Pilates himself. And that is a very important thing to mention which I will explain in a bit more detail later on. Brooke Siler is an incredible woman with a renowned name. She is an intelligent woman whom I admire greatly. This book has a very good introduction to Pilates, with the basic rules and principles which is something that I always find as a good way to start a book on Pilates because people are not generally very familiar with the basic principles and the ones who are are usually glad to be reminded of them or simply appreciate it being mentioned because it is the core of everything people will learn later on. This is another aspect of this book that I highly appreciate.

An iconic Pilates book, it was my constant Pilates workout companion. How wonderful to have a book with all the same exercises in it that I was learning in my Pilates Mat classes. What a concept! Before the wide availability of Pilates information online, The Pilates Body arrived with a treasure trove of images, illustrations and suggestions about creating a steady practice for advancing your workout.
A few months ago, I connected with Brooke in Los Angeles for an amazing fundraising event for our beloved colleague Mari Winsor. Especially as Pilates teachers we can never get enough of the good stuff for ourselves and continually study and teach this amazing method of body conditioning. Where can I find Brooke? And for the first time, in October , Brooke will be presenting at Pilates Association of Australasia while getting in some quality time with her family in Australia. What is your favorite Pilates exercise and why?
Brooke Siler: The Roll Up. It works strength, stretch, articulation and you can do it almost anywhere. It feels great on my body. What exercise is your least favorite? Pick only one. BS: Long Back Stretch. What turns you on creatively, mentally or physically about the Pilates method? BS: Personal power. I love that this method provides the tools necessary to not only take care of ourselves, but to thrive!
What is your idea of earthly happiness? BS: My kids, my friends, my family, good health and lots of laughter. What to your mind would be the greatest misfortune? BS: To lose my children. What is your favorite Pilates word? BS: Teaser Time!
What is your least favorite Pilates word? What profession other than your own would you like to attempt? BS: Artist 9. If Heaven exists, and by some chance when you arrive at the pearly gates Joseph Pilates is also there, what would you like to hear him say to you? BS: Great job. Thank you for helping. What did you learn today?
