What is
reformer pilates?

Reformer pilates involves using your self-weight in addition to the spring resistance of a reformer to deliver a dynamic full body workout. The range of motion granted by the machine serves to promote strength and flexibility by using tension and control to work on your core muscle groups in addition to those that would normally be ignored in more traditional workouts. The reformer itself and its springs are totally adjustable to suit different body sizes and skill levels.

With a myriad of different moves and exercises that could be executed, reformer pilates is able to achieve both focussed and full body workouts. You will build and tone muscles, increase stability through your joints, core stabilisation and so much more!

If you’re new to reformer pilates or just daunted by the workout itself, fret not, our instructors will give you extra attention in your first classes, to ensure you feel comfortable on the machine and well on your way to your best you.
