STOTT PILATES Matwork workshops cover select exercises ranging from Rehabilitation to Advanced level material. Many incorporate small resistance and balance equipment and show progressions to increase intensity. Some focus on specificity of exercise technique while others discuss applications and modifications for special populations or specific markets.

Equipment-based workshops focus on exercises performed on larger equipment including the STOTT PILATES Reformer, Cadillac and Stability Chair. Selected exercises are covered discussing application to all levels and special needs. Programming for individuals and groups is emphasized.

Designed to accelerate your practical and business skills, lecture style workshops help you learn the theory behind the practice and business of pilates. Pilates for Profit, Exam Preparation, Anatomy and Postural Analysis are just a few of the seminars we offer.
