"STOTT PILATES programs like ours build spine and abdominal strength, and at the same time, rebalance muscular development, increase flexibility, and improve postural alignment; These are all benefits appropriate to the needs of most people today. This approach leaves a person refreshed rather than exhausted…I think that's a big part of its appeal."
