WHAT IS REFORMER PILATES?

The Pilates Reformer is a remarkable apparatus meticulously crafted to bring length and space to your body.

Diverging from traditional workouts, the Reform employs spring tension, creating internal pressure that promotes the elongation of your spine and muscles. By engaging every muscle, the Pilates Reformer not only sculpts a toned core but also plays a crucial role in achieving a leaner and more defined physique. 

THE BENEFITS OF PILATES?

  • Improves strength – particularly around the core, back, glutes and thighs
  • Decreases back pain as it focuses on stabilizing the spinal muscles
  • Elongates muscles and spine for improved flexibility
  • Sculpts and strengthens core muscles
  • Improves posture 
  • Improves sex life by improving pelvic floor strength
  • Improves sports performance by strengthening muscles, mobilizing what’s rigid and lengthening tight areas.
  • Great for preparing for childbirth and recovery afterwards.

Frequently Asked Questions

What to wear?

The most important thing to remember when choosing clothing for Pilates class is comfort and flexibility. The best clothes to wear to Pilates classes are ones that are form-fitting. Loose, baggy clothing will not only make it difficult to move, but also prevent the instructor from observing your form. The key to Pilates is your form, and your instructor will need to assess your body alignment and symmetry to see if there are any areas that need improvement. You also need to wear stretchy materials to help you exercise without restraint.

How many pilates classes to see results?

Joseph Pilates (the founder of Pilates method) has a famous quote: “In 10 sessions you will feel the difference, in 20 you will see the difference, and in 30 you’ll have a whole new body.” In general, best to aim for 2 sessions per week to experience noticeable improvement.
