Chemistry has Marie Curie, physics has Albert Einstein, The Price Is Right has Bob Barker and Pilates has Joseph Pilates.
What do they all have in common? They were geniuses in their field of work.
Marie Curie discovered two elements, (polonium and radium), and won TWO Nobel Prizes, Albert Einstein developed the Theory of Relativity and is also a Nobel Prize winner, Bob Barker had one of the longest careers as a television host and dutifully reminded us to spay or neuter our pets and last, but not least, Joseph Pilates developed Contrology, showing his true genius when it comes to understanding the body and its functionality.
I stumbled upon the short video below in my facebook newsfeed that struck a chord with me. Not only is is great to see all the exercises being performed beautifully on a variety of the apparatus, but Master Teacher Juanita Lopez gives a refreshingly inspiring perspective on the Pilates Method. Give it a watch and let me know what you think!
