Stott Pilates is the contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by Joseph Pilates. STOTT PILATES along with a team of sport scientists, physiotherapists and fitness professionals have refined this method of exercise by including modern principles of exercise science and rehabilitation.
Joseph Pilates was born in Germany in the early 1900s. He was working in England as a circus performer and boxer when he was placed in a forced intemment camp in WWI. He began to work with rehabilitating detainees who were suffering from disease and injury. He utilized bed springs and beer keg rings for resistance which have evolved into the reformer and fitness circles. Later he moved to New York City where dancers and elite athletes relied on Pilates for more strength and its rehabilitative effects.
Our mission is to create and maintain the highest standards of Pilates teaching and health coaching for each individual by creating specific programmes to help correct posture and improve health for each and every individualâ€™s needs.Iâ€™m Courtney Smith, founder and owner of Power Pilates Studios in Westville and Durban North.
After teaching at DC Pilates on the South Coast for almost 2 years I decided I wanted to expand and build a successful Pilates business and brand of my own as the South Coast was becoming very limited for me. I also wanted to expand the awareness of STOTT Pilates because I believe this Pilates method works well for all people, from the most advanced athlete to the pre or postoperative individual. I saw a need and opportunity by moving to Durban, so in 2012 I made the move and I started Power Pilates studio in Westville. It took some time to grow the business and find the perfect team to work with but it was worth all the effort because now our team of instructors are great, all very similar, yet individually different.
We all share the same vision for the business as well as for our clients.In keeping with my vision for my business, I recently (2016) opened another branch of Power Pilates Studio in Durban North.
