What is Reformer Pilates?

Pilates is a method of exercise that consists of low-impact flexibility and muscular strength and endurance movements. Named after its creator, Joseph Pilates, who developed the program in the 1920's, Pilates emphasises correct postural alignment, core strength and muscle balance. 

Reformer Pilates is a type of resistance-based pilates that is performed on a Reformer Pilates bed. A Reformer Pilates bed features a bed-like platform, which rolls back and forth on wheels within a frame. At the end of the bed there are foot bars and at the top of the bed there are straps with handles.

During the class you use your body weight and set a level of resistance of the springs, to build strength and activate your muscles. You may be asked to place your hands or feet within the straps and foot bars depending on the exercise. All parts of the reformer equipment and class can be adjusted for different levels of fitness and skill.
