What is STOTT PILATES®?

Pilates PhotoSTOTT PILATES® is a contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates. A team of physical therapists, sports medicine experts, and fitness professionals have spent more than a decade refining the STOTT PILATES® method of exercise and equipment. This has resulted in the inclusion of modern principles of exercise science and spinal rehabilitation as well as graded exercise modifications, making it one of the safest and most effective methods available. Therefore, STOTT PILATES® is practiced by seasoned athletes, seniors, healthy adults and everyone in between!

In addition, as well as incorporating pelvic stability, each movement includes a complete range of circular motion and full articulation of stabilized joints. All major muscle groups are worked interdependently with corresponding breathing patterns. GYROTONIC® TRAINING compliments pilates training, strength training or any type of physical activity.
