From the Back Cover:

Pilates is a fusion of Western and Eastern exercise that emphasizes the working of all muscles in a balanced way while remaining acutely aware of the "mind-body" connection. It has been claimed by Elle magazine that it "may be as close as you can get to the perfect workout." This step-by-step guide, with its superb photographs, forms the perfect introduction.
The book concentrates on matwork rather than equipment-based exercise, using photographs to demonstrate all the key moves and illustrations to explain what is happening with the bones and muscles. It is an ideal complement to work undertaken with a Pilates teacher, allowing you to practice safely at home. Detailed text and illustrations explain exactly how the exercises work, why and how they benefit you, and how to do them well.
Pilates is suitable for people at all levels of fitness, from first-time exercisers to athletes and performers. It has also been described as the fastest-growing rehabilitation exercise program in the world. This book is an essential, easy-to-follow guide for all those who want to improve their fitness, posture, and appearance.
