Summary

Pilates as you've never seen it before! 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, stabilise 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 effectiveness and how breathing, alignment, posture and movement are all fundamentally linked.
