Service Description

Pilates is a low-impact, muscle-conditioning program. Shannon teaches the STOTT method which aims at restoring the natural curvatures of the spine and rebalancing the muscles surrounding the joints. It still adheres to the major principles of Pilates—breathing, concentration, fluidity of movement—but is distinguished by its approach to postural alignment, exercise sequencing and the use of props. There are five underlying principles of Stott Pilates: Breathing: Proper breathing ensures circulation, prevents tension and enhances focus. Pelvic Placement: Neutral and imprinted positions stabilize the pelvis and lumbar spine. Ribcage Placement: Ribcage positioning affects the alignment of the thoracic spine. Shoulder Stability: Stabilizing the scapula helps to avoid strain in the neck and upper shoulders. Head & Neck Placement: Proper placement of the cervical spine ensures its natural curvature.
