"Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. Our physical mental condition colors & perhaps discolors our perceptions... awake or sleeping, youth or age, motion or rest, hunger or satiety, hatred or love. To ease mental strain & relieve physical fatigue we must acquire a reserve stockpile of nervous energy
in order that we may really be able to enjoy ourselves at work, in social interaction and all forms of play. Hobbies and all forms of play tend materially to renew our vitality with accompanying moral uplift. Pilates is the coordination of body, mind & spirit.
Our interpretation of physical fitness is the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body with a sound mind.
One of the major results of Pilates is gaining the mastery of our mind over the complete control of our physical condition. The Pilates goal is to develop the body uniformly, by gently correcting present postural difficulties, restoring physical vitality, invigorating the mind, and elevating the spirit.
We must constantly strive in our own interest to give constant thought to the improvement of our lives, and to spend more time in acquiring and maintaining that all-important goal of physical fitness."
