Exercise of the Month: STOTT PILATES® Stability Chair Flow – Footwork

We often use the Split-Pedal Stability Chair for simple one-dimensional exercises, but it can be used for so much more.

In this Exercise of the Month video, Master Instructor Trainer Laureen DuBeau demonstrates how to make your Stability Chair programming more dynamic and invigorating by incorporating Fascial Movement concepts and three dimensional movement patterns into your clients’ workout routines.

This Footwork flow exercise comes from the STOTT PILATES® Stability Chair Flow Workout, an innovative workshop that focuses on progressive sequences that incorporate full flexion, extension and spiral movements to release tension and muscular restrictions.


  • Use one heavy spring on the bottom and one light spring on top; there shouldn’t be too much tension
  • Try reversing the breath pattern: exhaling with extension and inhaling with flexion
  • Stay lifted and tight through the core so you’re not sinking into the legs or feet
