The Studio
Centrally located in Brisbane’s CBD, the studio is fully outfitted with STOTT PILATES equipment. There is a separate area for mat work and lots of room for group classes. Natural light provides a lovely feeling of openness and warmth. A combined practice also includes excellent physiotherapy services, using an ultrasound scanner to monitor your transverses abdominus muscle, as well as treat a broad range of issues. Massage Therapy and a dietitian are also available.

You are not obliged to write (and pay for) two exams if you are planning to take both courses. You may choose to wait until completion of the second course to write your exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam). If you prefer to pause between courses, you may choose to take an exam to become certified in Matwork only, and another exam (a combined Matwork and Reformer exam) after completing the second course to become certified in Reformer work. In this case two exam fees would apply.

STOTT PILATES is recognized by the American Council on Exercise, Can-Fit-Pro,
the College of Massage Therapy of Ontario as a continuing education provider.
