Classical Pilates

The original Classical Pilates mat-work programme is a sequence of 34 exercises , which were first set out in Joseph Pilates’ book Return to Life through Contrology (1934). The sequence was designed to move the body through a full range of movement, with each exercise flowing into the next. Although the sequence builds intelligently with more foundational exercises at the beginning and more complex exercises towards the end – the whole sequence , as originally set out by Pilates, was designed for Pilates’ clientele at that time, mainly professional dancers and boxers. This means that for most “normal” people in the 21st century the classic sequence is extremely challenging.

This course comprises of 34 individual videos on each of the exercises that made up Pilates’ original matwork sequence. Where possible a beginners, an intermediate and an advanced version of each exercise is shown.

The course is split into seven parts each part containing approx 5 video sessions. Part A is available now – new parts will be added shortly.
