The reformer is classical Pilates equipment is our most popular equipment class. This equipment is a bed like frame with a moveable carriage using light springs for resistance. It is an excellent non-impact exercise perfect for strengthening and toning the muscles without hurting the joints.
The reformer classes are taught in group, semi-private (2-3 people) and private lessons. We recommend wearing comfortable athletic type clothes that allow for easy movement. Socks are optional.
Mat classes are a classical floor class utilizing the standard set of mat equipment such as resistance bands, large and small balls. A Mat Class is within a group setting with no more than 10 people to ensure specific instruction. During the class you will lie, sit and stand on a mat and learn the principles of Pilates, which will be integrated into each exercise. The exercises use your own body weight and each exercise can be modified for your fitness level to develop muscle strength, flexibility, coordination and endurance.
The Mat classes are taught in group, semi-private (2-3 people) and private lessons. We recommend wearing snug fit clothing for easy movement and flexability. Socks are optional.
