STOTT PILATES® Optimization of the Lumbo-Pelvic Region


This workshop developed by the Merrithew team consists of both lecture and practical application. The workshop explores the anatomy and biomechanics involved in a normal healthy functioning lumbo-pelvic region then applies these fundamentals in an effort to optimize function. The first part entitled Form & Function, covers the functional anatomy and therapeutic foundational concepts within the context of the lumbar spine, pelvis, hip and all associated musculature. The second part presents the Programming & Application of STOTT PILATES® exercises. This practical section relates the theory already learned to identify programming priorities and determine appropriate exercises designed to optimize the function of the lumbo-pelvic region.

Learning objectives

  1. Review the functional anatomy of the lumbo-pelvic region
  2. Understand the integrated model of joint stability and muscle classification system within the context of the lumbo-pelvic region
  3. Understand current concepts of stability, review stabilization strategies and understand programming goals for the lumbo-pelvic region
  4. Apply STOTT PILATES Biomechanical Principles of core stability, breathing and alignment to all exercises
  5. Develop recognition of optimal and non-optimal movement patterns
