Classes Are Small – Reformer classes are small so the teacher will always give you individual attention to assist you in using the equipment. It is a gentle, safe and effective way to exercise, and the beauty of doing it is you can adjust the level of intensity to suit your desired workout, using the springs.
Reshape Your Body – Reformer Pilates is a great way to reshape your body. Sessions are designed to give you an envious long, lean, graceful tone. “In 10 sessions, you feel better, 20 sessions you look better, 30 sessions you have a completely new body.”– a quote from the founder of the practice, Joseph Pilates.
Rehabilitate – The reformer is a great way to exercise after an injury. The equipment allows precise movements performed in a safe way to help you regain your strength and posture. If you have back injuries or muscular imbalance this is a great way to regain your confidence and strength.
Pregnancy and Post Natal Friendly – Pilates is excellent for expecting women, as it incorporates core, pelvic floor and posture exercises. Doing Pilates while you’re pregnant will significantly help you recover after giving birth – not only will you have an easier time physically caring for your new baby, you can also bounce back much quicker to the shape you were before.
Variety – One important difference between mat Pilates and reformer Pilates is that there are so many more movements and exercises on the reformer – without even getting too into the equipment, there are over 250 movements! The variety of the classes will ensure that your class will always be different, hitting your body and your mind from many different angles.
Endorphins – After a class of reformer pilates, you will immediately feel better – exercise releases endorphins, also known as the happy hormone. But you won’t only feel it after class – regular exercise will help you gain more energy everyday, which will continue on even when you’re not working out.
