Reformer Pilates is for everyone, don’t be afraid of the machine. Our first session we will do an initial postural assessment and we will discuss any injuries you have. We will work together to choose the right spring settings to suit your body and each week we can increase the spring or increase the reps so you can notice your improvement.
Reformer Pilates is more than just stretching. The springs and sliding carriage of the Reformer will guide you with exercises ranges of movement you don’t use (but should) in your normal day. This can help relieve the stiffness built up through your daily routine and ease back pain. After each exercise we will focus on stretching out the body and you will leave with an open body.
Reformer Pilates trains the body as an integrated whole, focusing on core, lower body, and upper body strength as well as flexibility and posture. Reformer Pilates promote strength, balanced muscle development, flexibility, and increased range of motion for the joints.
The Reformer is suitable for all. Whether you are looking to improve athletic performance, a new method of injury prevention and rehabilitation or simply fancy trying something different to improve flexibility and strength, by isolating specific muscles, then why not give it try. The Pilates reformer is highly beneficial for people looking to enhance postural alignment.
This is a whole-body workout, where full range of motion is tested. The pushing and pulling techniques against the resistance of different strength springs, the carriage and your natural body weight, will test you and challenge you. Reformer Pilates is a great way to enhance and progress your Pilates practice.
We would recommend that you attend mat-based Pilates prior to attending a reformer session so that you are aware of the basic Pilates principles, but this is not compulsory.
Please wear grip socks when on the reformer. These can be purchased for £10 a pair at the Ironstone Reception.
Water – Hydration before, during and after class is key.
We have onsite parking.
High Intensity But Low Impact
Improves Flexibility – Flexibility levels will not improve as much in Pilates in comparison to regular Yoga practice. However after regular practice you will notice an increase in range of motion at the joints.
Strengthens Your Body – Although the sessions focus on the core strength it is in fact a whole-body workout. It is also very popular for those needed to rehab. Building strong core foundations will result is durability and protection across the whole body.
Improves Posture – Good posture and alignment is a result of a strong core. Regular practice can improve posture. For this exact reason it is said to help people who suffer with back pain.
Whole Body Workout – Our main goal for every Pilates session is to tone, strengthen and lengthen our bodies. We do this through a combination of mobility and stability exercises. The addition of the pushing and pulling techniques against the resistance of different strength springs adds a new element to our workout.
