Today I Learned...

Apparently I have been living in lala land about the origins of some of my exercises.

Pilates, to be more specifically. I have always thought it was like yoga, one of those things that has just been around forever, being practiced by many different ethnicities around the world, each with different takes on it, not having been created by one person, but a mesh of collaboration.


Josef Pilates. World War I. Created it during the war for exercise in different war camps.

I feel like a moron. *hangs head in shame*

I know a book about Joseph Pilates and the evolution of the exercises! It's a bit of a slow read, but really interesting.
