Joseph Pilates Original Exercises!
The original matwork sequence for everyman and woman pre-dating and then evolving, circa 1930s, 40s and 50s, alongside Joseph Pilates' teaching for invalids and injured athletes/dancers using the innovative equipment in his first movement therapy studios.
An ordered class of 36 tough but therapeutic movement sequences using only a mat to offer a little padding and no other equipment, performed in its original form in both the open air at Summer camp and under cover in city movement studios. A glorious and clever version of the 1930s fitness class.
Original concept by Joseph Pilates, 20th century bodywork genius.
