STOTT PILATES METHODOLOGY

STOTT PILATES incorporates modern exercise principles, and applies proven and accepted practices in biomechanics, rehabilitation and athletic performance enhancement. After realising the benefits of the concepts of the original Pilates method, and in collaboration with a team of physical therapists/physiotherapists, sports medicine and exercise professionals,  Merrithew dissected and re-connected this unique form of exercise into a comprehensive, systematic, contemporary approach to the original teachings of Joseph Pilates.

STOTT PILATES exercises are designed to restore the natural curves of the spine and rebalance the muscles around the joints. This involves placing more emphasis on pelvic and scapular stabilisation, and integration of all the parts of the body into one. As well, preparatory exercises and modifications allow the technique to be appropriate for many different body types and abilities, making it applicable to sport-specific training and everyday life.

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, placing more emphasis on scapular stabilization. 

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 five basic principals of STOTT Pilates?

The following Five Basic Principles form the foundation of the method from which our education and all of our programming is developed.

Whether performed on a mat or on specialised equipment, application of the following biomechanical principles will ensure the realisation of maximum benefits from Pilates exercises:

  • Breathing
