Other than writing to you, my trademark “Cornu” is my greatest contribution to humankind. Cornu is an image that points to a feeling. The feeling makes alignment sensational and engages muscles more uniformly. The more uniform the engagement the more uniform the development, which is what Joseph Pilates promises “Contrology develops the body uniformly…”
Cornu Tension, created by oppositional rotation between axes, is required for the body to move through space, to stand up straight, to hold a smooth curve. Cornu applies to all humans doing all kinds of movement. Someday it will be recognized and incorporated into any serious training regime because it is the physics our body uses to move.
