Contrology (1934) and Your Health (1945) are the two original source materials written by Joseph Pilates. Both are contained in this edition. They are both indispensable to teachers and serious students alike, and should be the first point of research and study undertaken. The next most important source of information are the original students of Pilates, and then of course students of the original students. Unfortunately, there is a plethora of books constantly emerging about Pilates. The method was developed by Joseph Pilates over a period of 30+ years through a great deal of scientific experimentation, research and practical application. It is important to first have a clear understanding of the roots and foundation of his method before moving toward more transient resources.
