Why do Pilates?
Why Stott Pilates®?
Often referred to as the "Ivy League of Pilates", STOTT PILATES® combines modern exercise principles, and applies proven and accepted practices in biomechanics, rehabilitation and athletic performance enhancement. Teachers complete extended training over several years to certify in instruction and are required to maintain certification, offering students the assurance of a world wide reputation.
The Pilates Method offers an advanced programme of exercises designed to restore the natural curves of the spine and rebalance the muscles around the joints. This involves placing more emphasis on pelvic and scapular stabilisation, and preparatory exercises and modifications allow the technique to be appropriate for many different body types and abilities, and making it applicable to both sport-specific training and everyday life.
All classes are suitable for beginners and improvers; and all levels of fitness and age group.
Our focus lies in "noticing" the habits of the body, the common imbalances; and the techniques to build changes into your daily life. Here are some of the benefits reported:
