Pilates at Villa Elisa

For all ages – from teenage onwards.

Athletes, non-athletes, rehabilitation patients and pre and post natal.
A body and mind discipline.

 

Stott Pilates™

Stott Pilates™ has incorporated new knowledge of biomechanics to the concepts and principles of the original method of the late Joseph H. Pilates.

Whether working with a rehabilitation client or with a small group, the aim of Stott Pilates is the same: optimal musculoskeletal performance – strength, flexibility and endurance – without risk of injury or building bulky muscles. With a focus on core stability, including pelvic and shoulder girdle stabilization, neutral alignment and breathing,  Stott Pilates also helps restore the natural curves of the spine, relieve tension and enhance self-confidence. The result : a better balanced and aligned body that looks fit, feels revitalized and moves with ease – important goals for clients – whether they are rehab patients or elite athletes.

“If at the age of 30 you are stiff and out of shape, you are old. If  at the age of 60 you are supple and strong then you are young.”  Joseph H. Pilates
