Simona shares a simple and extremely useful overview of anatomy and how it relates to Pilates. While Joe Pilates did not use anatomical terms when teaching clients, it's clear that he studied anatomy extensively and even posed for Anatomical Charts. Simona uses a skeleton here to demonstrate how Pilates benefits our anatomy, for instance why we stand with our feet in a ‘V’ in Pilates or what it looks like when the knee is hyperextended, Visit Simona at her studio The Art of Control at SUNY Purchase.
