From September 2009 we will commence Reformer classes. The Reformer is one of the most renowned of all Pilates
equipment. With its sophisticated system of springs, straps and pulleys, more than 200 exercises can be performed
on this surprisingly versatile apparatus.
The Reformer glides forwards and backwards on rollers and uses springs for resistance, along with other attachments,
for a wide variety of exercises and positions (ie. lying down, seated, and standing). It facilitates hundreds of
exercise variation, is no-impact (and therefore easy on the joints), allows for modifications for those with injuries
or conditions, allows for three-dimensional movement and conditioning, and is suitable for a wide variety of clients
(from rehab to professional athletes). The Reformer also facilitates balanced strength & flexibility, provides
accentric and concentric muscle contraction, improves postural alignment and facilitates core conditioning.
