Joseph Pilates meant for his system of exercises to be performed on the machines (Reformers being one of them) using the resistance to make your body learn and respond faster. The Matwork was meant as your homework and is what you strive to perfect with flow and ease with a little help from the machine work to build your strength.
Which is why at The Pilates Pod, we celebrate all aspects of Pilates. From Matwork, to Reformer classes, Equipment class, fusion classes like Barre Style Pilates and of course our specialist classes such as Pregnancy, Post Natal and Teens Pilates.
Now's the time to add a reformer class to your routine. Just book into a Twin Refomer class and the system will use two of your normal group credits. Easy!
4 week course only £50 inc VAT. Max 8 per class.
Pilates is a whole body conditioning exercise. Low impact so suitable for everyone, but high on results! It focuses on stretching and strengthening the whole body to improve balance, tone, flexibility and posture using your inner core stabilising muscles to control each movement.
Come and try our 4 week Beginners Course to help you find your core muscles, learn what to do with them, and give some of the basic exercises a go. You'll feel great for doing it, and your back and joints will love you forever!
