Pilates is complete coordination of body, mind, and spirit. Through Pilates you first purposefully acquire complete control of your own body and then through proper repetition of its exercises you gradually and progressively acquire the natural rhythm and coordination associated with all of your subconscious activities. This true rhythm and control is observed both in domestic pets and wild animals – without known expectations. – Joseph Pilates
