A reformer studio, but so much more!

PRIVATE PILATES: Focused on you and your goals. These private sessions are specifically designed to give new clients a feel for pilates while introducing the different types of equipment used in our studio: the reformer, cadillac, stability chair and matwork. We will identify your strengths and weaknesses and help you to understand the movement necessary to benefit from pilates. This also gives our highly-trained Stott instructors the opportunity to work with you one-on-one to focus on your personal body movement, needs and goals. Private sessions are available seven days a week.

DUET: A great way to get a fun work-out with a friend or partner, with the personalized attention of a private session at a discounted rate.

SEMI-PRIVATE: Designed for three to five clients. Using the reformer, mat work and props, we create a well-rounded routine that is appropriate for all participants. Our sessions are broken down into four levels of beginners to accelerated.

Our private, duet and semi-private offerings include:

 

REFORMER: The Pilates reformer is a traditional piece of Pilates equipment, originally designed by Joseph Pilates while living in a World War I internment camp to help rehabilitate immobilised soldiers.  The modern reformer is a narrow bed with a sliding carriage, straps and pulleys, made more or less resistant by adding or removing springs Inviting the length we want to create in the body and training the body to sustain that length. Pushing and pulling with legs or arms against the resistance of the springs, carriage, and body weight is strength building to the total body.  The exercises provide enough resistance and movement variety to help build strong bones, build muscle, create more balance, improve posture and feel fabulous!

MAT WORK  Mat work is the basis for the entire Pilates system of exercises. It is a series of exercises that are done on the floor using your body weight to provide resistance.

YOGA: A restorative practice focused on integrating breath with movement and bringing length to tight areas – the original mind-body practice.
