She wanted to share the exercise with others, so she sought certification ins Stott Pilates, a modernly modified form of the turn-of-the-century exercise.

Regina teaches both classic mat and reformer classes. On the mat, she observes the central principles of the Stott method, keeping the rib cage, pelvis, scapula, and cervical spine in alignment while letting the breath flow. In class, she guides students in the use of some exercise-enhancing props, such as resistance bands and objects that can be reimagined as funny hats. The Stott reformer also boasts modifications that enhance the exercise form’s five alignment principles while students sit, kneel, and lay on its mobile platform.
