   “Contrology” was introduced by Joseph Pilates in 1929, focusing on a special type of stretching and breathing exercise. He used the word Contrology because those exercises had an essential principle, which is to let your mind control the muscles. Unlike other exercises, which you can multitask while conducting, Contrology requires you to concentrate on each body part that you move with total awareness.

   Contrology emphasizes the balanced development of the body through core strength, flexibility, and awareness to support efficient, graceful movement. The method utilizes various apparatuses such as the reformer, Cadillac, and Wunda chair (and MANY more apparatuses) which incorporate pulleys and springs to provide resistance and support during exercises.

  The use of these apparatuses and springs helps to challenge the body's muscles and improve overall strength, flexibility, and coordination. The controlled and precise movements performed on these apparatuses aim to develop a strong, stable core and promote proper alignment and posture. Overall, contrology is designed to help individuals achieve a more balanced and aligned body through mindful movement and resistance-based exercises.
