Pilates Returns You to Life

Joseph Pilates wrote the book “Return to Life through Contrology”. In his book he explains “Contrology (known as Pilates) develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit.” (pg 27)

I had the pleasure of seeing a picture of me from 8 years ago when my Facebook took me down memory lane. I was truly impressed with the photo because looking at it now I barely recognize myself. When comparing that picture with a recent picture I can see that I am much happier now, I do have better posture, and I know that my mind is in a healthier state. Creative flows easier, I stress less, and I adapt to changes quickly.

Don’t believe me? Give Contrology (Pilates) a try! Here’s the photographic evidence for you to ponder whether this is for real or not. Spoiler alert: it’s for real.
