I consider the five Basic Principles the essence of STOTT PILATES; what distinguishes the STOTT PILATES brand from all other Pilates methods. As a trainee, if you are going to learn one single thing from our training courses, learn the Basic Principles.
I’m not totally lost when it comes to working out. Yes, some days my idea of a crunch is the one I get from a Lay’s potato chip. But I’m no stranger to fitness- I’ve been doing physical therapy pretty much since birth. Here’s the story: I was born with severely clubbed feet, which led to a whole plethora of orthopedic issues, and here I am, 10 surgeries later with a better walk!! but the osteoporosis and severe arthritis in my feet and ankles that come with the territory of being laid up, and in and out of wheelchairs during my youth.
There’s a saying I’ve been hearing over and over for the past few years, “the future is female.” While I believe this is true- there are special group of ladies that have been working towards this goal and pushing the envelope to have it all (from family and work) before us millennials showed up. Nancy Hodari, is one of these ladies – leading by example and setting the bar high for us female entrepreneurs trying to make a difference and build a business in todays ever changing world.

On the Equilibrium Studio website, we used to include the following question under our bio, "If I wasn't a Pilates instructor I would be___________"
My answer to that question was "I would start my own dance studio."
I started dance at the age of three when my mom thought it was a fun way to keep me active.

"So you just haven't lived until you try elephant on the chair! It's very hard for me to pick a favorite Pilates exercise, but that one is right at the top of the list. It makes me smile just thinking about it! I love the challenge of the balance, the intensity of the abdominal work and the fantastic stretch through the back.
We love seeing our pregnant clients staying healthy and safe during their pregnancy so when we came across this article recently, we were so thrilled with what this instructor is saying!
"One question I get asked all the time by women who are pregnant: “Is Pilates safe to do?”
And my response is: YES! During pregnancy it is important to exercise regularly and most importantly, safely.
