Five Basic Principles: The aim of contemporary, anatomically-based Pilates training, such as STOTT PILATES, is to develop optimal neuromuscular performance by focusing on core stability, while safely balancing muscular strength with flexibility. Whether performed on a Mat or on specialized equipment, Pilates that incorporates modern theories of exercise science and spinal rehabilitation should involve the following biomechanical principles - breathing, pelvic placement, rib cage placement, scapular movement and stabilization, and head and cervical placement. By introducing these principles and reinforcing them over time, awareness of how the body moves is developed. This mind-body awareness ensures focus on precision and control to realize the full benefits of any exercise program.
