What is STOTT PILATES Exercise?

Developed by former professional dancer Moira Merrithew, with input from sports medicine professionals, physiotherapists and massage therapists, STOTT PILATES is a contemporary, anatomically-based approach to Joseph Pilates' original exercise method.

Its exercises safely deliver optimal strength, flexibility and endurance, without adding bulk. This stress-relieving method can be performed on a mat or using specialized STOTT PILATES equipment.
