HOW STOTT PILATES® WORKS

  • The Core of the Body – abdominals, lower back and buttocks – Supported and strengthened, they enable the rest of the body to move freely.

  • Instead of performing many repetitions of each exercise, fewer, more precise movements are done requiring proper control and form.

  • Pilates is physical conditioning first and foremost. Pilates exercises stretch and strengthen and are unique in their ability to encourage coordination between the muscles that stabilize the body.

  • Unlike other hardcore training regimens that focus specifically on isolating muscles to build muscle mass, Pilates focuses on rebalancing the muscles around the joints, working the smaller muscles and ligaments that support larger muscles and joints. This creates longer, leaner muscles, restoring the natural curves to your spine, allowing your body a greater range of motion.

  • Because your mind is required to engage with your body to perform the movement correctly, using the proper breathing techniques, you experience a new awareness of muscle function and control.

The STOTT PILATES® method of body conditioning is completely different. Instead of being a mindless exercise, it is a very mindful activity. You must concentrate on what you are doing. This intense physical concentration forms what is known as a “mind-body connection.”
