ABOUT THE BOOK - "The acquirement and enjoyment of physical well-being, mental calm and spiritual peace are priceless to their possessors if there be any such so fortunate living among us today. However, it is the ideal to strive for, and in our opinion, it is only through Contrology that this unique trinity of a balanced body, mind, and spirit can ever be attained." --Joseph Pilates (1945)

Gary Calderone personally recognizes the healing gift of Pilates. Pilates changes lives. This echoed true then, and echoes true today. Pilates literally brought Gary back from the brink of disease. His life became unified, whole.  Healing is an inside job. It is maintenance—the Contrology—of self. Most of us are not given an owner’s manual: We bungle toward balance and health. We rush. We eat and drink too much, too little. We work more and play less. We live outside of our natural selves; holding up; putting off, or just getting through until we can “feel or fix” it later; until we can turn a corner and discover the truth--health is the natural state of the body. Balance is within our grasp. That’s the gift of this book: a contemporary voice of who, what, and how we find that balance. The Pilates Path to Health emerged from the concepts of the foundational work of Joseph Pilates’ Contrology. Finally, a contemporary voice in the Pilates community—speaks for the collective that recognizes Pilates as more than an exercise regimen—that lends distinction for teachers with a greater mission to evolve practitioner, student, and client to their next level of health. Because Contrology is evolving in a global community where people are seeking balance in all categories of their lives, this book is timely, acting as a marker of how Pilates is adapting and serving a 21st century world.
