what to expect
Pilates is a method of exercise that incorporates intentional, focused and flowing movements, core control, spinal mobility, alignment, and breathing. We use a variety of Pilates apparatuses to provide assistance or resistance allowing you to move through a greater range of motion with ease and control. This ultimately creates positive movement experiences which builds confidence and carries over to functional tasks.
We offer an array of Stott Pilates equipment including:
Rehab V2 Max Plus™ Reformer facilitates limitless exercise possibilities. This one-of-a-kind unit multi-tasks as a Reformer, virtual Cadillac and raised Mat platform which accommodates for those undergoing rehabilitation and are unable to get onto their mat. It offers variable angles of resistance, providing an increased range of motion, making it the premier tool for Pilates-based sport-specific, rehab and cross-training movements.
Split Pedal Stability Chair is a multi-functional machine that can be adjusted to train most muscle groups. This Pilates tool is ideal for you if you’re in rehabilitation or those who need to stay in a seated or upright position, which helps muscles while providing a full-body workout. It also facilitates high-performance exercises for athletes and fitness enthusiasts.
Spring Wall mounted unit allows versatility to perform exercises in standing, kneeling, sitting, side-lying, supine or prone and is ideal for elite athletes as well as rehabilitation clients.
Balanced Body® CoreAlign is an apparatus designed uniquely to encourage standing postures and movements that help to improve the mind-body connection through functional movements and deep stretching postures to help overall body strength, stability, core-controlled aerobic training, balances muscles after injury and improves physical performance. The challenge of these movements is created through resistance tubing that can vary from very light to heavy, thus creating a full spectrum of movements to challenge clients of all levels.
Back 2 Normal offers individual Pilates sessions and custom packages to suit your needs and interests. We incorporate Pilates into our rehabilitation for injury recovery, athletic performance and wellness programs to enhance performance and fitness.

Yoga and Pilates have similarities. They both incorporate elements of mind-body connection and emphasize deep breathing. Pilates is different because it flows through a series of movements in a more systematic, dynamic way that incorporates resistance equipment.
