STOTT PILATES® Matwork & Reformer


Jane was first introduced to STOTT PILATES® back in 2014 after suffering from scoliosis. By practicing STOTT PILATES, a full-body, systemic approach to exercise, she miraculously improved her posture and body movement. Amazed by her progress, she decided to pursue a career as an instructor to share and promote the benefits of the STOTT PILATES method with others.

Now a Merrithew Instructor Trainer specializing in STOTT PILATES Matwork and Reformer, Jane teaches with passion to inspire and guide her students to successfully obtain their certifications. In addition, she teaches with devotion and empathy to influence her clients to achieve their physical goals.

As methodologies continue to evolve and adapt, Jane is constantly studying and learning to enhance her professional knowledge of STOTT PILATES in order to thoughtfully apply new research and practices to her courses.
