Joseph Pilates

Joseph H. Pilates devised his method of movement, a series of exercises initially called “Contrology”, because he believed it would improve the quality of life for anyone who would follow it. He designed the order of the series of exercises to decompress the spine, improve breathing, uniformly develop the body, and rid the body of unwanted stress and toxins.

Joe Pilates as a boxer

Pilates believed that applying the Principles of Pilates: Concentration, Precision, Control, Centering, Flowing Movement and Breath, to the order of exercises, everyone who practiced these movements would be able to achieve the ultimate goal of “true health”.

Karol Schmidt

Karol Schmidt, oxner and operator of Blue Sage Pilates

Having been an avid walker and weightlifter, Karol’s training came to a stand still when she suffered a low back injury while working out. After more than a year of rehab and physical therapy, a friend recommended Pilates to help strengthen her core and prevent re-injury. After one session, she became enamored with Pilates and quickly began to realize the benefits that Pilates was bringing to her life. Having been so deeply affected by Pilates, she decided to ‘pay it forward’ and became certified to teach.
