Pilates or Physical Mind method, is a series of nonimpact exercises designed by Joseph Pilates to develop strength,flexibility, balance, and inner awareness.  

Pilates is a form of strength and flexibility training that can be done by someone at any level of fitness. The exercisescan also be adapted for people who have limited movement or who use wheel chairs. It is an engaging exercise programthat people want to do. Pilates promotes a feeling of physical and mental well-being and also develops inner physicalawareness. Since this method strengthens and lengthens the muscles without creating bulk, it is particularly beneficialfor dancers and actors. Pilates is also helpful in preventing and rehabilitating from injuries, improving posture, andincreasing flexibility, circulation, and balance. Pregnant women who do these exercises can develop body alignment,improve concentration, and develop body shape and tone after pregnancy. According to Joseph Pilates, "You will feelbetter in 10 sessions, look better in 20 sessions and have a completely new body in 30 sessions."
Although Pilates is often associated with dancers, athletes, and younger people in general who are interested inimproving their physical strength and flexibility, a simplified version of some Pilates exercises is also being used as of 2003 to lower the risk of hospital-related deconditioning in older adults. A Canadian study of hospitalized patients over the age of 70 found that those who were given a set of Pilates exercises that could be performed in bed recovered more rapidly than a control group given a set of passive range-of-motion exercises.
