Pilates – a way to a better you…
Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates in Germany. Pilates brought his method to the New York in the 1920’s, where he trained professional dancers including Martha Graham and George Balanchine. Over the last eighty years, a number of lineages representing varying styles of the of the Pilates method have spread throughout the world, with some adhering closely to classical form, and others modernizing the method.
All of our instructors have learned under instructor trainers in theSTOTT PILATES® lineage, founded by Moira Merrithew, who trained under the tutelage of Romana Kryzanowska, a protégé of Joseph 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.
