History of Pilates

 
Pilates is a form of exercise named after its founder Joseph Pilates.
 
Joseph PilatesJoseph, being a German national living in England, was interned in a prisoner of war camp during WW1. He had a strong interest in physical exercise so he set about trying to assist injured prisoners with rehabilitation of their injuries. He resorted to using springs from hospital beds for gentle resistance exercises. The traditional Pilates Trapeze table (also called the Cadillac) resembles closely a typical old fashioned traction bed.
 
After the war Joseph moved to New York and further developed his ideas opening a studio in close proximity to many dance studios. He worked here until his death in 1967.
 

How does Pilates merge with current health research?

 
Joseph PilatesJoseph Pilates recognised the importance of using the inner core muscles he called these the 'powerhouse' and recognised the importance of continuous light contraction of these muscles during exercise and activity. Physiotherapists have taken contemporary research into core stability and applied this to traditional Pilates repertoire.
 
Today's modern research into back pain and the cause of this is continuing to reinforce his philosophies, as researchers are finding weakness and poor firing patterns in the deep spinal stabilizing musculature. Transverse abdominals and multifidis are often the cause of back pain when performing manual handling tasks. Poor outcomes after back pain and recurrent episodes of back pain have also been found to be closely related to insufficient rehabilitation and ongoing weakness in the core.
 
Our sister company, The Pilates Institute of Queensland trains physiotherapists and other health professionals in Pilates with a clinical rehabilitation slant. Our courses are accredited with the Australian Physiotherapy Association, ESSA and Fitness Australia. All our staff have undertaken this training giving them the expertise to assess and design client specific Pilates programmes
