Om Sweet Om Pilates Center’s instructors adhere to the Stott Pilates method, which emphasizes joint health and spinal stability by incorporating modern exercises into the traditional Pilates workout. During group classes, instructors limit attendance to four students, ensuring each student gets individualized attention. Private lessons pair each pupil with a dedicated teacher, allowing the instructors to better observe each individual’s technique while doling out verbal directions, minor hands-on adjustments, and congratulatory gold stars.
During each group session, students learn how to effectively use a number of different specialized Pilates machines, including the reformer, which supports students’ prone positions while gentle spring tension counteracts their movements, adding extra resistance to build muscle tone without bulk and its attendant purple shorts.

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.
