Neuro-Meridian Integrative Acupuncture
STOTT Pilates® places an emphasis on core strength, alignment, and mobility. It is beneficial to bodies of all ages and fitness levels. STOTT Pilates® also addresses the inherent muscle imbalances we all have, from being right or left-handed, participating in one-sided sports, having jobs with repetitive movement, poor bio-mechanics, or simply bad posture from our modern, computer-driven lives.
Kirsti became interested in Pilates many years ago after she retired from competitive rhythmic gymnastics. She trained at the STOTT Pilates® Training center in Toronto and became a certified STOTT Pilates® instructor for mat and reformer in 2004. She became interested in teaching Restorative Pilates to clients post-injury, post-surgery, and to those who have not been active for many years and want a lighter class. She uses her physiotherapy background to modify various Pilates exercises to make them safe yet effective.
No one should settle for sub-optimal health.
