What form of exercise works best for you?
It is recommended that you begin with a Private Introductory Session. In this session, an instructor will explain the basic principles of alignment and begin teaching you some fundamental movements in order to familiarize yourself with the Pilates repertoire. From this session, you will gain insight into what particular needs your body has and how to address, modify or focus your attention on these during your classes. It also give you an opportunity to understand how the Pilates Method can be personalized to your body's strengths and challenges. We offer Introductory Single sessions, Introductory Packages and if you prefer working on your own specific goals on on one or two on one (you and a partner), you have the option to continue booking private or semi-private sessions to master your Pilates practice. A Private/Semi Private session can include work on any of the STOTT PILATES apparatus to customize the exercises for any individual needs.
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 program may be recommended if you have any physcial limitations. Everyone from serious fitness enthusiasts to rehab patients, elite athletes and prenatal clients will see a difference.
