A bit of trivia for you:
Did you know that the origins of Pilates date back to World War I where Joseph Pilates, the founder of the method, was placed in an enemy camp on the Isle of Man? His background in gymnastics and study of anatomy and exercise gave him the ability to design exercises for others while there. In the 1920's he moved to New York where he began working with dancers. It was through the discovery of injuries related to reduced control in highly flexible performers that he developed exercises for stability rather than gross strength.
