A Little Pilates History

Did you know that what we refer to as the Reformer, Joe Pilates called the “gymnastic apparatus,” which he had patented in 1925?

When I read this recently in Pilates Style Magazine it connected a lot of dots. Some of the elders I have worked with are pretty strict about how you get on and off the equipment. They put the same importance on it that is placed on a landing in gymnastics.

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.
