Classical Pilates is the purest version of Contrology. It focuses on an intensive understanding of the human musculoskeletal system to achieve a personalized, full-body and mind workout without strain or injury, just the way Joseph Pilates had taught it.
Classical Pilates Teachers are rigorously trained to work with every level of fitness, body type, age, and musculoskeletal condition. They undergo several years of instruction, not just in terms of technique but also an in-depth understanding of the human anatomy, and are trained to impart this understanding to their students.
While teaching, intensive engagement ensures Teachers’ guidance and involvement each step of the way. This enables them to constantly adapt the program as the practitioner progresses, always keeping the workouts interesting and challenging, yet safe from injuries.
Every movement creates a physical impact. How we sit, walk and hold our bodies as we engage in our daily tasks has significant repercussions on our musculoskeletal health. Many of us tend to develop incorrect postures and movements unconsciously.
The real benefit of Classical Pilates is a deep understanding of our bodies. Every exercise is done gently, with full awareness of each muscle and bone, and their strengths and weaknesses.
Classical Pilates is as much a mental workout as a physical one, focused on ‘feeling’ your body while it engages in controlled movements. This results in practitioners developing an instinctive ‘body-sense’, allowing them to move naturally and gracefully throughout their lives.
