  • Reformer Pilates
  • This is a workout that is built on the principles of Joseph Pilates. His method is the art of controlled movements, which should look and feel like a workout when properly structured. If practiced with consistency, Pilates improves flexibility, builds strength, develops control and endurance in the whole human body. It puts emphasis on alignment, breathing, form, technique, developing a powerfully strong core, and improving coordination and balance. Pilates' system allows for different exercises to be modified in range of difficulty from beginner to advanced. Intensity can be increased over time as the body conditions and adapts to the exercises. Some of the movements are technical, but your instructor will help you through them, and your skill will develop.
