Let’s start with a bit about Pilates:

 

What can Pilates do for me?

Our mat Pilates classes are small. Maximum of 10 in each class and our Reformer Pilates classes fit a maximum of 4, so we can focus on your individual needs.  Our Pilates classes teaches you body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement. Pilates improves flexibility, agility and motion. It can even help alleviate muscle and joint pain. 

Pilates dramatically transforms the way your body looks, feels and performs. It can build strength without excess bulk, creating a sleek, toned body and a flat abdomen. No matter what your age or condition, it will work for you. Pilates improves core strength, flexibility, agility and motion. 

Pilates is not just for girls either!

It was developed by a man called Joseph Pilates. Many of the world’s elite dancers and athletes use Pilates to strengthen and tone their muscles. It also assists them to help prevent injuries. Try it and see the benefits for yourself, you only regret the things you don’t try 

What’s the difference between Reformer and Mat Pilates?

 

Pilates machines, called ‘Reformers’ 

You are fully supported in the Reformer machine and springs provide different levels of resistance depending on the strength of the individual and the level of ‘workout’ they need. The reformer can be gentle, using core strength and posture, to a cardio & resistance workout building lean, flexible, toned muscles. It teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement. Reformer Pilates improves flexibility, agility and motion. They are quite easy to use and get the hang of. Remember we all started with not knowing in the beginning. Our Reformer machine is for 1:1 private sessions called Clinical  Pilates as your program is custom designed for you with our Physio. Bonus, you can claim on private health too.

 

Pilates mat work

By picking movements and modifying the exercises, your instructor will be very supportive and assisting your needs. You learn to "organize" your body and incorporate the principles of Pilates. Don’t be fooled by the people who say Pilates isn’t a work out. You will always feel the good sore after a class and in no time at all you and others will notice the benefits on your body! 

 

What should I do first Mat or Reformer Pilates?

We recommend you try Mat Pilates first to ensure you have the fundamentals down. If you are unsure where to start, have a specific injury, want results faster or have never done any Pilates before, you may want to consider a private class with you and your instructor or perhaps a friend or two.
