FOR CLIENTS NEW TO PILATES REFORMER ONLY! This class is designed for those who have never been on the reformer or are very new to the reformer and is REQUIRED before attending higher level classes.
Up to 10 people workout simultaneously on their own reformer. The class instructor will lead the group through a series of STOTT PILATES® repertoire exercises.
You will learn the basics of Pilates (STOTT Principles, etc.) and everything you need to succeed in all other group equipment classes. Please note that this class is specific to those new to Pilates and/or the reformer. This level of class flows from one exercise to the next to incorporate all major muscles groups as well as flexion, extension, rotation, and lateral flexion of the spine. You must have consent from your instructor before moving on to our next level classes.
The Reformer helps you establish torso stability and postural alignment while working peripheral limbs in a range of motion. The adjustable springs allow for progressive resistance, which helps to lengthen and strengthen the muscles rather than building bulk. It makes for an effective, no-impact stretching and toning workout that is friendly to the joints. The effects of the Reformer go deep, and you'll engage muscles you never knew you had. As you progress, the fitness challenge becomes significantly greater.
