PilatesEVO Explained

A beginers guide to PilatesEVO

If you want to learn more about PilatesEVO, then the best place to start is by reading this article by Chris Hunt, the creator of PilatesEVO.

Every “new” thing has a history that is commonly based in age-old traditions. Whilst the past is dead and the future is imagined, to understand our past is essential if we are to plan for a future of our choice. To make no plans is to allow ourselves to be directed by the plans of others.

PilatesEVO is a Holistic Exercise System

Now even modern science agrees that to be complete, exercise should not only be physical

An important aspect of PilatesEVO is the belief that our mind and body are one and the same. We must therefore consider both if we are to be the best we can be and achieve our potential. If our aim is to rehabilitate from injury or illness, to lose weight, to improve an aching back or to get stronger for a specific sport, using the PilatesEVO method of mind and body training we will be more successful.

One of the fundamental principles of PilatesEVO is the use of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP). Learn more about NLP and how we use it in PilatesEVO to create better teachers and get better results with clients.

Below are some frequently asked questions about PilatesEVO

There really is no such thing as “normal” Pilates because the system is different from school to school, teacher to teacher and even country to country. But usually there are some common principles in keeping with the intentions of Joseph Pilates. PilatesEVO respects those principles and goes further to create a deeper practise that aims to increase the potential for results.
A very common question! The answer is very simply a resounding NO!!! PilatesEVO is for both men and women. Joseph Pilates was a man, and he worked extensively with men. For sure more women do Pilates today then men as there is a perception that Pilates is for women, but we at PilatesEVO are working hard to change this.
There is no doubt that Pilates and PilatesEVO is great for dancers, but it is also great for a host of other people and activities. Some people feel that dance has too big an influence on Pilates today with some systems and teachers focused too much on dance. What we say is that PilatesEVO is a great system for everyone, and everyone can do it.
For sure, just visit our shop and you can buy a whole range of PilatesEVO related items. We are adding every day so check back often, or contact us with any specific requests.
Absoultely not. PilatesEVO is aimed at the widest possible range of people; from those rehabilitating from injury or illness to elite athletes preparing for competition. You can be male or female, young or old, fit or unfit, it really does not matter. PilatesEVO is taught at many different levels so everyone can enjoy a good workout, and all our teachers are experts on anatomy and on ability so they make sure every session can be done be everyone.
With emphasis on mind and body and on meditation, it may seem to some that PilatesEVO is religious. In fact it is not. For sure it is spiritual and focuses on the mind and body connecttion, but it is not at all religious. Everyone can enjoy the lesssons that PilatesEVO teaches and everyone can enrich their life.
Yes you can, we offer a full online training program. Alternatively you can join one the worldwide PilatesEVO educations, or you can study at our school in Barcelona.
We have PilatesEVO teachers all over the world. Just contact us and we can tell you the closest one to you.
Some people associate anything that is mind and body as being like yoga. PilatesEVO is not yoga. Sure, we use some kundalini movements as transition movements to give PilatesEVO the flow that it is so famous for, and many people who love yoga also love PilatesEVO, but Pilates is quite different to yoga.
PilatesEVO is what we call an evolution of Pilates, so the EVO part stands for evolution. The system is always evolving and never standing still.
