Pilates method was developed by German-born Joseph Pilates, who believed mental and physical health were closely linked. His method was influenced by western forms of exercise, including gymnastics, boxing and Greco-Roman wrestling. Pilates immigrated to the US in the 1920s and opened a studio in New York, where he taught his method, which he called “Contrology” – for several decades.
