Unlike any other exercises, with pilates, the amount of tensions and injuries are small since it is a light exercise yet it has various benefits. Zillah mentioned pilates is great way for you to correct your postures!

For Zillah, being a STOTT Pilates Instructor means that you have to adapt to different situations. Each client might has a different way of communicating in which Zillah have to prepare for. She has encountered different types of client.

One of the most memorable experiences she had from being a STOTT Pilates Instructor was when she had a client with low autoimmune and scoliosis. Her client also has to use wheelchair whenever he or she goes. Moreover, her client also has trouble going to work. He or she has to take a sick leave every two weeks or so in a month. However, ever since her client started doing pilates, her client does not need his or her wheelchair anymore and now, she only need to take a sick leave every three days per month. Pilates changes her client’s life! Amazing!
