Stott Pilates is a contemporary take on the original Pilates method. It incorporates modern innovations in exercise, with extra attention paid to spine and joint health. For example, students may perform particular moves with a curved back in order to restore the spine's natural shape and keep muscles balanced. Despite these differences, Stott Pilates boasts many of the same benefits as its predecessor: leaner muscles, improved strength and flexibility, and a stronger core. At Om Sweet Om Pilates Center, practitioners learn this method in mat classes, private lessons, and equipment classes, which incorporate accoutrements designed to intensify the effects of Pilates.
