Lately my social feeds have been inundated with ads for "Pilates equipment". Band & tubing systems, bars with wheels, and souped up "reformers".
Conversely, I'm also seeing a lot of exercises done on mat & Pilates apparatus that are not Pilates exercises - exercises that Joseph Pilates didn't teach.
In this episode I try to push discernment. Let's learn what Joe Pilates actually taught, take a look at his actual apparatus that he invented, and ask ourselves if what we're doing and teaching is Pilates.
