About the Author
Praise For The Anatomy of Pilates…
“Reading this book made me want to utilize Pilates more in my exercise routine… [it] is organized in a way that the reader can easily navigate the basics of Pilates—Introduction, Posture and Movement, Applications, and Classical Pilates Exercises… The Anatomy of Pilates is very informative and because the book is only around 150 pages, it isn't a daunting read. The full-color illustrations are the icing on the cake, making the book more easily digested.”
