What is the difference between the STOTT PILATES Method and other Pilates techniques?

STOTT PILATES incorporates modern exercise principles, including contemporary thinking about spinal rehabilitation and athletic performance enhancement. For example, some approaches may promote a flat back, whereas STOTT PILATES exercises are designed to restore the natural curves of the spine and rebalance the muscles around the joints. As well, there are more preparatory exercises and modifications to cater to many different body types and abilities, making it applicable to everyday life.

What are the benefits of STOTT PILATES?

• Longer, leaner muscles (less bulk, more freedom of movement)
• Improves postural problems
• Increases core strength, stability and peripheral mobility
• Helps prevent Injury
• Enhances functional fitness, ease of movement
• Balances strength & flexibility
• Heightens body awareness
• No-impact, easy on the joints
• Can be customized to suit everyone from rehab patients to elite athletes
• Compliments other methods of exercise
• Improves performance in sports (running, golf, skiing etc.)
• Improves balance, co-ordination & circulation

What are the principles behind the STOTT PILATES Method?

STOTT PILATES exercise improves core strength and balances the muscles around the joints, improving the way your body functions, looks and feels. The Five Basic Principles focus on:

  • Breathing
  • Pelvic placement
  • Rib cage placement
  • Scapular movement
  • Head & cervical spine placement

Is PILATES exercise like Yoga?

In some respects Pilates is like Yoga. Both are considered mind-body type methods of movement; both emphasise deep breathing and smooth, long movements that encourage the mind-body connection. The difference is that while Yoga requires moving from one static posture to the next, Pilates flows through a series of movements that are more dynamic, systematic and anatomically-based incorporating resistance equipment. The goal with STOTT PILATES exercise is to strengthen the postural muscles while achieving optimal functional fitness.
