Joseph H Pilates (1881 – 1967): Act Like an Animal

Olga Tamara Vice President PAA sourced this article and posted it on the PAA, 14th April 2015. This is an unedited version of an article written by Robert Wernick in 1962 and published in Sports Illustrated, 12th February 1962.   KEEP IN SHAPE: ACT LIKE AN ANIMAL!

PAA Conference Darling Harbor Sydney

The PAA organised a fabulous event again this year.  The International Conference Center, ICC, Darling Harbor, Sydney was a wonderful venue.  Clean and new, floor space was adequate, as you will be aware Pilates Reformers Cadillac’s etc take up a lot of room plus bodies.  The food provided was scrumptious and the National and International Presenters were superb.
