STOTT PILATES® Advanced Reformer
This interactive workshop, developed by the MERRITHEW™ team, introduces participants to the highest level of Reformer repertoire. Advanced STOTT PILATES® exercises are demonstrated, explained and thoroughly broken down to explore how elements of strength, flexibility, balance, control and endurance are challenged to the highest degree. Learn how to use the distinctive nature of the Reformer to escalate workload by altering base of support and body position rather than increasing resistance. Many exercises performed continue the progression from the Essential and Intermediate levels, while others offer unique movement patterns. A major focus is on how to teach and perform the exercises safely and recognizing when clients may be ready to proceed to this level of intensity.
