Pilates is an exercise system developed in Europe and refined in the United States by Joseph Pilates during the course of his lifetime.

The original name of Pilates was Contrology: The Art of Control. The method was created in the 1900's and developed over the course of Joseph Pilates' lifetime. After Joe passed away in 1967 Contrology was renamed Pilates. Joe believed that by moving with control, following a specific order of exercises and using your breath properly you could rid yourself of chronic pain and instabilities. A steady prectice of Pilates improves every functional aspect your life.

Pilates is similar to yoga with a focus on each movement coming from the core or abdominal region. Students of the method build strength and develop control and endurance in the body. The exercise system uses body weight and equipment springs for resistance to engage your entire body during a session. The system utilizes a variety of equipment, such as the Pilates Reformer, Cadillac, Ladder Barrel, High Chair, and Wunda Chair. The pieces of apparatus help clients improve their 4 S's: Strength, Stability, Stretch and Stamina.

At Power Pilates, we provide a Classical Pilates Teacher Trainer program. This renowned foundation program teaches the work as Joseph Pilates intended it to be taught. Joe passed his teachings down through a lineage to the Teacher Trainer Mentors within the Power Pilates organization.

About Beginner Mat Teacher Training
The weekend training was amazing! The teacher was phenomenal, and I learned much more than I expected to. You all shared a wealth of knowledge in a wonderfully supportive environment, and I left feeling completely charged up and inspired. My greatest challenge was (and always has been) speaking in front of groups and that experience alone afforded me the greatest growth! So thank you, I hope to come back as often as my schedule allows to take classes at Power Pilates, and continue to grow as a teacher.

About Intermediate Mat Teacher Training
I definitely had a great experience during my training. The instructor was great! She was really positive and took a lot of time to get to know her students and help us along the way. Again, the weekend was invigorating and intense. There is always something more to learn! I love how this training helps us teach! Its all about your student! I feel like I got a lot out of the weekend and can't wait to further my education! Thank you for following up!
