Pilates

Pilates refers to the system of physical and mental conditioning developed by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900’s.This system focuses on training the mind and body to work together. Interned in the First World War, Joseph developed spring based exercises which later became the basis for the apparatus designed to use in conjunction with mat work.

STOTT PILATES® was founded in 1987 with a goal to promote the benefits of mind body fitness. Developed by former professional dancer Moira Stott, this approach is based on modern principles of exercise science and spinal rehabilitation.  It eliminates contraindicated movements and emphasizes neutral alignment, core stability and peripheral mobility.
