The Pilates Path to Health: Body, Mind and Spirit

Life today is tempered by a growing sense of the overwhelming challenges we face in national and global affairs. This book is intended to expand internal awareness to better face those challenges—to build on what you know, to illuminate the reason that drives your practice, to help deepen what may be elusive or incomplete in your understanding of a coordinated, uniquely balanced trinity of body, mind, and spirit and the universal message that it holds. It is intended to help support individuals practicing the Pilates method, to support that consciousness Joseph Pilates referred to so many decades ago, to accomplish our desires from a position of renewed life!
~Gary Calderone, Author

“Joseph Pilates’ life was a dramatic reflection of his vision; and now, through this timely and beautifully crafted book, Gary Calderone has given us a window through which we, too, can reflect on an even grander path with our Pilates practice.

About the Book

This book bridges the gap between how we do Pilates and why we do Pilates. This is a why book––a book that redefines Pilates as more than exercise, illuminates distinctions that emerge as individuals move toward transformation through their practice of Pilates, and journeys the reader through possibilities of how that may impact the world.

~Brent D.Anderson, PT, PhD, OCS, President of Polestar Pilates, says…” This ‘must read’ is a significant addition to the limited library of the work enjoyed by millions around the globe”.

This book broadens the core writings of Joseph H. Pilates (1883-1967) into the vernacular of the 21st century where health is redefined as self-healing – where we will experience greater insight into the ‘unspoken benefits’ one gains in the practice of Pilates. We will also recognize a renewed relationship with self and with gravity, and be able to distinguish a shift in our patterns of thinking and moving, toward something better.

~Rachel Taylor Segel with Amy Taylor Alpers Co-founder and Co-owner, The Pilates Center Boulder, Colorado, says…” As Gary describes so richly, the power of Pilates is so profound it can motivate them to change the deepest patterns of their lives and then touch those around them newly”.

It is my understanding and my intention to suggest in this book that Joseph Pilates clearly foresaw how the widespread embrace of his work could and would change human thinking and living, to the betterment of all humankind. I am a firm believer in the pull of the future. The surge in the popularity of Pilates, its steady growth around the world, and its future I see as part of a great rethinking—an evolution in self-awareness and knowledge.

~Clare Dunphy, Peak Pilates Master Trainer, Director of Progressive Body Works,Inc., says… “He illuminates the truth about how choices for our inner health are mirrored in the manifestation of our outer experience, thereby strengthening global consciousness.Truly inspiring!
