Pilates, originally called 'Contrology', is essentially a series of exercises and movements, concepts and philosophies as developed by Joseph Pilates.

The emphasis is on spinal, shoulder and pelvic stabilization, spinal alignment and on the recruitment of balance, coordinated neuromuscular movement patterns. Abdominal strength, flexibility endurance and co-ordination are hallmarks of these exercises, Improved health, better energy and quickness of mind are developed through the practice of the philosophies and concepts.

Equipment, such as Reformer, Cadillac/Trapeze, Wunda Chair, High Ladder Barrel, Intermediate Barrel/Spine Corrector, is used to reinforce the integrity of good postural alignment without using force but resistance, thereby removing pain from the exercises.
