Have you tried Reformer Pilates?

Pilates is an incredible form of full-body exercise focusing on functional strength and flexibility. It has been practiced worldwide since its inception in the 1920’s by Joseph Pilates. The new and light-filled clinic at 13th Beach Health Services now allows us to offer both Mat Pilates and Reformer Pilates classes. Both forms of pilates aims to train the body as an integrated whole, improving flexibility, strength, core control and body awareness in a balanced fashion.

A Reformer Pilates machine is a comfortable bed-like frame with a flat platform that smoothly glides back and forth with the assistance and/or resistance created by springs. These springs provide differing levels of resistance making this machine adjustable and suitable for all. The versatility of a Reformer Pilates machine is second-to-none allowing you to complete exercises in a variety of positions from lying down, sitting to standing.

Traditional Pilates exercises remain similar across both Mat and Reformer Pilates, however the Reformer machine itself offers a unique and varied exercise environment in the way that you are pushing with or against resistance, demanding a greater strength component. Regardless of this, the key focus remains as a low impact form of exercise with great attention on the mind, breath and core control.

If you have an interest in both styles of Pilates why not trial both and reap the endless benefits of each? Despite being performed in separate classes, Mat and Reformer Pilates will compliment each other and leave you feeling stronger, balanced and refreshed.

If you haven’t attended a pilates class before this may seem unfamiliar and daunting. Our highly experienced and friendly Pilates Practitioners are trained to help people experience it for the first time. This is a form of exercise that our clinic and practitioners are passionate about and we believe you will fall in love with it just like we have.

Our classes are very welcoming and loads of fun.  Ready to get started? Book your first class now.

Studio Pilates

Our signature class is Reformer Pilates with a little more!

These classes are suitable for all ages and abilities – Our expert instructors will guide you through the class and give you as much assistance as you require. If you are completely new to Pilates we do highly recommend having 2-3 individual 1:1 sessions with one of our practitioners so you master the fundamentals before joining in with a group but this is not compulsory.

Studio Pilates is a low impact, athletic class incorporating elements of cardio, strength training and mobility. Expect the heart rate to rise, muscles to burn, and have lots of fun! We like to mix these classes up a bit to keep challenging the body – no two sessions are the same and some classes might focus a bit more on legs, upper body, core, or mobility.

These 50 minute Studio Reformer Pilates classes with a maximum of 4 people include a stretch cool down at the end.

When is an assessment appropriate?

It is highly recommended you have a Physiotherapy or Osteopathy Assessment prior to joining our classes for the first time, even if you have experience in Pilates in the past.

Practitioner led exercise Pilates can differ to public and gym based group sessions. Clinical pilates focuses on optimal movement, breathing and control while moving through a sequence of exercises. Like any exercise your body will be challenged and it is important to have sufficient control and strength to avoid new strains and injuries.

An individual Physiotherapy or Osteopathy assessment can check your core stability, exercise form and movement control to get the best out of each group class.

We may also develop a complimentary exercise program to better prepare you for classes. If you have a particular injury you are managing, seeing a Physiotherapist prior to joining the group can ensure we find the right exercise for you and allows us to better support you in the class environment. However, you can book in now to your first class without an assessment.

If you are not sure, feel free to contact a member of our friendly team to find out more.
