The magic of the Pilates Reformer
Complete mind-body solution
Pilates on the Reformer is an incredible movement system that is endlessly beneficial for your mind and body and one that should run so much deeper than the dream of a flat stomach!
Beyond your toned abs your body will be transformed from the inside out. You will notice the difference in how your body looks and moves, improving your alignment, posture, strength and flexibility.
The calming power of reformer pilates will clear your mind, leaving you de-stressed and relaxed, while taking your body confidence sky high.
A Reformer Pilates class takes your whole mind and body through an incredible flow of movement, using actions such as squatting, lunging, rotation and extension. The aim is to get our bodies moving again, stretching, strengthening, increasing mobility and challenging our neuromuscular patterns to get our bodies back into sync.
How does the Reformer work?
Reformer Pilates works using the resistance of springs. The resistance will challenge your body in every plane of movement. It will tone and strengthen your muscles and it doesn’t stop there - resistance training has long lasting benefits for bone density. Balance exercises are a big part of Reformer Pilates. Improving balance prevents falls and injuries especially as we age. As we advance through life, our muscles & bones follow a path of degeneration where they lose strength and mass. So as you work out on the reformer you are not only strengthening your body for now but looking after it for the future. Put in the ground work now to live better later on.
Balancing in the moment
Reformer Pilates balances us in every sense of the word. For many of us our minds are in overdrive, we are stressed, tired and sometimes feel a little out of control. Pilates is a wonderful form of mindfulness. No stress, no worries, just time to focus on you. This time to unwind and self reflect will benefit you for hours afterwards. You will notice how much happier, relaxed and at ease you feel after a class.
Reformer Pilates allows you to change your body goals. Instead of focusing on the scales we focus on positive body goals. These positive goals empower our minds and bodies, keeping us focused and motivated leading to unbelievable results.
The classes at Pilates Lifestyle are “fun”, dynamic and challenging. Although Reformer Pilates is one of the hardest workouts for your body you won’t notice the time fly by. After the session you will feel like a superstar - sweaty, but a superstar nonetheless!
