Review I appreciate what Gary is doing for the Pilates community putting together Joseph Pilates vision in a cohesive and enlightened manner what we intuit as teachers and as spiritual beings in order for us to understand Pilates intentions better. In this way we can intelligently express it to the world. Gary, what an honor to be inspired by you! --Colleen Glenn, Director of Education Peak Pilates International and co-founder of the Pilates Method Alliance

Gary Calderone is one of the most passionate practitioners in the industry who brings a deep heart felt love for Joseph Pilates work. He adds to that an investigatory spirit, linking principles and ideals to modern day leaders in the field of Body- Mind-Spirit. Likewise Gary's writing and lecture style is exciting and touching. --Brent Anderson, PhD., P.T., O.C.S., President Polestar Pilates Education International

With the explosive growth of Pilates, we are in danger of losing the soul of Joseph Pilates vision. Gary Calderone's work carries a message whose time has come. He dives us deep into the heart of Joe's work, placing it at dead center in the resurgence of mind/body perspective...and shines a bright and clear light on the transformational pathway that it provides for realizing our fullest potential, physically, emotionally and spiritually. --Wendy Leblanc-Arbuckle Director, Pilates Center of Austin

Because there is so much trendy hype about Pilates it is imperative that the real value of this work be spoken about loudly and creatively as Gary has done in this book. Pilates is transformative. --Rachel Taylor Segel With Amy Taylor Alpers Co-founder and Co-owner The Pilates Center Boulder, Colorado

Anyone who has had the opportunity to read this work will find themselves eagerly awaiting their next Pilates session. I myself feel more 'anchored into my bones, the earth, and my life' just having read the manuscript. --Zoe Stein Pierce, Director, Pilates at Dancescape Studio, The Premier Pilates Studio of Fort Worth,TX

There are many books on the market that describe the Pilates method in detail and precision. However, Pilates is not just another workout fad. Joseph Pilates' message is a profound commitment to the life well lived. Health is a balance of the body, mind and spirit. These are the essential elements for happiness and success. Gary Calderone has applied his study and life to the embodiment of the Pilates philosophy, reminding the reader that Pilates is more than an exercise regimen, it is a path of study and enlightenment. --Pat Guyton, PMA Certified Pilates Teacher, Pat Guyton Pilates, Inc. Pilates Conservatory

Gary asks the right questions, inviting us to think outside the box about living a balanced life through the practice of Pilates. He masterfully unlocks the essence of Pilates' greatest secret - why and how Pilates profoundly impacts both student and teacher, weaving threads from other disciplines to confirm their universal connection. He illuminates the truth about how choices for our inner health are mirrored in the manifestation of our outer experience, thereby strengthening global consciousness. Truly inspiring! ----Clare Dunphy, Peak Pilates Master Trainer, Director Progressive Bodyworks, Inc.

This book is relevant and necessary for our future and our evolutionary process. This is a service to humanity, a fertilizer for personal growth and ultimate utopian awakening. Gary's writing and his experience is authentic, he gives you a telescope glimpse of a better way to live. Gary outlines our human challenges and provides tools for rising above those inner conflicts with Pilates as the vehicle. He meets the paradox moments with compassion and strength. It is so simply sophisticated, honestly written with details and experiences that make you hungry to feel it in your body. --Maila Blossom Rider/Pilates, Yoga and Franklin Method Professional/Owner of the Pilates Yoga Company, Windsor, CO

The Pilates Path to Health: Body, Mind, and Spirit by Gary Calderone is a timely contribution to literature in the Health, Fitness and Wellness industry.

Our industry is consistently seeking new models for the delivery of integrated and results-focused initiatives that provide for the healthy lifestyles and outcomes of our clients. The Pilates approach to health truly focuses on awareness, choice and results. As an industry leader I believe this book will add value to the industry understanding of Pilates and its multifaceted benefits. Gary's writing illustrates his passion for why he and others practice and teach Pilates.

An inspiring guide to optimal human vitality and balanced living. Gary Calderone expands the definition of "fitness" in his quest to understand the mission of Joseph Pilates and the profound results of his work. --Matthew Zumann, CPT, Structural Therapist -Jennifer Golden Zumann, CPT, Medicinal Herbalist

This book is a wonderful support for individuals on a path of understanding themselves through the practice of the Pilates Method. Gary's writing illuminates aspects of these practices that transform body, mind, and spirit. In an age when Pilates mainstream popularity and easy access cause the loss of these vitals elements, it is necessary for strong voices, like this voice, to be heard, so that the depth of the Pilates Method and what it can offer the practitioner are not lost. --Melissa Macourek, Samsara Pilates

Finally a book on the Pilates Method that is a not a "how to" but a "why". Gary's book speaks to our common love of the work and the amazing power of change that we all see everyday in our practice. This book takes me back to before the copyright days when the creative differences were celebrated and there was an amazing unified feeling of how special Joseph Pilates' method was and how blessed we were to be a part of that vision. We know how cool this work is and how great it feels. Gary does a good job of attempting to define this nature of the work. ----Nan Feist, LMP, Pilates Instructor, Somatic Educator
