STOTT PILATES® Conditioning Towel Workout

This simple Pilates-based routine developed by the Merrithew team uses the support and resistance of a Conditioning Towel to maintain form. Ideal for those who are less flexible, the towel assists in helping increase range of motion of the joints and allows muscles to lengthen effectively. Scapular and shoulder stability are highlighted while core strength and stability are enhanced, enabling better performance in other physical activities.
