South Florida Lifestyle Guide, Pilates 101 with Stefanie Ellis, Pilates of Boca

The August issue of our digital magazine, South Florida Lifestyle Guide is about wellness, balance and peace. Stefanie Ellis, owner and a trainer at Pilates of Boca, shared with us the basics of Pilates.

The first thing you need to know, there are two basic styles of Pilates – Classical and Contemporary.
Classical Pilates is a form of exercise that most closely follows the discipline developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century that emphasizes the balanced development of the body. This means Classical Pilates follows Joseph Pilates’ original exercises and the order in which they were performed and followed precisely.
Contemporary Pilates has been modernized by adjusting the exercises to fit with modern research and has a heavy influence from physical therapy and biomechanics. Many exercises remain the same, but new exercises have been included, or variations have been added allowing for injury rehabilitation and creativity by the instructor.
