Pilates Reformer Private Sessions

For those interested in fine tuning athletic skills or becoming reacquainted with their bodies, Pilates Reformer Training is ideal. Pilates Reformer training promotes strength, flexibility, coordination, mental concentration, and fluidity of movement. The adaptability of the technique to meet an individual's needs makes it a particularly beneficial program for the person rehabilitating from an injury, the one pursuing overall fitness goals or for those preparing for athletic competitions. Most exercises are performed in a non-weight bearing position, allowing for little or no impact to the joints.


What is Pilates? (Pronounced: pee-la-tees)

Joseph Pilates developed the Pilates technique of body conditioning over 80 years ago. It has long been a method employed by dancers and athletes to prevent muscular imbalances and to maintain proper skeletal alignment.


What is the Pilates Reformer?

The principle apparatus used in Pilates technique is known as the "Reformer." The Reformer is a carefully crafted piece of equipment consisting of a horizontal platform with a movable carriage that is controlled by adjustable springs. The springs allow for variable resistance during the exercises according to an individual's capabilities and needs.
