About Stott Pilates

Pure Pilates relies on the Stott Pilates method,    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 over 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.

Stott Pilates Method VS other Pilates techniques

Stott Pilates incorporates modern exercise principles, including contemporary thinking about spinal rehabilitation and athletic performance enhancement. For example, some approaches may promote a flat back, whereas the exercises that comprise the Stott Pilates method are designed to restore the natural curves of the spine and rebalance the muscles around the joints, placing more emphasis on scapular stabilization. In addition,  there are preparatory exercises and other modifications that cater to a  variety of body types and abilities, making it a viable way to enhance the everyday life of nearly anyone.
