What is a Pilates Reformer Class?

Pilates reformer classes are a type of exercise that utilizes a piece of specialized equipment called a reformer. This machine consists of a sliding carriage, adjustable springs for resistance, and a variety of handles and straps. The reformer allows for a wide range of movement and can accommodate people of all fitness levels.


Pilates reformer classes are typically conducted in a small group setting, with each participant using their own reformer. Our instructor will guide the class through a series of exercises that use the reformer to challenge the muscles and improve flexibility, strength, and balance. These exercises may involve pushing, pulling, or otherwise moving the carriage, as well as using the handles and straps to perform various stretches and strengthening movements.


One of the benefits of Pilates reformer classes is that they offer a low-impact workout that is easy on the joints. The reformer provides support and resistance, allowing you to perform exercises that would be more difficult or impossible on a mat or other surface. This makes Pilates reformer classes a great option for people who may have injuries or other physical limitations.

Another benefit of Pilates reformer classes is that they can help improve posture and alignment. The exercises encourage proper body positioning and control, which can help reduce strain on the muscles and joints. This can lead to a feeling of increased energy and reduced discomfort in daily life.


Pilates reformer classes are suitable for people of all fitness levels, as the intensity of the workout can be adjusted by adjusting the resistance on the reformer. If you are new to Pilates or a reformer beginner there's nothing to worry about. We will instruct you how to use the equipment correctly, and safely, and ensure the machine's resistance is right for you.


Overall, Pilates reformer classes are a fun and effective way to improve your overall physical fitness and well-being. They offer a low-impact workout that is easy on the joints, while also helping to improve posture, alignment, and muscle strength.
