Pilates as you’ve never seen it

With detailed descriptions, step-by-step instruction and stunning full-colour anatomical illustrations, Pilates Anatomy takes you inside the exercises and programmes that will tone the body, stabilize the core, improve balance and increase flexibility.

Using the original mat work of Joseph Pilates, you’ll see how key muscles are used, how variations and minor adjustments can influence exercise effectiveness and how breathing, alignment, posture and movement are all fundamentally linked.

With over 45 exercises to choose from, you can target a particular body region and delve deeper to stretch, strengthen and finely coordinate specific muscles.

You’ll also find techniques for breathing, concentration and self-awareness to provide a unique exercise experience that enhances your mind and your body.

Whether you are just beginning to explore the beauty and benefits of Pilates or have been practising for years, Pilates Anatomy is a unique resource that you’ll find yourself returning to again and again.
