Welcome To Principle Pilates
Stott Pilates is a big part of our life and we want to share the benefits with everyone!
To walk taller, stand better, feel better, perform sport or just everyday activities in a fluid way is just a wonderful thing and Pilates does that!
The Stott Pilates method has contemporised the work of the late Joseph Pilates and applied the latest up to date information we have of the body. Using the exercises we have seen people in chronic pain and close to the operating table get better, some even taking up new sports and activities, whilst other active people continue to partake in their favourite pastimes well into their retirement. Truly remarkable in preventing injury and restoring balance to our bodies, it should be prescribed for everyday!
As well as offering Pilates to clients we also teach courses and workshops to Pilates students throughout the country.
Mission Statement. To help everyone achieve a stronger, flexible body and enjoy life to best of their ability! To spread the word and the method of Pilates to EVERYONE!

Two years later I am now practicing & studying to gain my level two Advanced certification across all pieces of equipment. This will then lead me on to train to be an Instructor Trainer.
