Pilates' work by incorporating modern knowledge about the body. The STOTT PILATES faculty's main focus is on developing the safest and most effective programming available — and teaching people to become the most professional and successful instructors they can be. Whether you're working one-on-one in a rehabilitative setting, as a personal trainer or with a small group at a fitness facility, the emphasis on high-caliber contemporary teachings remain the same: Optimal Musculoskeletal Performance - Strength, flexibility and endurance without risking injury or building bulk. With a focus on core stability, including pelvic and shoulder girdle stabilization, neutral alignment and breathing, the STOTT PILATES method also helps restore the natural curves of the spine, relieve tension and enhance self-confidence. The result: A balanced and aligned body that feels revitalized and moves with ease - important goals for your clients, whether they are rehab patients or elite athletes.
