The STOTT PILATES® Advanced Matwork workout we know today has been through myriad changes since it was originally developed by Joseph Pilates. Join us on a journey as we examine the classical roots of the exercises and how the inclusion of updated information has resulted in a more contemporary approach. Experience the movements as they were originally taught and see how the implementation of the STOTT PILATES Five Basic Principles and foundations of anatomy and biomechanics has adapted them. Explore how the exercise order, focus and performance has advanced and continues to develop as we learn more about optimal movement.
