The Rise Pilates Approach
Rise Pilates Bristol has chosen to base its pilates principles around the STOTT PILATES approach. STOTT PILATES incorporates modern exercise principles and applies practices in biomechanics, athletic performance enhancement and rehabilitation. The exercises are designed to restore the natural curvature of the spine and to strengthen and rebalance the muscles surrounding the joints. The modifications in each exercise allow adaptation for different posture types, allowing it to be adaptable to sports-specific training as well as everyday life.
The STOTT PILATES method has a foundation of 5 basic principles: breath, pelvic placement, rib-cage placement, scapula movement and head and neck placement. If you want to fast-track your progression then you can learn these basics in one to one sessions.
Please also note that if you are recovering from an injury or operation or deemed to require more than an average level of attention from our instructor then you will be required to attend a one to one session for the instructor to carry out a postural analysis. This is so we can tailor and adapt your pilates experience with us including producing you a specific set of home exercises to do alongside your weekly group classes.
