WHAT IS STOTT PILATES®?
STOTT PILATES® is a contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates. Co-founders Moira and Lindsay G. Merrithew, along with a team of physical therapists, sports medicine and fitness professionals, have spent more than two decades refining the STOTT PILATES® method of exercise and equipment. This resulted in the inclusion of modern principles of exercise science and spinal rehabilitation, making it one of the safest and effective methods available. This clear and detailed approach forms the basis for STOTT PILATES® training and certification programs. It's used by rehab and prenatal clients, athletes, celebrities and everyone in between.
- For those who suffer from pain or limited function: Pilates as part of a comprehensive evaluation and treatment program by Licensed Physical Therapists.
- After completing your rehabilitation program: Continuation of Pilates as a private or semi-private client with our STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructors.
- For those who do not need Physical Therapy Services, but wish to pursue Pilates as part of their fitness program: Private and semi-private STOTT PILATES® sessions on state-of-the-art Pilates equipment.
