While a few exercises mimic the Pilates Reformer exercises , most of the Spring-Wall exercises are unique and different from the Reformer. Because there is resistance coming from above with the unique Spring-Wall, clients are able to practice therapeutic to enhance shoulder stabilization. Because one spring can be used at at time, many exercises also offer oblique stabilization challenges. The Spring-Wall is the ideal class for new clients, people with back issues, and anyone who needs to strengthen the upper body and decrease neck tension.
We offer STOTT PILATES® Spring Wall classes here at Stability Pilates and Physical Therapy every Wednesday at 11am! More classes to be added soon at www.stabilityatlanta.com/classes

Honoring Joseph Pilates’ life
October 9th marks the anniversary of the day Joseph Pilates passed away.
There are many legends surrounding his death, but it seems that his death was the result of respiratory failure – due to the exposure to smoke inhalation during a fire in the building where he worked and lived, as well as years of smoking cigars. Ironically, despite his emphasis on proper breathing technique and improvement of lung efficiency, it appears that he suffered from emphysema.
His obituary reads like an advertisement for his methods:
The above obituary appeared in the New York Times on October 10, 1967.
Sadly, Joseph never got to see the widespread adoption of his methods. His vision was for Contrology to be taught and practiced in schools all throughout the US. If only he knew that it didn’t take much longer for his work to be practiced worldwide! No matter where you go these days, chances are that you are within walking distance of a fully equipped Pilates studio.
“Patience and persistence are vital qualities in the ultimate successful accomplishment of any worthwhile endeavor.” Joseph Pilates
Thank you Joseph Pilates for your patience and persistence, and for the incredible body of work you have left behind!
