Unlike some forms of exercise, Pilates does not over-develop some parts of the body and neglect others. While Pilates training focuses on core strength, it trains the body as an integrated whole. Pilates workouts promote strength and balanced muscle development as well as flexibility and increased range of motion for the joints.
The reformer offers all the famous benefits from Pilates including overall strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance. These things in turn lead to daily life improvements like better posture, graceful, efficient movement, and for many, relief from pain associated with physical imbalances such as back pain. When we talk about strength building and Pilates the Pilates powerhouse muscles, the muscles of the core, are paramount. Flat abs, strong backs, toned buttock and thighs are all results of this emphasis. Other equipment and Pilates mat exercises do that too, but the reformer creates a unique and varied exercise environment.
Implementation of Joseph Pilates’ six “Pilates Principles” – centering, control, flow, precision, concentration, and breath. Add sequences of isometric exercises, orthopedic stretches, and amazing core pelvic floor movements, and you’ll be sculpting the body proportionally. All body parts will be equally challenged.Beginners thrive in this mixed-level class! All levels are welcome as we strengthen the mind and body together.
