No matter your age, your fitness level or your goals, your body needs Pilates.

The Studio

Pilates Plus aims to help individuals bring back the natural curve of their spine and align the body in order to enhance their confidence. Pilates Plus studios are composed of brand new and original Stott equipment and our main priority is giving high quality workouts to our clients. 

The Workout

Pilates is a low-impact exercise which focuses on strengthening the muscles. It is a type of exercise that was introduced by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. He developed a new physical fitness system calling this method as the “art of controlled movements” and said that, if it was properly executed, it would feel like a workout. Pilates aims to improve postural alignment and flexibility but also targets the core.

The Community

There are two types of instructors in the studio- the seniors and the juniors. The seniors are the instructors that are Stott certified and have undergone the proper trainings in the Vivian Zapanta studio in Manila. On the other hand, the junior instructor are the instructors that are only trained by the senior instructors.

Pilates is a low-impact exercise which focuses on strengthening the muscles. It is a type of exercise that was introduced by Joseph Pilates in the early 20th century. He developed a new physical fitness system calling this method as the “art of controlled movements” and said that, if it was properly executed, it would feel like a workout. Pilates aims to improve postural alignment and flexibility but also targets the core. There are two main classes of Pilates workouts: the mat and reformer classes. For the mat workouts, these are done on mats that are slightly thicker than yoga mats and focuses on cushioning your pressure points. On the other hand, reformer classes are done on a machine called a reformer which is a sliding platform that has a stationary foot bar, springs, and pulleys that provide resistance based on the level of difficulty of the class. Although there are other types of equipment that are used in Pilates, the reformer became the main machine that was established.

At present, Pilates is being practiced and taught all over the world in numerous studios using different techniques in various versions. Each version has it’s own number of principles but in general, there are seven.

What is STOTT Pilates?

STOTT Pilates is an approach of Pilates that focuses on musculo-skeletal conditioning that targets strength and stability. The co-founders of this method are Lindsay G. Merrithew and Moira Merrithew. Together with a team of physical therapists and fitness professionals, they were able to refine the STOTT Pilates method by combining modern principles of exercise science, fascial fitness and spinal rehabilitation. This created one of the most effective and safest methods available. STOTT Pilates is normally used by rehab, post-rehab, and prenatal clients, athletes, and everyone in between.

About Pilates Plus

Anchor 1

Pilates Plus first opened in 2014 with only four instructors- two seniors and two juniors. It had the goal of helping individuals bring back the natural curve of their spine and align the body in order to enhance their confidence. The studio practices Stott Pilates. There are two types of instructors in the studio- the seniors and the juniors. The seniors are the instructors that are Stott certified and have undergone the proper trainings in the Vivian Zapanta studio in Manila. On the other hand, the junior instructor are the instructors that are only trained by the senior instructors.

Pilates Plus started with only one studio which is located in Obrero. Throughout the years, the number of clients grew as well as the number of instructors. Eventually, the studio became too crowded and small that we thought it would be time to rebrand and open a new one. At present, we now have two studios. One is located in Obrero and the other one is located in Matina. We hope to open another branch located in the North in the near future.

Pilates Plus studios are composed of brand new and original Stott equipment and our main priority is giving high quality workouts to our clients. Both our studios have spacious parking located on the premises. Now that we have rebranded and started a new studio, we have new amenities such as a shower room, a private rest room, and multiple dressing rooms.
