Available CEC Workshops

STOTT PILATES® Athletic Conditioning on the Mat

Developed by the Merrithew™ team this workshop demonstrates dynamic movements that take full advantage of the body’s own weight and gravity. Guaranteed to develop ultimate strength and stability, particularly through the core, this workshop features an intense abdominal series, sequences with rotation and mobilization as well as a section dedicated to front and side planks. Learn mat-based sequences in an interval format that increase in speed and intensity and work through the local and global stabilizing and mobilizing systems.

STOTT PILATES® Flexion Free Mat

Pilates Instructors meet a variety of clients who are restricted in their movements for a variety of reasons. Often spinal flexion is contraindicated due to some specified concern. Learn how to modify Pilates exercises in a range of intensity levels to create workouts that achieve the primary goal of limiting spinal flexion while providing an effective full-body workout. Small hand weights, stability cushions and the flex-band® exerciser are used to increase upper body resistance while further challenging the stability of the torso in a neutral alignment.

This exciting, fast-paced workout, developed by the Merrithew™ team, uses the Fitness Circle® resistance ring in innovative ways to add variety and challenge to group classes or personal training programs. Learn fun yet demanding programming designed to compliment Matwork and motivate clients. Let the power of the Fitness Circle increase intensity while maintaining a focus on core connection and exercise execution.

STOTT PILATES® Athletic Conditioning on the Reformer, Level 4
