  • What is the difference between STOTT PILATES 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, there is also 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.

  • Is STOTT PILATES like Yoga?

    In some respects Pilates is like Yoga. Both are considered mind-body methods of movement;both emphasize 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.

  • I have a bad back. Will I be able to do Pilates?

    Although you should always consult your physician before starting any fitness routine, a Pilates workout is gentle and controlled with no sudden jarring actions. It is more important, however, that you work with a qualified instructor to ensure that you are doing the movements correctly. An experienced instructor will be able to modify the exercises to accommodate your limitations, continually challenge you within your ability, and monitor your improvements. If you commit yourself to a consistent workout schedule you will certainly feel results.

  • Can Pilates help me lose weight? If so, how much?

    Pilates can be a positive addition to your overall weight-loss program.Weight loss occurs when the number of calories consumed is less than the number of calories expended. The most successful and healthy way to achieve weight loss is an exercise plan that includes an aerobic component coupled with a strength training component, such as STOTT PILATES exercise, and following a balanced diet. Combining Pilates with  aerobic exercise also offers additional benefits: greater mind-body connection, improved posture, flexibility and functionality.

  • Can anyone do Pilates?

    No form of exercise is appropriate for everyone, but STOTT PILATES exercise is appropriate for most
    people. As with any exercise method, you should always consult with a medical expert before beginning an exercise regime. A modified programmay be recommended if you have any physical limitations. Everyone from serious fitness enthusiasts, to rehab patients, elite athletes, and prenatal clients will see a difference.
