About STOTT PILATES® and Catherine Bogard
Catherine Bogard is a STOTT PILATES® Certified Instructor. The STOTT PILATES Method was developed with input from physical therapists and sports medicine professionals and is a safe and highly effective contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by the late Joseph Pilates.
STOTT PILATES incorporates modern exercise principles about spinal rehabilitation and athletic performance enhancement. For example, some approaches promote a flat back, whereas STOTT PILATES exercises are designed to restore the natural spinal curvature and rebalance the muscles around the joints. STOTT PILATES also places more emphasis on scapular stabilization than other Pilates disciplines.
STOTT PILATES continues to define and develop the method as science advances to ensure that it remains current, relevant, and yields positive results.
Catherine also holds a B.S.E. in Dance and has studied Modern Dance and Ballet with some of the world’s foremost performers and educators, including the world-renowned Modern Dance Master, Bill Evans. She was a member of the University of Arkansas Dance Company for four years and has performed in Northwest Arkansas; Cambridge, Massachusetts; and Seattle, Washington.
Catherine’s clients have ranged from dance and ice-skating backgrounds to stay-at-home moms and seniors. Many have testified that under her instruction, they attained a level of physical fitness they had not previously believed possible as well as a heightened level of awareness and sense of well-being.
Catherine is available by appointment.
