Pilates is an exercise style that combines strength training and basic physical therapy. It is a mind-body philosophy as well as a principled system of exercises, which can be done on a mat or on special machines. Most people gravitate to Pilates after injury, as a compliment to dynamic exercise, or after quitting other exercise styles that are painful or ineffective. Pilates instructors undergo a rigorous, multi-year certification process, and Pilates mat exercises are renowned for their rehabilitative qualities. With Pilates, you can expect to build a very strong core, stabilize your spine and hips, and apply the principles of strength training that will rejuvenate your body and keep it healthy.

See the blue lines from Thomas Meyers classic text, Anatomy Trains.
