We use professionally shot photographs of simple movements to illustrate the exercises. The book can be read by those with beginner to advanced Pilates experience and also by fellow health professionals. In someone with no understanding it will generate enthusiasm to start, in someone with a little understanding it will develop awareness and maintain motivation and in someone with previous knowledge it will show Pilates in a whole new light generating new enthusiasm. The first chapter introduces the author, the second explains the background of Pilates and its links with rehabilitation and sport, the third explains how Prescribed Pilates is different to the current teachings. We present the assessment, rehabilitation and advanced movements with teaching points as though you are at a session with a Physiotherapist.
