We included quite a few chapters from the book and the whole Mat.
Joseph H. Pilates already published his mat work, so we feel we can give this portion away for free.
Feel free to read it in any order, but do eventually read the method chapters in order to understand how he works.

READ THIS!!!

       You may read the chapters in any order, but before you skip to the section/s that interest you, please read the following little paragraphs: 

       Throughout the book, anything in bold letters,  is a personal quote from Joseph himself or the name of an exercise or piece of equipment, exactly as he called it. If it is bold and italics the text represents either my opinion or is an exercise name that is often used, but not created by Joseph himself.

        A lot of the exercises that you know won’t appear in the book. A lot of exercises that you may not know will appear. The exercises are not performed according to any present school of Pilates. We only follow Joseph H. Pilates instructions. Any similarities between the exercises on the book and what you may know are purely coincidental.

        Quick note: due to the nature of his work things are connected throughout, so some repetition is not only unavoidable, but I chose to repeat myself in many places if I thought the point should be repeated. Is only ink after all.
