicated to the exercises. Readers learn each movement by simply following the photographic sequences and explanatory captions. There are also abbreviated movements to help beginners get started.
