Splash! Infusing the flavor of pilates into water exercise by Mary E. Sanders, PhD, CDE, RCEP, FACSM

Joseph Pilates developed and taught a method of exercise that kept him physically robust until he died in his 80s. Pilates is practiced on land as a means to improve performance, to rehabilitate an injury and to achieve health and wellness. Researchers have defined the popular discipline as "a mind-body exercise that requires core stability, strength, and flexibility, with an attention to muscle control, posture, and breathing." ... With respect to my pilates colleagues, and in the spirit of cooperative learning, I'd like to take this opportunity to apply some of the discipline’s core concepts, so together, we develop an innovative, synergistic, "pilates inspired" experience in the pool.
