Why Pilates Basics Remains a Classic in the Pilates Canon

Want to have more energy and strength and look and feel better than you have in years? Then Pilates is for you! However, there are a handful of fundamental skills everyone must learn before they can reap the full benefit of Pilates — and this book lays them out in precise and inspiring detail. Developed by certified Pilates instructor Jillian Hessel, Pilates Basics is a series of exercises that anyone can do, regardless of fitness level.

Over the past three decades, Jillian Hessel has been honing her teaching and presentation skills to clearly convey in words and pictures the foundations of Pilates exercise: proper breathing, muscular initiation, alignment, and clean movement.

Pilates Basics is different from other books you may find on the bookshelf, because it is written especially for the novice — the person who has never practiced Pilates before, but is eager to learn. In this book, a postural analysis and a series of pre-Pilates fundamentals pave the way for the 21 matwork exercises that follow. Each exercise is accompanied by full-color photographis and detailed, step-by-step instructions.

Pilates for Beginners Video

Though written for beginners, this book is also an exceptional resource for Pilates teachers.

Printed on high-quality paper with glossy cover in the U.S.A.

The companion video for this book, Pilates for Beginners, is available for streaming at Amazon.
