Joseph Pilates Certification USA

The original knowledge from the founder of Pilates is, of course, the best – and with Joseph Pilates certification – you can offer students the chance to learn the movements and apparatus that was designed back in 1920 to be the epitome of body conditioning for health.

Joseph Pilates Certification – The Contrology Expert

Breathe Education offers a range of Pilates programs that are designed with the original movements and equipment of Joseph Pilates in mind; combined with the most modern and up to date scientific knowledge & evidence based practice. Pilates as a form of exercise and self-care has become synonymous with fearless movement, if you are looking to take that knowledge and share your love of Pilates then basing your learning from the knowledge of the founder and creator of the movements is the most comprehensive and complete way of learning.

We offer students looking for Joseph Pilates certification a completely online and internationally recognized way of taking their own Pilates practice and turning it into a new career, based on the crucial foundations of the man who invented the movements and sequences.

Who is Joseph Pilates?

Joseph Hubertus Pilates was born in Germany in 1883, and as a child, he suffered from terribly poor health. He is known to have had asthma, rickets and rheumatic fever, spending time immobile and often completely bed ridden. As he developed into his teenage years, he took the knowledge of his father who was a keen gymnast and began working towards physical strength through gymnastic movements and bodybuilding.

As he learned more about the way the body worked, he became aware that ‘modern living’, including bad posture and inefficient breathing, was at the root of poor physical health, and started to work on a series of exercises and movements designed to combat these.

When he moved to England in 1912, he spent his time as a circus performer and a professional boxer, even training the Police at Scotland Yard in self-defense. However, in World War One he was sent to an internment camp alongside other German nationals, where he trained his fellow inmates with his knowledge, including yoga and his studies of the movements of animals. His first system of minimal equipment mat exercises was based on the intuitive litheness of the cat and were the foundations of Contrology.

When he emigrated to the USA in 1925, he opened a studio alongside his wife Clara in New York City, where he encouraged students to use control of their body to perfect a series of movements. This method was used by dancers to develop strength and balance, and when it became clear that ballerinas were using the Pilates method, it wasn’t long before society ladies followed suit.

Today, Pilates is a worldwide phenomenon, and it is said that more than 12 million people around the globe actively practice the principles of Pilates as taught by Joseph himself, with his wife Clara.

Why Choose Joseph Pilates Certification Programs?

Working from the principles taught by Joseph Pilates in certification programs offers your practice the legitimacy of the original ideas. Contrology is still the most important part of modern Pilates, whether it’s Pilates Matwork or Reformer Pilates – but with an underpinning of scientific understanding. Learning with Breathe Education gives you the knowledge of Joseph Pilates certification so that you can share the original learning with your students.
