The New York Times: "Punch, Crunch and Plie"

Jennifer DeLuca, who owns Body Tonic, a Pilates studio in Park Slope, Brooklyn, studied with Romana Kryzanowska, a protégée of Joseph Pilates. She said she could see how Piloxing could be a good workout, but that it should not be labeled a form of Pilates.

“There’s no mind-body connection whatsoever, and Joe wouldn’t have ever wanted music,” she said. “It just looks like a very industrious lady working to make a career for herself. I’m sure what she’s doing creates really tight butts, and a lot of people want tight butts, but to call it Pilates is a stretch.” (No pun intended, surely.)
