Joseph Pilates wanted to “First Educate the child”
“In childhood, habits are easily formed – good and bad. Why not then concentrate on the formation of only good habits and thus avoid the necessity later on in life of attempting to correct bad habits and substituting them for good habits”
- Childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years (CDC, 2014)
- Overuse sporting injuries are on the rise for young athletes. (American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, 2014)
- Depressive disorder is the leading cause of disability among Americans age 15 to 44 (World Health Organization, 2014)
Our vision is to help Pilates teachers, allied professionals, media, schools, community organizations, allied organizations, and parents in bringing Pilates and wellness to all youth with the goal of developing lifestyles at an early age for long term health and happiness.
