The Pilates Method teaches you to be in control of your body and not at its mercy. ~ Joseph Pilates
Control: An amalgamation of all preceding principles (awareness, balance, breath, concentration, centering). Initially, achieving control of movement is a conscious process. It is accomplished through practicing over and over again. As you continue to train and integrate the Pilates repertoire into your body, sometimes for years and many hundreds of repetitions, your own movement control can become one of grace, effortless quality and unencumbered movement…it can become part of your being.
