Joseph Pilates’ history / biography is reasonably well known, but there’s always more to learn. In honour of his birthday (his 129th birthday – wow!) and for my own personal reference, I’m including links to two biographical references.
1. This is an excellent and comprehensive synoptic biography http://www.easyvigour.net.nz/pilates/h_biography.htm
2. This is an awesome cartoon of Pilates’ life https://www.youtube.com/embed/vWkxhtfw0A8
