Spine Stretch Studio is an award winning multidisciplinary health care facility officially offering STOTT PILATES training, Registered Massage Therapy, Naturopathy, Acupuncture, Osteopathy, infrared sauna therapy and wellness programs.
Pilates is a unique system of stretching and strengthening exercises developed over ninety years ago by J. H. Pilates. Practiced today is a contemporary approach to the original exercise method.
Benefits of STOTT PILATES:
- longer, leaner muscles
- restore postural imbalances
- increases core strength, stability and peripheral mobility
- aids in injury prevention
- balances strength & flexibility
- heightens body awareness uniting body and mind
- no-impact, easy on the joints
- customized to suit everyone from rehab patients to elite athletes
- improves sports performance (running, swimming, golf, skiing, skating etc.)
- improves balance, coordination & circulation
At Spine Stretch Studio, we practice STOTT PILATES focusing on restoring the natural curves of the spine, rebalancing muscles surrounding the joints, and using a specific breathing pattern to engage abdominal muscles and decrease unnecessary muscle tension in the neck and shoulders. There are preparatory exercises and modifications to make the exercises safe and effective for everyone. Pilates is a stress relieving way to achieve and maintain optimal fitness and a sense of well-being.
Spine Stretch Studio is a premier 4000 sq ft facility. It is home to 2 large group class studio rooms, 2 private training rooms, 5 treatment rooms, an infrared sauna room, complementary cardio room, dressing room and shower facilities. Unlike most gyms, we proudly equip a full range of STOTT PILATES equipment. Our equipment is thoroughly maintained with continuous additions as advancing equipment becomes available. We are excited to introduce and educate the benefits of infrared heating into our facility as well as infrared bamboo charcoal mats. We are conveniently located in the heart of Aurora with parking available on site.
A one-on-one introductory session/initial assessment is recommended, but not required, to assess your needs. This session is designed to help you begin to create an awareness of your deep torso muscles and establish a foundation in the basics of Pilates. The initial assessment most effectively allows our skilled Instructors determine the appropriate level of private training or class for those with previous Pilates experience. Group class sessions or a series of private sessions will continue to develop these skills. All private one-on-one sessions are tailored to suit your needs.
Pilates training options available:
- Private personal training: one-on-one instruction
- Semi-private/Duet training: two participants with an instructor
- Instructor-led groups: join a scheduled group class or coordinate your own group of three to six people
Sessions and classes are typically one hour in length, but may be adjusted if needed. Spine Stretch Studio values quality over quantity. Our group classes are limited to 5-7 participants allowing the Instructors to observe each individual, challenge and modify as needed. Please arrive a few minutes early to receive your full session.
