About STOTT Pilates

STOTT PILATES*: Intelligent exercise. Profound results.*

CorSano Pilates uses STOTT PILATES as the foundation of its training approach. The world’s most recognized name in Pilates, STOTT PILATES is a contemporary approach to the original method pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates. Lindsay and Moira 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. The refined method incorporates modern principles of exercise science and spinal rehabilitation, fascial integration, muscle conditioning and athletic performance enhancement—making STOTT PILATES one of the most effective and safest Pilates methods available.

The STOTT PILATES Five Basic Principles are the cornerstone of the method. Additional emphasis is placed on pelvic and shoulder girdle stabilization, as well as the importance of modifying the exercises and equipment based on an individual’s physical capabilities. Unlike some approaches that may promote a flat back, STOTT PILATES exercises are designed to restore the natural curvatures of the spine and rebalance the muscles around the joints. This clear and detailed approach forms the basis of CorSano Pilates’ customized approach to core-based training.

CorSano Pilates provides fitness and training programs based on the philosophy that effective and responsible exercise is the foundation to a better lifestyle. While no form of exercise is appropriate for absolutely everyone, STOTT PILATES exercises help men and women of all ages develop optimal strength, flexibility, endurance and posture without building bulk or stressing joints. As with any training program, you should always consult with a medical professional before beginning. Michele Carini, owner of CorSano Pilates and STOTT PILATES Certified Instructor, specializes in creating modified programs for those with physical limitations.

The perfect complement to cardiovascular exercise, athletic training or rehabilitation, CorSano Pilates can help you tone your body, feel revitalized and move with ease. The benefits are countless! Everyone from rehab patients, elite athletes, baby boomers and older individuals will see a difference.
