Take a detailed look at your Pilates practice with the superbly illustrated exercises in Pilates Anatomy, Second Edition.

Choose from 46 exercises to target a particular body region and delve deeper to stretch, strengthen, and finely coordinate specific muscles. See which key muscles are activated, how variations and minor adjustments can influence effectiveness, and how breathing, alignment, and movement are all fundamentally linked as you work to tone the body, stabilize the core, improve balance, and increase flexibility.

Use the Personalize Your Practice section for each exercise to vary your practice and customize your workouts to fit your needs. Here you’ll find modifications to make each exercise more accessible when there are limitations such as tight hamstrings or underdeveloped core strength. Variations provide variety, and progressions are offered to add more challenge to each exercise and serve as valuable stepping stones on your journey to more advanced Pilates exercise.

Also included are techniques for breathing, concentration, and self-awareness, providing a unique exercise experience that enhances your body and your mind.

Whether you are just beginning to explore the beauty and benefits of Pilates or have been practicing for years, Pilates Anatomy is a one-of-a-kind resource that you’ll refer to again and again.

CE exam available! For certified professionals, a companion continuing education exam can be completed after reading this book. Pilates Anatomy, Second Edition Online CE Exam, may be purchased separately or as part of the Pilates Anatomy, Second Edition With CE Exam, package that includes both the book and the exam.
Industry Reviews
"Karen and Rael are two of the most respected names in the Pilates field, and Pilates Anatomy, Second Edition, brings together their clarity and passion. This book is at the top of my list."
-Nora St. John, Education Program Director for Balanced Body University

"Anatomy is a fundamental science that is absolutely necessary to truly understand human movement. Rael and Karen do an amazing job of bringing anatomy to life for Pilates teachers. This second edition brings the Pilates teacher updated information, including functional muscular and skeletal anatomy combined with planes of movement and the application of anatomy to basic Pilates principles. Rael's ability to bring order to the exercise and its corresponding anatomy is a gift. We are looking forward to adding the second edition of Pilates Anatomy to our must-read list."
-Brent Anderson, PhD, PT, OCS, PMA (R)-CPT, President of Polestar Life Retreats and Southwind Retreat Center

"Karen Clippinger and Rael Isacowitz have done an excellent job of honoring the past of Joseph Pilates' great body of work, acknowledging the present, and forging into the future. The technique cues and exercise notes after each segment in Pilates Anatomy, Second Edition, are invaluable for every student of Pilates, from beginner to advanced."
-Marika Molnar, PT, LAc, FIADMS, Director of Westside Dance Physical Therapy and Clinical Advisor for the PhysicalMind Institute
