Intelligent Exercise. Profound Results ®
STOTT PILATES ® is a contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates. Lindsay and Moira Merrithew, along with a team of physical therapists, sports medicine and fitness professionals, have spent over three decades refining the acclaimed STOTT PILATES ® method of exercise.
The refined method resulted in the inclusion of modern principles of exercise science and rehabilitation - making it one of the safest and most effective methods available.
The STOTT PILATES ® Method
The Stott method is about restoring the natural curvature of the spine.
It helps to relieve tension and rebalance the muscles around the joints.
A focus on strengthening the core stabilisers, improving awareness of the shoulder and pelvic girdle, and a focus on breath.
The result is a body feeling more balanced, aligned and moving with ease.
There are 5 basic principles in STOTT PILATES ®:
Lateral Thoracic breathing deep into the back and side of the ribcage. It helps to enhance focus and prevent tension.
Neutral and imprinted to help stabilize the pelvis and lumbar spine.
Position of the ribcage which can affect the thoracic alignment.
Awareness of the position of the shoulders to prevent strain on the neck.
Head & Neck Placement
Position of head during movement and maintaining correct cervical curvature.
