Teach Yourself Pilates Summary

Teach Yourself Pilates by Matthew Aldrich

This introduction explains the history and the theory behind Pilates, now one of the most popular exercise classes in gyms throughout the UK.

Highly rated by celebrities, professional dancers, sportspeople and men and women of all ages and levels of fitness, it is now also widely acknowledged by health professionals as an effective technique for repairing specific injuries, especially to the back.

With the help of approximately 100 black and white line drawings, the simple-to-follow, step-by-step instructions are suitable for both newcomers to Pilates and those who already attend classes but want to know more.

The book starts with a general introduction and a summary of basic anatomy. The main principles of Pilates are explained and there is practical advice on how to do the exercises at home.

The exercises themselves are given on two levels, so the reader can choose the right level and then progress on to the higher level when ready.

In addition, it explains how to use the method to repair injuries or build up general strength and increase fitness levels.

The glossary of terms at the end of the book serves as a useful reference.
