A Pilates Primer
A must-have for Pilates teachers, and practitioners. The Millennium Edition, is the complete works of Joseph H. Pilates.
This edition includes two books: Return To Life Through Contrology, originally published in 1945, and Your Health, first published in 1934.

This book makes available in one volume all of his early 20th Century philosophies, principles, and theories about health and fitness. Each exercise is fully described, with Pilates original instructions.
Joseph Pilates was born in Germany in 1883, and died in New York City in 1967. He invented, and promoted his method of physical fitness, which he called Contrology.
Essentially teaching the Contrology method to dancers in his studio in New York, his method is now taught and practised worldwide, and is known as Pilates. The Millennium Edition is available in Kindle at Amazon, and in paperback at Barnes & Noble.
