Part of the 'Complete Idiot's Guide' series.

Rather than sucking in your gut, wishing you looked svelte in your wetsuit, try Pilates - the whole-body workout that strengthens the abs and back and straightens the posture, making you look and feel taller. Pilates has been around since the 1920s, but back again in a big way, combining the allure of rebalancing your mind as you fine-tune from head to toe - a total body conditioning workout.

In easy-to-read prose, combined with clear photographs, this book is written for first-timers as well as people who know a little about the workout and want to know more. In 10 sessions you'll feel the difference; in 20 sessions you'll see the difference; in 30 sessions you'll have a new body.

Contents:
- Part I: Pilates for the Body and Soul - Joseph Pilates and his method
- Part II: The Perfect Pilates Body - the 6 basic principles of the Pilates method of body conditioning
- Part III: Instruments of Torture - Pilates equipment
- Part IV: Mindful Healing
- Part V: Hello Baby, Good-bye Fat - Pilates for the pregnant woman and new mom, and other special cases

The book is ideal for anyone looking for a total body workout, including people with chronic pain and joint stress, overweight people, those wishing to prevent osteoporosis, and senior citizens.
