Product Description

Synopsis

This "Millennium Edition" includes the only two published works of Joseph Pilates. Newly copyrighted, edited and revised, this book makes available in one volume all of his early Twentieth Century philosophies, principles, and theories about health and fitness, as well as the exercises, poses, and instructions fundamental to his exciting fitness program. You will also learn every single one of his original 34 mat exercises taught to his own students. Living testimony to the validity of his own teachings, Joseph Pilates shares in these writings his fundamental tenets of posture, body mechanics, correct breathing, spinal flexibility, physical education, and his law of natural exercises.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Interesting 4 Feb 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is extremely interesting and, in places, it's quite amusing. The pictures are very good. An essential read for anybody with a keen interest in Pilates and where it originated from.

5.0 out of 5 stars Original book by Pilates 30 Jun 2011
By A.C.
Format:Paperback
This is like a history book about Mr Pilates and his exercising philosophy. Contains original exercises only, so not suitable for everybody. If you are not a Pilates Instructor this book won't give you a good explanation of the exercises - I would suggest you get something else to learn the moves.

Interesting and helpful in my training to be a Pilates instructor. But I would also recommend it to anyone who wants to get the most out of Pilates.
