Instructors gather up to 20 people for group Pilates mat classes, engaging cores with Joseph Pilates’ classic strengthening exercises. They slightly modify the exercises based on the Stott method, focusing on breathing, pelvic placement, rib-cage placement, scapula stabilization, and cervical placement. Fifty-minute reformer classes always take place one-on-one, with the trainer providing constant feedback on proper form. Mat classes occur every Tuesday and Thursday in Edgewater, and reformer classes take place by appointment only at the Tenafly location.
Pilates helped Regina Poblete not only get in shape after having a child, but also fight off postpartum depression by establishing a healthful physical routine. 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. Having completed the intense requirements, she began teaching for Rx Pilates.
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.
