Pilates is a form of exercise, developed by Joseph Pilates, which emphasises the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility and to support efficient graceful movement. He believed that by working both body and mind simultaneously he could cure illness and disease. He went on to develop his technique to rehabilitate soldiers during the war, and afterwards opened a studio in New York City where he started attracting well-known dancers.
