Pilates & Yoga mats are an inexpensive workout essential for all fitness enthusiasts. Portable and versatile, our mats provide the foundation for your matwork routine at home or at the studio.
When washed regularly, stored appropriately and replaced when worn out, a STOTT PILATES mat can become your favourite accessory for a variety of Pilates exercises and instruction. Some STOTT PILATES mats are machine washable (Jute Mat, Hot Yoga Mat™) which allows for quick and easy cleaning – although to prolong the life of your mat we recommend hand washing as a gentler alternative.
For more intense workout sessions, you can also wipe your mat with a cloth dipped in soap suds or laundry powder solution for thorough clean. This kind of cleaning can be applied to our popular Hot Yoga Mat Plus™ which is an ideal mat for hot yoga practice with its absorbent microfiber surface and non-slip grip bottom. For a deeper clean, we recommend soaking the mat in the bathtub and allow to air dry.
Interested in trying a Reformer? The Reformer is often the first major equipment purchase for anyone serious about Pilates. STOTT PILATES Reformers are favored among Pilates professionals for their superior adaptability, versatility, craftsmanship and smooth carriage ride.

The unique spring resistance of this machine helps generate smooth muscular contractions that develop strength without building bulk.

With our innovative Reformers finding homes with celebrities, sports teams and even amongst avid users around the world, be assured you are making the right choice; which is why we are The Professional’s Choice™.
Choice of Reformer is based on comfort, safety, efficiency and ease of use. To select the Reformer that’s best for you and/or your clients, consider who will be using the unit, space availability and long-term goals of your Pilates program. Top sellers in the Reformer category include the Professional Reformer™, Group SPX® Reformer series, and the At Home SPX® Reformer. STOTT PILATES Reformers are available as extended models with 6 inches in length added to the supporting rails and carriage. These are ideal for those people taller than 6’4” wanting the comfort of a longer machine.
