STOTT pilates classes Paphos

STOTT PILATES® exer­cises help both men and women devel­op opti­mal strength, flex­i­bil­ity, endurance and pos­ture, with­out build­ing bulk or stress­ing joints. The per­fect com­ple­ment to car­dio­vas­cu­lar exer­cise, ath­letic train­ing or reha­bil­i­ta­tion. STOTT PILATES exer­cises help you tone your body, feel revi­tal­ized, and move with ease.

What is the STOTT PILATES® Method?

STOTT PILATES is a con­tem­po­rary approach to the orig­i­nal exer­cise method pio­neered by the late Joseph Pilates. Co-founders Moira and Lind­say G. Mer­rithew, along with a team of phys­i­cal ther­a­pists, sports med­i­cine and fit­ness pro­fes­sion­als, have spent more than two decades refin­ing the STOTT PILATES method of exer­cise and equip­ment. This result­ed in the inclu­sion of mod­ern prin­ci­ples of exer­cise sci­ence and spinal reha­bil­i­ta­tion, mak­ing it one of the safest and most effec­tive meth­ods avail­able.

Why is Pilates the fastest-growing method of exercise?

Peo­ple are becom­ing increas­ingly more inter­ested in fit­ness modal­i­ties that help relieve stress. They’re also much more inter­ested in pre­ven­tion and tak­ing care of their bod­ies. They want to stay fit and look good for as long as pos­si­ble. Pilates is com­ple­men­tary to many tra­di­tional ways of work­ing out. It’s excel­lent for all ages, fit­ness lev­els and goals. Its mind-body aspect is even said to be use­ful in pre­vent­ing stress-relat­ed ill­nesses like heart dis­ease.

Can any­one do Pilates?

No form of exer­cise is appro­pri­ate for every­one, but STOTT PILATES exer­cise is appro­pri­ate for most peo­ple. As with any exer­cise method, you should always con­sult with a med­ical expert before begin­ning an exer­cise regime. A mod­i­fied pro­gram may be rec­om­mended if you have any phys­i­cal lim­i­ta­tions. Every­one from seri­ous fit­ness enthu­si­asts, to rehab patients, elite ath­letes, and pre­na­tal clients will see a dif­fer­ence.

What is the dif­fer­ence between STOTT PILATES and other Pilates techniques?

STOTT PILATES incor­po­rates mod­ern exer­cise prin­ci­ples, includ­ing con­tem­po­rary think­ing about spinal reha­bil­i­ta­tion and ath­letic per­for­mance enhance­ment. For exam­ple, some approach­es may pro­mote a flat back, where­as STOTTPILATES exer­cises are designed to restore the nat­ural curves of the spine and rebal­ance the mus­cles around the joints, there is also more empha­sis on scapu­lar sta­bi­liza­tion. As well, there are more prepara­tory exer­cises and mod­i­fi­ca­tions to cater to many dif­fer­ent body types and abil­i­ties, mak­ing it applic­a­ble to every­day life.

What are STOTT PILATES’ benefits?
  • Builds core strength and sta­bil­i­ty
  • Improves pos­ture and align­ment
  • Increas­es flex­i­bil­ity, bal­ance and coor­di­na­tion

  • Increas­es endurance and mus­cu­lar tone

  • Weight train­ing and STOTT PILATES can be com­bined in a fit­ness pro­gram and are a great com­ple­ment to each oth­er.
I have a bad back. Will I be able to do Pilates?

Although you should always con­sult your physi­cian before start­ing any fit­ness rou­tine, a Pilates work­out is gen­tle and con­trolled with no sud­den jar­ring actions. It is more impor­tant, how­ever, that you work with a qual­i­fied instruc­tor to ensure that you are doing the move­ments cor­rectly. An expe­ri­enced instruc­tor will be able to mod­ify the exer­cises to accom­mo­date your lim­i­ta­tions, con­tin­u­ally chal­lenge you with­in your abil­ity, and mon­i­tor your improve­ments. If you com­mit your­self to a con­sis­tent work­out sched­ule you will cer­tainly feel results.

Should Pilates replace my reg­u­lar workout?

STOTT PILATES exer­cise is a mus­cu­lo-skele­tal con­di­tion­ing pro­gram. It’s ide­al in com­bi­na­tion with some kind of car­dio­vas­cu­lar exer­cise (walk­ing, run­ning, aer­o­bics, aqua fit­ness etc.), and a great com­ple­ment to your weight train­ing pro­gram or ath­letic train­ing.

Is STOTT PILATES like Yoga?

In some respects Pilates is like Yoga. Both are con­sid­ered mind-body meth­ods of move­ment; both empha­size deep breath­ing and smooth, long move­ments that encour­age the mind-body con­nec­tion. The dif­fer­ence is that while Yoga requires mov­ing from one sta­tic pos­ture to the next, Pilates flows through a series of move­ments that are more dynam­ic, sys­tem­atic and anatom­i­cal­ly-based incor­po­rat­ing resis­tance equip­ment. The goal with STOTT PILATESexer­cise is to strength­en the pos­tural mus­cles while achiev­ing opti­mal func­tional fit­ness.

Can Pilates help me lose weight? If so, how much?

Pilates can be a pos­i­tive addi­tion to your over­all weight-loss pro­gram. Weight loss occurs when the num­ber of calo­ries con­sumed is less than the num­ber of calo­ries expend­ed. The most suc­cess­ful and healthy way to achieve weight loss is an exer­cise plan that
includes an aer­o­bic com­po­nent cou­pled with a strength train­ing com­po­nent, such as STOTT PILATES exer­cise, and fol­low­ing a bal­anced diet. Com­bin­ing Pilates with aer­o­bic exer­cise also offers addi­tional ben­e­fits: greater mind-body con­nec­tion, improved pos­ture, flex­i­bil­ity and func­tion­al­i­ty.

Why do celebri­ties do Pilates?

Many celebri­ties choose Pilates because not only does it improve their phys­i­cal appear­ance, it also helps with their sta­mina, stress relief, and focus. Pilates is invig­o­rat­ing and helps peo­ple feel dis­tressed. Celebri­ties known to do Pilates include: Cheryl Tiegs, San­dra Bul­lock, Ellen DeGeneres, Rod Stew­art, Sting, Martha Stew­art, Rob Mor­row, Vic­tor Gar­ber, Sofia Cop­pola, Veron­ica Ten­nant, Jen­nifer Anis­ton, and Tiger Woods.

Is it true ath­letes do Pilates?

Despite its slow, care­ful move­ments, Pilates is not for wimps! Pro ath­letes like NHL play­er Eddie Belfour, NBA star Kobe Bryant, and Ten­nis pro Mar­tina Navratilo­va ben­e­fit from using STOTT PILATES equip­ment and instruc­tion. The STOTTPILATES method places impor­tance on core sta­bil­ity and rebal­anc­ing the mus­cles mak­ing them work more effi­ciently. This helps
