STOTT PILATES® Essential Matwork and Athletic Conditioning on Stability Cushions™

Add a new dimension and intensive core training to your workouts with ® Stability Cushions™. This workshop, developed by the Merrithew Health and Fitness™ team, will combine Essential-level Matwork and athletic conditioning exercises in a whole new way with the addition of a pair of cushioned disks. The inherent instability of the inflated disks requires even greater activation of the muscles of the torso, shoulders and hips to control instability. Exercises are designed to elicit greater proprioceptive awareness and recruit the deep support systems of the whole body while developing greater coordination and control. Used alone or together, the Stability Cushions provide a new way to challenge your clients, taking everyday Essential Matwork to another level, then, bridge the gap between simple core training routines and functional movement patterns necessary in athletic conditioning.
