STOTT PILATES® Matwork Programming for Foundational Movement


In this workshop, participants experience a dynamic warm-up, combining multi-planar functional movement patterns reinforced by the STOTT PILATES Basic Biomechanical Principles and the Merrithew Fascial Movement Variables. Progressing from the STOTT PILATES Foundational Movement Assessment learned in Part A of this series. A wide variety of props is introduced, including the Foam Cushion C, Stability Barrel, Flex-Band® and Toning Balls, to enhance a client’s movement quality and address individual movement default strategies. Floor-based exercises follow that include interdisciplinary approaches designed to tackle these common faulty patterns and increase sensory awareness.

Learning objectives

  1. Review the movement assessment explorations from Part A and the common movement default strategies which may hinder a client’s quality of movement including mobility, dynamic stability & sensory awareness
  2. Discover how the use of props improves both muscle firing patterns and increases sensory awareness
  3. Experience exercises that combine the STOTT PILATES Basic Biomechanical Principles and the Merrithew Fascial Movement Variables to improve overall movement quality and function
  4. Understand how a variety of interdisciplinary concepts or exercise modalities can be applied to any client’s current program
