The STOTT PILATES® Method
The STOTT PILATES® method is a contemporary approach to the original teachings of Joseph Pilates. STOTT PILATES® incorporates modern exercise principles, including contemporary thinking about spinal rehabilitation and athletic performance enhancement.
Practicing pilates is easy on the joints and allows for three-dimensional movement patterns to facilitate optimal fitness results. Pilates workouts can be diverse but can be tailored to each person. Our fitness professionals are fully certified in the STOTT PILATES® method and our studio provides client instruction as well as education to fitness and health professionals.
GYROTONIC® and gyrokinesis®
GYROTONIC® methodology allows users to stretch and strengthen muscles, while stimulating and strengthening connective tissues in and around the joints of the body. These exercises are synchronized with corresponding breathing patterns, thus enhancing aerobic and cardiovascular stimulation and promoting nuero-muscular rejuvenation.
GYROKINESIS® group classes offer a systematic approach to work throught the seven elements of spinal movement, gently working the muscles and joints through rythmic and undulating movements. The movements are fluid making exercise appear and feel more like a dance than like traditional yoga. We offer GYROTONIC® and GYROKINESIS® Certification Courses for teacher training as well as client sessions.
