Pilates is a body-transforming exercise technique focused on strengthening the deep core muscle structure so that the entire body moves with more efficiency, mobility, and balance.

This method of training concentrates on strengthening the natural spinal position and its supporting muscles, abdominal control for a flat and firm mid-section that we refer as CORE. Each exercise lengthen and strengthen the muscles at the same time to build long and lean muscles which is a great benefit for the thighs and hips often short and tight.

Proper breathing technique further encourages the mind-body connection that so many clients find as a hidden benefit to training in this technique.

At Mendocino Pilates, Stott Pilates is taught with a focus on quality of movement and instruction, and each client is guided toward achieving their best individual ability and encouraged to achieve more than they thought possible.
