Get back to basics with these introductory classes that are aimed at teaching you the fundamental movements and principles for each movement method. Simple exercises can be challenging too!
Mat Pilates 1, INT
Our Pilates Mat class utilizes Joseph Pilates' original mat exercises with more preparations and modifications. We use props at times including rings, bands, rollers and the stretch bands, to either assist with the move or increase its intensity. Begin with Mat 1 classes and slowly progress through INT!
Mat INT pre-requisite: 10 mat 1 classes
Reformer 1, INT, 2
The Reformer is simply a moving mat (carriage) that is attached to a frame by springs of various resistances. The difference between this mat and your usual mat is that you move yourself and the mat by pulling on the straps with your arms and legs. The spring can provide resistance – but also give you assistance – helping with moves that can be challenging. Start off with Reformer 1 where the exercises are kept similar each session to help you learn the moves, once you become more familiar to the moves it's onto Reformer INT and finally Reformer 2!
Reformer1 pre-requisite: 3 private classes or 5 starter group reformer classes
Reformer INT pre-requisite: 10 reformer 1 classes or 10 private classes
Reformer 2 pre-requisites: 20 reformer 1 classes, 10 reformer 1/2 classes or 20 private classes
