Q. What is Reformer Pilates and how is it different from mat-based Pilates?
The reformer offers all the benefits of Pilates including overall strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance. These benefits, in turn, lead to daily life improvements including better posture, graceful and efficient movement, and for many; relief from pain associated with physical imbalances.
Pilates moves too challenging, or go beyond what you can do on the mat if you crave a greater push. This allows you to work to your level and progress appropriately.
Q. Is Reformer Pilates for me?
Reformer Pilates classes are intended for all fitness levels. Reformer Pilates can make you more resistant to injury, correct weaknesses and enhance core strength and postural alignment, with adjustable intensity. As we only run small group classes (maximum of 12) our trainers modify exercises that allow everyone to participate, regardless of physical ability.Yes, you must be over the age of 16 years old to attend a Reformer Pilates class at Eltham Leisure Centre. Due to the dynamic movement of classes they are not suitable for participants under 16 years of age.During pregnancy, if you are new to Reformer Pilates, we ask that you not start our classes. For current clients, you can attend group classes but only until you’re 15 weeks along. After this, due to our dynamic style of training, you can no longer attend group classes.
