the classical method

The classical Pilates method is a system of exercise that emphasizes core muscles, precise movements, and mind-body connection. Created by Joseph Pilates, it includes over 500 exercises performed on mats and specialized equipment to improve strength, flexibility, and balance. It remains a popular choice for full-body workouts.


Mr. Mrad Mouawad, a licensed physical therapist and Pilates teacher trained at the Pilates Center of Boulder Colorado by the renowned “Tailor sisters” Amy and Rachelle in 2012, established the Barefoot Pilates Studio in 2013. The Pilates Center of Boulder, referred to as “The Harvard of Pilates,” is dedicated to upholding the principles and heritage of Joseph H. Pilates’ authentic method.


The Pilates method, developed by J. Pilates, uses specialized equipment to strengthen muscles and balance neuromuscular force at the joint level. This approach not only improves flexibility and joint range of motion, but also enhances musculoskeletal alignment and stimulates circulation. Additionally, it encourages the development of new neuromuscular patterns, heightens body awareness, and enhances coordination with greater precision.


The classical Pilates method uses J. Pilates’ specialized equipment to strengthen muscles and balance neuromuscular force at the joint level, while promoting circulation, flexibility, joint range of motion, and proper musculoskeletal alignment. It also promotes new neuromuscular patterns, body awareness, and precise coordination. These benefits can prevent future injuries and reduce or relieve chronic pain. Overall, the method is designed to improve physical function and enhance overall well-being.
