The Pilates Legacy Project

3 min - Special


In the past 15 years, Pilates has exploded into an international phenomenon and is now practiced by millions worldwide. However, most people know little about the origin or history of the practice that was started by Joseph Pilates nearly 100 years ago.

The Pilates Legacy Project tracks the growth and evolution of the Pilates method from Joseph's original students to the people who continue to keep the torch burning today.

The Project is an ongoing, ever-growing archive of the history of Pilates, and new content will be published about once a week. There is no extra charge for the Legacy Project content--it is included in the standard subscription rate of $18 USD per month.
