The research analyzes the relationship between health and wellness through a look at pilates: an isometric-postural workout for the athletic preparation and bodily rehabilitation. The analysis was conducted in London, with a qualitative methodology. A set of 20 indepth-interviews were conducted and a direct observation made it to understand the emerging cul-tural shapes in the world of pilates and the differences of approach to the technique compared to Italy.
