Archival Footage, Joseph Pilates

This video clip is archival footage of Joseph Pilates and Romana Kryzanowska. Romana was a former dancer and very strong, so she was able to do any exercise Joe created. Because Romana made everything look effortless she was his protege. In this video Joe is guiding Romana through a nice progression of Chest Expansion and Thigh Stretch on an apparatus that predates the Cadillac.
