The Essence of the Pilates Method (Through the eyes of a wise 5 year old)

What IS Pilates?

This is a question I used to have to answer all of the time. Now I don't get asked it quite as much because Pilates has become such a household name. Although, I think many people still might not know what the true essence of the method is, or what the intentions of Mr. Pilates actually were. Rather than write it out, my dear friend and Pilates Nerd founder, Karen Ellis, made a short video which, for me, captures the essence of the work and why we, as teachers, feel the method is so magical.
