Reformer Pilates is generally more intense and more dynamic than mat based Pilates and can challenge even the most experienced Pilates practitioners. Offering far more variety compared to mat classes, the range of exercises is greatly increased. Reformer exercises usually work muscles through a large range of movements and works the entire body not just the core.
The reformer is extremely versatile and can be used for clients that require post-operation rehabilitation, but also for those that want to take their Pilates training to the next level. The exercises recreate and support actions the body regularly makes, which can rectify any muscle imbalances, amend joint dysfunction and improve technique.
