Pilates is increasingly popular with health practitioners as a means of rehabilitation and injury prevention because it teaches your body “neuromuscular control”. Increased control and body awareness are key factors in injury prevention, whether you are a weekend warrior or a high performance athlete.
What is STOTT Pilates?
STOTT Pilates was designed to restore the natural curves of the spine and rebalance the muscles and joints, placing emphasis on core strength, postural alignment, balance and flexibility. Different from the original Pilates method, STOTT Pilates incorporates modifications to cater to many different body types and abilities, making it applicable to everyday life.
What Pilates can do for you:
- Develop longer, leaner muscles
- Heighten body awareness and motor control
- Improve posture and alignment
- Increase core strength
- Establish stability & mobility throughout your body
- Develop better balance, coordination & circulation
Sessions are 60 minutes in length.
