Michael Miller Pilates makes sense SM

Joseph Hubertus Pilates 1880 - 1967

Welcome to the
MICHAEL MILLER PILATES Home Page

Pilates is a method of physical and mental conditioning. A method is a means used to attain an end -- the conditioning of the mind and body into a fused state of readiness. Developed by Joseph Hubertus Pilates, he originally called his method contrology -- the complete coordination of body, mind and spirit.

"Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. Our interpretation of physical fitness is the attainment and maintenance of a uniformly developed body with a sound mind fully capable of naturally, easily, and satisfactorily performing our many and varied daily tasks with spontaneous zest and pleasure." Return to Life Through Contrology by Joseph H. Pilates and William John Miller


The MICHAEL MILLER trademark is a symbol of ideal posture and perfect body dynamics rooted in the physics of spiral movement found in galaxies, whirlpools, shells, wind and light. By choosing the attitude of natural and counter-balancing forces in our own body we can we reduce the stress of gravity and move pain free with ease and grace.

La griffe de MICHAEL MILLER c'est le symbole de la posture idéale et d'une parfaite dynamique corporelle qui prend sa source dans un mouvement de spirale présent dans les galaxies, les tourbillons, les coquillages, le vent et la lumière. En choisissant l'attitude des forces naturelles qui s'équilibrent dans notre propre corps, nous pouvons réduire la loi de la gravité et nous mouvoir avec aisance et grâce sans aucun effort.

Die Marke MICHAEL MILLER symbolisiert eine ideale Körperhaltung und eine perfekte Körperdynamik, wie sie in der Spiralbewegung von Galaxien, Wasserswirbeln, Muscheln, Wind und Licht zu finden ist. In dem wir die natürlichen und ausgleichenden Kräfte in unserem Körper unterstützen, können wir die Belastung durch die Schwerkraft mindern und uns schmerzfrei und mit Leichtigkeit und Anmut bewegen.

La marca registrada MICHAEL MILLER simboliza la postura ideal y una perfecta dinámica corporal basadas en la física del movimiento espiral de galaxias, remolinos, caracolas, del viento y de la luz. Al adoptar las posturas naturales y equilibradas propias de nuestro cuerpo, podemos reducir el peso de la gravedad y por lo tanto realizar movimientos indoloros, en forma sencilla y graciosa.

A marca registrada de MICHAEL MILLER é o símbolo da postura ideal e da dinâmica perfeita do corpo, cujas raízes se encontram na física e na expressão natural do movimento espiral das galáxias, redemoinhos, conchas, vento e luz. Escolhendo a atitude natural que contrabalança as forças em nosso próprio corpo, podemos reduzir o efeito da gravidade e nos movimentarmos livre de dores, com graça e sem esforço.
