About the course:

This course is taught over 10 days practical learning over 2 weeks or consecutive weekends. (see dates and times below).
The STOTT PILATES Intensive Reformer teacher training course will prepare you to teach a broad range of exercises, variations and modifications performed on the Reformer, and how to combine Mat and Reformer based workouts for increased variety and intensity.

STOTT PILATES® is a contemporary, anatomically-based approach to the original exercise method developed by Joseph Pilates. Developed by former professional dancer Moira Merrithew and a team of sports medicine professionals this method incorporates modern exercise science and rehabilitation principles. The result is a method that is safe and a highly effective low-impact way to stretch, strengthen and streamline the body.

STOTT PILATES helps to develop optimal strength, flexibility, endurance and posture, without building bulk or stressing joints, which makes it the perfect complement to cardiovascular exercise, athletic training or rehabilitation.

This course is ideal for experienced studio and fitness instructors, personal trainers, sports therapists, physiotherapists and those with a background in dance looking to improve their range of skills and enhance their employability.

Pilates was a natural progression of Caroline’s professional dance career. After training at The Stella Mann College of Performing Arts in London, she went on to perform all around the world. Pilates was an integral part of her dance training and after years of dancing and injuries the importance of Pilates and its prehab/rehab showed its importance, a message Caroline was keen to share. 

Caroline went on to complete her full STOTT PILATES®Certification, and is a Merrithew™ Instructor Trainer specializing in STOTT PILATES and Total Barre®. The remarkable benefits of Pilates for rehabilitation from injury became clear to Caroline in 2013 after her pelvis, back, collar bone and ankle were each fractured in an accident. Caroline credits Pilates with giving her the ability and strength to recover faster than any of her doctors had predicted.

Based in Dubai for 11 years Caroline gained great experience Teaching Courses and workshops and found this to be very rewarding. Passing on her enthusiasm, meeting and inspiring other Instructors all the time ‘We never stop learning’.

After her first pregnancy Caroline’s interest for pre/post natal Pilates grew. She is now a specialist in both of these and is very passionate about working with mums to be and especially postnatal. Now based in the UK.
