What is Pilates Reformer?
The Pilates reformer is a specially designed piece of equipment that utilizes springs to create varying levels of tension. It is one of the most popular pieces of Pilates equipment. The Pilates reformer was originally invented by Joseph Pilates in the early 1900s as a way to help hospital patients strengthen their muscles.
Although, gentle enough to be recommended by doctors, chiropractors and physical therapists, the Pilates reformer challenges the user to connect with their body and mind to strengthen and tone their body, as well as increase flexibility.
Group Pilates reformer classes
5 persons per class
Group classes on the Pilates reformer in our peaceful studio are limited in size so you have the feeling of a semi private Pilates session with lots of personal attention. Reformer classes may also include small Pilates props for the best possible experience.
This 50 minute class is for individuals who are familiar with the fundamentals of the reformer. Modifications are given when applicable. Because each Pilates reformer class is limited in size you’ll get individualized attention with the energy of a group setting.
Students interested in joining a reformer class should schedule a One-on-One Evaluation with one of our experienced instructors.
