The most acclaimed, comprehensive guide for Pilates is back with all-new photos and more variations, modifications, and progressions than ever before.

InPilates, Third Edition,world-renowned Pilates expert Rael Isacowitz draws on over four decades of experience to offer you a path to total health and well-being through the Pilates method. Whether you are a beginner, a teacher using Pilates in a therapeutic setting, or a veteran instructor working with athletes, this resource will help you tap into the potential of the mind-body connection to gain the elusive edge in training.

Pilatesstarts with the foundation for all the exercises by presenting an in-depth treatment of mat work, including photos, imagery, cues, and detailed instruction on breathing to help you perform the movements correctly. After the mat work,Pilatesgoes on to apply the same depth of instruction and photos to the full range of Pilates apparatus:

  • Ladder barrel, also known as the high barrel
  • Step barrel, also known as the spine corrector
  • Ped-a-pul
  • F2 chair (arm chair)
  • Magic circle

There are more than 200 exercises, categorized by body region. The exercises include difficulty ratings, recommended resistance ranges, and explanations of not only how to perform the movements but also how practitioners will benefit from them. New variations, modifications, and progressions for more than 60 exercises offer additional options for tailoring the exercises based on ability, skill, or preference.

The book includes a purposeful grouping of exercises into programs that work all regions of the body and progress from the fundamental level through the intermediate and advanced levels to challenge you at all stages of Pilates practice.

Pilates is a holistic approach to well-being that offers a bridge between mind and body, between everyday life and optimal performance, and between rehabilitation and healthy movement. When used to its full potential, it can enhance every aspect of life.
