STOTT PILATES® was invented over 30 years ago by two Canadians, Lindsay and Moira Merrithew, and is a contemporary approach to the original method created by Joseph H. Pilates. The training center, with its headquarter in Toronto, Canada, is one of the oldest and most renowned in the world. It is the result of a long collaboration with physiotherapists, sports physicians and fitness experts and is considered one of the safest and most effective methods.
It takes into account the new knowledge we have about the body and biomechanics today. Special attention is paid to the execution of movements and the stabilization of the shoulder blades. In addition, there are three levels of difficulty, Essential, Intermediate and Advanced, which allow for real progression. This method is regularly updated through workshops and continuous training of the instructors.

Breathing is also very important, slow and deep, which is excellent for the abdominal belt and the oxygen supply to the muscles.
