    I don't know much about Winsor Pilates as it just tends to be localised to America - it's not very well known in the UK or Australia (where I live now). I have, however, read the Winsor Pilates book - all Pilates styles are different but the principles remain virtually the same, I have found. One book I was very impressed with was "The Pilates Body" by Brooke Siler. She is American and she owns a studio in NY City - she trains a lot of stars! I have found her technique very similar to Michael King (who I trained through) and her book is very easy to follow and provides the reader with all the necessary background and principles. Definitely worth a read!

    I believe thereĀ“s not many "Pilates Styles"
    Just "Contrology" ... what Joe left us with .
    Theres videos , pictures and writtings of Joe that affirm that this is a well desing sequence of excercices and the order that they are done in ... MATTERS.(Progressive patterns of movement).
    Pilates is the complete coordination of body mind and spirit.
    It develops the body uniformly
    and its a corrective excersice.

    What ever came after ( tradition ) is something else !!!!

    Im sure they are not bad , and in no way this is an Offense to anybody ... Just a reminder of what the method really is about.

    Hey there, just wanted to put my two cents in about Windsor Pilates. I started a workout group during lunch at work and we do the windsor program and everyone really likes it. We have been doing it for two weeks and we are starting to see results.
    Hope this helps!
