The magic is real - exercises you can take home with you.
There is no shortage of stories involving the magic circle and its history. Legend has it that Joseph Pilates created the first Magic Circle from the metal rings that encircle wooden beer barrels, which would have been easy to find and use in early 20th Century Germany. Back then, the magic circle was merely a metal ring but has since been modified to make it more comfortable to use and can now be found in a flexible metal or rubber.
The Magic Circle can increase body awareness through increased resistance, stability, joint mobility, muscular building, and added challenge of instability. All of which help prevent injury and aid rehabilitation to the muscles.
