The evolution of Pilates

PilatesEVO takes Pilates to a higher level. It can be used as a stand-alone system or the many different subject areas can be used when teaching any exercise class and in everyday life too.

“Life is always moving forward, always changing, always evolving. When we awaken to the fact we cannot stop or control change; that we should embrace it, then we are able to move forward as well. From this philosophy I created PilatesEVO©.  Never forget your past as it built the foundation that your present so depends. But the past is not an excuse to stay still and not plan for a different future.

Just as Pilates works the body from the inside out, the proactive approach to life is to change from the inside out: to be different, and by being different to effect positive change in yourself and the world.”

Chris Hunt, creator of PilatesEVO©.

Chris Hunt PilatesEVO

Hi, I’m Chris. Who am I? Good question because many people do not have any idea who they are. My spiritual journey means I have a much better idea who I am, but I am still on my journey and it will last for the rest of my life.

If you have read my article the History of PilatesEVO you will know more about my history and my personal journey from financial markets in London to my spiritual awakening. We are a result of our past actions. If you are not happy with who you are today, great news is that your present is a result of your past; your future can be anything you choose starting right here and now. It is that simple.

I wanted a deeper meaning, not only to “exist”. I dedicated my life to studying; from Buddhist monks in the Temples of Bangkok, from countless books, and mostly by talking and learning from people. I travelled the world teaching PilatesEVO and everywhere I went I learnt something new.

Pilates teachers love our work because we help people. I reframe this slightly by saying that I give people the tools and knowledge to help themselves and in turn help others. It is about empowering people, not telling them what to do. This ethos forms the basis for PilatesEVO.

I created PilatesEVO from ancient and modern techniques I have seen create amazing results. Everything in PilatesEVO means something; from the number of repetitions to the sequence of exercises; from the detailed study of anatomy to the application of NLP techniques; from meridians to functional training; from mindfulness meditation to the music. It all comes from the heart.

Every PilatesEVO teacher brings their own personality to the system. It is therefore forever evolving. I have total respect and trust in all teachers, and I work with them to bring their ideas and personalities to life within the system. This is true evolution that no other system allows.

Mind and body are one and the same thing. We must nourish both to reach our potential. It’s not enough to focus on physical or psychological, to nourish the body if our thoughts are negative. We must throw off negative programming that no longer serves us, and replace it with positive, beneficial values.
