Editorial Reviews

Joseph Pilates developed a unique fitness system combining aspects of martial arts, gymnastics, yoga and ancient Greek training techniques, focusing on the coordination of the body, mind and spirit. Pilates practiced what he called "The Art of Contrology" until his death in 1968, at the age of 88. He left his studio - and his legacy as a trainer, teacher and innovator - to his student and colleague Romana Kryzanowska. Today, the conditioning system bears his name, is one of the most popular and fastest growing fitness methods in the world. Known simply as PILATES, its leading teacher and practitioner is also recognized by only one name, ROMANA.

For nearly half a century Romana has traveled around the world, teaching this true Pilates method that she learned directly from "Uncle Joe". Her clients include athletes, dancers and celebrities. Even the most successful Pilates teachers and other fitness experts regularly come to Romana for advanced instruction and certification in the Pilates method. Now, for the first time, Romana has created a video series for home use.

There are three words to describe Pilates:

- Stretch
- Strength
- Control
