What is Stott Pilates?
Stott Pilates is based on the original works of German-born Joseph Pilates who designed a series of exercises that uses both mental and physical techniques to condition the body. His methods were used primarily by dancers, however, in recent years these methods have been introduced into the health and fitness industry. .
Stott Pilates training programmes are ideal for personal trainers, physiotherapists, health professionals, experienced group exercise teachers and Pilates enthusiasts.
Many things have changed since Joseph Pilates first developed his techniques. We believe that our training programmes bring his techniques into the 21st Century by combining his principles with all the latest research and knowledge we have about fitness, exercise and core stability.
This has enabled us to create the Stott Pilates Method which is a scientific and educationally sound programme for fitness and health professionals, which has been developed by working extensively with physiotherapists, physiologists and qualified Pilates educationalists.
