What is STOTT PILATES?
Based on the original principles of the Pilates method, STOTT PILATES is a contemporary version of the exercise technique that embraces the body’s neutral spine or natural curvature.
In addition to encouraging a neutral spine in practice, STOTT PILATES modifies the order of some exercise sequences and uses props to help clients be better prepared for their Pilates practice. STOTT PILATES uses the same breathing, fluid movement, and concentration techniques in traditional Pilates.
Benefits of STOTT PILATES Certification
Pilates offers increased, overall strength and balance to the body. By understanding and becoming aware of how we move, what muscle groups enable us to move, and how this movement affects our lives, Pilates helps us gain insight as we move and exercise our body.
In addition to improved muscle tone, core strength, flexibility, and balance, STOTT PILATES offers participants even more. With exercise that is rooted in correct postural alignment and enhanced through modified sequencing, STOTT PILATES modernizes the Pilates experience and is suitable for all levels of fitness and experience.
With STOTT PILATES, clients find they are better prepared and warmed up for a Pilates exercise regime and, with the use of specific props in addition to traditional mat and reformer work, techniques are safe and effective for all.
