Pilates Reformer Classes

Reformer: FOUNDATION AND ESSENTIALS

Beginner workouts on the Pilates Reformer are the perfect time to try something new and experience Pilates and movement in a way you've never experienced before! The Pilates Reformer is the essence of being kind to your body - allowing you to discover proper alignment while also building strength.

You’ll find yourself walking taller, changing the way you sit in a chair and how you squat to pick something up. It is truly life changing. Your instructor will guide you through the details- you’ll learn about the reformer itself, how it works and how to modify the resistance, get in and out of straps, move the footbar, etc. You will also learn Pilates principles, that are vital to success in your workout. These principles are also tools you can implement in any other workout or movement in general.
