What is Reformer Pilates?

July 13, 2017

Reformer Pilates is a variation of Pilates using a piece of equipment called a Reformer.

The Reformer is a versatile machine that uses a moving carriage, spring resistance and pulleys to allow you to exercise your body in different ways – you can lie, sit, kneel or even stand on it. By adjusting the level of resistance or assistance that the Reformer provides, each exercise can be tailored to the appropriate level of difficulty.

Whether you’re an elite sportsman who wants to improve performance or someone who wants to be able to tend to the garden without back pain – Reformer Pilates can help.

Each session will aim to re-balance your body by targeting and isolating typically weak muscle groups. You will then integrate the use of these muscles into larger movements with more carry-over to everyday activities. This approach helps to change the way you move and improves your daily habits permanently.

These improvements include but are not limited to:

  • Better posture
  • Stronger muscles
  • Reduced risk of injury
  • Better performance
  • Reduction or elimination of everyday aches and pains
