PilatesEVO Explained

What exactly is PilatesEVO?

So, what is PilatesEVO and how will it help you?

What? PilatesEVO is a collection of additional skills that can enhance Pilates, whether you are a teacher, or someone who loves doing Pilates on your own or at your local gym.

Why? Because we all want the maximum results and get more fulfillment from our Pilates practice. These can be achieved if we take the time to understand ourselves, and to enhance our knowledge.

PilatesEVO is a Holistic Exercise System

Modern science agrees that to be the best we can be, physical exercise is just one part of that process

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 our use of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) to help improve results.

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 tries to go further to create a deeper practice 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, we have our school and headquarters in Barcelona, Spain. Whilst some people chose to be taught in person, the vast majority of our customers prefer our online classes.

Absolutely 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. A good Pilates teacher will be an expert in anatomy and will teach on many different levels so everyone can enjoy a good workout.

Because we place some emphasis on mind and body including 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 connection, but it is not at all religious. Everyone can enjoy the lessons that we teach and everyone can enrich their life.

Yes you can, and the vast majority of our customers do! 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 qualified 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 have some influences from yoga, especially kundalini, but then yoga itself was a massive influence on Joseph Pilates, and he used that influence in many of the movements he taught, and in his philosophy of mind and body.

PilatesEVO is what we call an evolution of Pilates, so the EVO part stands for evolution. We believe that our courses help people to gain a deeper understanding of their Pilates practice, and of themselves.
