Happy birthday to this whisky-drinking, cigar-smoking bad ass. He loved body-building, martial arts, gymnastics and boxing. Before coming to NY, he made a living as a circus performer and self-defense trainer for police. When he was sent to an internment camp for German citizens in England during WW1, he used his time to work with fellow inmates and develop his “contrology” exercise system. He fled Germany and immigrated to NYC in the 20s, where he was embraced by the performing arts community (including many dancers who went on the teach and share his work). He believed that “modern” culture, incorrect posture and poor breathing habits were at the root of health problems. He believe in dry brushing and keeping skin/pores clean and free from lotions. He believed you should spend as much time as possible outdoors, in the sunshine and fresh air, and walked around in his skivvies everywhere including the streets of New York, year round. The Contrology system, later named “Pilates,” used the mind to control the body and focused on deep core abdominal muscles to build full-body strength and improve stamina. He used everything from bed springs to beer kegs to create his apparatuses. He was a true inventor. So you see, Pilates is not about stretching. Yes, you get more flexible, but it’s not the point. It’s a fiercely challenging, yet incredibly rewarding exercise system that helps people achieve their maximum physical potential. You’ll be sweating from the smallest movements, and using your entire body to move a single limb, but after 30 lessons, every single move you make in your life will be easier. #josephpilates#contrology#pilates#pilatesmethod#pilateslife#pilateslover#pilatesmat#pilatesreformer#pilatescadillac#pilatesbody#pilatesfit#pilatesstrong#pilatesforlife#breathe#powerhouse#core#fullbodyintegration#exerciseforlife#lovepilates#freshair#sunshine#posture#alignment#ksjbodycontrol
When your baby falls asleep on the walk home from picking up big sister from playschool you park her on the porch and leave the door ajar so you hear when they wake up right? Or is this bad parenting ... darn you fresh air (and rain). #strollernap#freshair#parenting#winter
Am început săptămâna cu o zi de "pauză" pentru noi 3.
Așadar, am făcut o plimbare în Poiana Brașov cu băieții mei 💙💙 și ne-am bucurat de liniște, zăpadă și mai mult oxigen 😀
Între timp, am cules și un braț de conuri, cu gândul de a le transforma în decorațiuni de Crăciun. Acum caut idei și metode pentru a le "conserva" și "modela" cât mai frumos.
No matter the season your fresh air addict is outside soaking in the elements but not without extra pure zinc oxide sunscreen and a blanket to throw down when it's time for a break. #GiftsForParticularPeople#Day10
