It’s the mind itself which shapes the body.

 

- Joseph Pilates, German physical trainer who invented the Pilates method of physical fitness, which increases flexibility, strength of the deep torso and abdominal muscles, and stamina, while teaching awareness of breath and of alignment of the spine. He emigrated to the U. S. in 1925 and opened  a studio in New York City, where, along with his wife (who he met on the boat to America), he taught students his method into the 1960s. Pilates attracted a devoted following from New York’s dance community who came to him for training and rehabilitation. Fifty years after his death, the popularity of his method continues to grow. (1883-1967)
