Pilates Mat Order

Here is Joseph Pilates’ original mat sequence as published in “Return to Life Through Contrology”. Every classical Pilates instructor will use this order. That does not mean every client will do every exercise listed. It is fine to omit exercises as needed, but we always keep the progressions of the order.

Current clients please enter your username/password here then return to this page and refresh your browser if necessary. The step-by-step instructions and video should be visible below.
