Some of my favourite quotes from Joseph Pilates:
"The mind when housed within a healthful body, possesses a glorious sense of power."
"In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference, in 20 you'll see the difference, and in 30 you'll have a new body."
"Everyone is the architect of their own happiness."
"It's the mind itself which shapes the body."
"Patience and persistence are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavour."
"Contrology is complete coordination of mind, body and spirit."
"Change happens through movement and movement heals".
"If your spine is inflexibly stiff at 30, you are old. If it is completely flexible at 60, you are young."
"Every moment of our life can be the beginning of great things."
"The Pilates method teaches you to be in control of your body not at it's mercy".
