A super tasty ‘Croccantella’, which means crunchy in Italian, but at the same time fresh and perfect for the summer! ☀️

* 250g 00 flour
* 300g water
* 260g tomatoes
* 30g pine nuts
* Pecorino romano cheese 70g
* Stracciatella cheese
* Barilla pesto with basil and lemon

200°C static oven for 50 min
220°C ventilated oven for 10/15 min
(Cooking is very important! The success depends on it, and the crust must also form on the surface from the thickness of the crunchy. If it hasn’t formed, it means that it has to cook again, if it remains too hard, cook it less next time)

Shoulder Bridge header 1

Shoulder Bridge

The Shoulder bridge is an exercise seen in all genres of Fitness and is a must-have for strengthen the glutes and hamstrings while also working the core to stabilise the pelvis.

A basic Shoulder Bridge starts supine (laying face up) with the legs bent, parallel, hip-distance apart, and arms long by the sides.
Inhale to prepare then as you exhale stabilise the pelvis and spine in a neutral position and extend the hips to lift the pelvis off the mat, creating a bridge position from shoulders to knees. Inhale to stay then lower back down again stabilising in neutral position on the out breath.

Leg lifts, hip dips or other equipment can be added to increase resistance or to really challenge the stability the pelvis.
Definitely a firm favourite!

STOTT Pilates Method

Here at CorpoStudio we teach the STOTT Pilates Method but maybe your wonder what it is exactly, well we’ll let you know!
STOTT Pilates is a contemporary approach to the original exercise method pioneered by Joseph Pilates. The STOTT Pilates Method was co-founded by Lindsay G. Merrithew and Moira Merrithew, along with a team of physical therapists, sports medicine and fitness professionals, that spent three decades refining and improving it to make it one of the safest and most effective fitness programmes available.
The method aims to develop optimal neuromuscular strength with flexibility thanks to the help of the 5 bio-mechanical principles that act as the foundation of the technique. They are:

  • Breathing
  • Pelvic Placement
  • Rib Cage Placement
  • Scapular Movement & Stabilisation
  • Head & Cervical Placement
By introducing these principles and reinforcing them, awareness of how the body moves is developed. This mind-body awareness ensures focus on precision and control in any Pilates program.

What are the benefits of STOTT Pilates?

  • Builds core strength
  • Improves posture and stability
  • Increases flexibility, balance and coordination
  • Improves muscular balance and strength
  • Increases muscular endurance and tone
  • Prevents injury and heightens body awareness
  • Enhances athletic performance
  • Relieves stress and back pain
