The Activities for Life Center at Frostburg State University will offer an Intermediate Stott Pilates class on Tuesdays, Feb. 10 to May 4 (no class March 23) from 5:45 to 6:45 p.m. in the Cordts Physical Education Center Room 160. The fee is $100. Participants must register in advance; some Pilates experience is beneficial.
Stott Pilates is a contemporary, anatomically based approach to Joseph Pilates' original exercise method. Its exercises safely deliver optimal strength, flexibility and endurance, without adding bulk. Stott Pilates improves core strength and balances the muscles around the joints, improving the way the body functions, looks and feels. Stott Pilates incorporates modern exercise principles, including contemporary thinking about spinal rehabilitation and performance enhancement. Benefits of Stott Pilates include longer, leaner muscles; improved posture, increased core strength/stability and peripheral mobility; injury prevention; heightened body awareness. It complements other methods of exercise and can improve balance and performance in sports.
Jennifer Christophel, Stott-certified matwork instructor, will lead the class. All participants must prove their own mats. A minimum of seven participants is required to hold the class. For information and registration, contact Amy Nazelrod, Center Coordinator, at (301) 687-7934.
