Question ID: 458888
I'm looking for Pilates classes that make me appear taller.
I live in West Los Angeles (West LA) which is close to Santa Monica
and Beverly Hills, zip code 90025.
If you can also get the prices it would be great.
From what I understand, Pilates helps you with your body posture
(straightens your back) and at the same time it helps you get in
shape. I noticed there's a special kind of Pilates called Stott
Pilates and it speclizes in fixing the posture and making a person
appear taller.

Thank you,

Hello fateddie-ga,

I have found a studio in Marina Del Rey that teaches Stott Pilates. 
Would this information be sufficient to answer your question?

You see, that's the problem. Marina Del Ray is a bit too far. I want
something within 10 miles at most. Sorry I forgot to mention that in
the question.

Regarding Stott Pilates making you taller:
?Q./ Will I grow by doing STOTT PILATES? 
Much of pilates exercise is mind-body conditioning which requires you
to look within, focus on your breathing, and feel the subtle
differences within your body. Many people come to a very meditative
state while doing pilates, and therefore will grow mentally and
spiritually over time through this type of exercise. There are also
incidences where by strenghening the abdominal muscles people have
learned to maintain their stretch and thereby are measurably taller.
Physically, many people have been known to actually get taller by
working out consistently. By emphasizing posture, you learn to stretch
your spine through pilates, and by strengthening the deep abdominals
to support the rest of the body you learn to maintain your height
effortlessly. The most impressive results are those reported by people
who have slouched most of their lives and after a few months of
practicing pilates they are able to stand up much straighter, and are
therefore measurably taller. However, even people having studied dance
consistently for years before beginning a pilates program, have
noticed an increase in their heights over time.?

I hope you have found this information helpful.
