    Founded by the Pilates Method Alliance (PMA®), Pilates Day is held on the first Saturday of May each year giving an exciting opportunity for the Pilates community to unite in celebration of everything Joseph and Clara Pilates brought to the world. This year’s Pilates Day 2016 is set to emphasize “Pilates Bliss,” spotlighting the joy experienced through Pilates — in health, community and quality of life.

    Known as an inventor, philosopher, author and fitness expert, Joseph H. Pilates taught a ‘whole body health’ exercise system, with a strong focus on breath.

    A little history: Upon his arrival in New York City in the 1920s, Joseph Pilates quickly developed a devoted clientele of men and women from all walks of life. His work was also of particular interest to the the dance and performing arts community in New York City, who embraced his methods to support their professional aspirations..

    “Everyone is the architect of his own happiness, “ Joseph H. Pilates. His words of wisdom continue to motivate and excite new generations.
