“It’s not just about looking good, it’s about feeling good”

-Wally Stothers (owner)


Our Mission

At South County Pilates, I want clients to understand what is functionality – functional strength and functional flexibility – what it means to have proper range of motion and body mechanics, what is considered normal, and how they can apply that in their daily life.  When they understand these concepts, they can then apply it to their exercise, sports, or hobbies, whatever they may be.  Understanding these concepts is how we can age well and live pain free.


Meet Wally

Wally, the lead instructor and owner at South County Pilates, distinguishes himself from other instructors with his extensive background in both Pilates and Martial Arts. Wally trained under Grand Master Sang Kyu Shim, received multiple letters of commendation from the Kukkiwon, and obtained the rank of Master. In 1986, Wally received the Instructor of the Year Award from the World Martial Arts Association (WMAA) for his dedication and deep understanding of body movement and function. Wally was captivated by the way in which Pilates strengthens and balances to create a healthy, functional body. He received his Pilates instruction and certification under Rael Isacowitz, founder of Body Arts and Science International (BASI).

Wally has more than 35 years of experience in the fitness and martial arts industries. Since 2003, Wally has owned and operated his own Pilates studios in Orange County.


About Pilates

The Pilates Method is not just exercise. It is a series of controlled movements engaging your body and mind, performed on specifically designed exercise apparatus and supervised by extensively trained instructors. Our method of Pilates is an exercise system designed to focus on improving flexibility, strength, endurance, and improve posture, alignment, coordination and balance for a total body workout without building bulk.
