Gina Murphy instructs the following:
Pilates is an innovative system of mind-body exercise evolved from the rehabilitation principles of Joseph Pilates. Pilates builds strength without excess bulk, concentrating on the "powerhouse" of the core. It teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement through a series of exercises performed on the floor.
