What is Pilates?

Pilates is a system of exercise that was developed over 80 years ago. It consists of a series of slow, controlled, stretching and strengthening exercises and results in a stronger healthier body. Pilates is gentle on your body and is particularly effective in improving flexibility, balance and posture.

Pilates is an excellent method of rehabilitating back injuries and managing back pain. When practiced regularly, it can build up core strength and lengthen tight back muscles.

Benefits of Pilates include:

  • Increased core strength and core stability
  • Improved posture
  • Greater flexibility and balance
  • More efficient breathing
  • Reduced stress and fatigue
  • Firmer, flatter stomach

Reformer

What is Reformer Pilates?

The pilates reformer is an exercise machine used to incorporate the pilates exercise technique for a challenging and intense workout.
Springs, leverage and bodyweight are used as resistance while performing movements targeting specific muscle groups.
Workouts consist of controlled, flowing movements working your muscles through a full range of motion. The reformer adds increased resistance to the movement.
By working to overcome this resistance training results in increased fitness levels, flexibility and muscle strength.
