Pilates Day is an annual, international, community event celebrated on the first Saturday of May every year. The Pilates Day mission is to foster the public's appreciation and awareness of the Pilates Method through a network of varied, innovative, and high quality grassroots Pilates events accessible and affordable for all. Pilates Day is a program of the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA).
To commemorate Pilates Day this year, we have reached deep into our own archives to show you never before seen footage of the first Pilates Anytime class ever filmed, May 5, 1929. We hope that you have a great Pilates Day and that you will join us in honoring Joseph and Clara Pilates and the method they developed that makes all of our lives better.
A big thank you to everyone that helped us with this video especially Ken Gilbert
and E. Bonnie Lewis of the Drama Dogs
