Reformer Pilates Group Sessions 5:1

Reformer Pilates is a combination of traditional Pilates exercises with the strengthening and toning aspects of circuit training. Our classes have a maximum of 5 participants and are performed on a spring resistance apparatus called a Reformer Bed.

Our Reformer group sessions are designed to provide an effective General Workout. Our instructors will lead the group through a program of exercises, with modifications for differing abilities. The program includes Abdominal exercises, Legs and Arms in straps, Chest exercises, Rowing, and Seated exercises. Reformer Pilates aims to target the whole body through continuous, precise, controlled movements. These functional exercises engage the core while delivering cardiovascular conditioning.  Allow 60 minutes for each class.

Private One-on-One Reformer Pilates Sessions

Private sessions are particularly valuable when you are just beginning Pilates or if you are looking for an individual program. In particular, those looking to rehabilitate or recover from an injury and Pregnant and Post Natal women benefit from these one-on-one sessions.

In a 1:1 Pilates session, your instructor will guide you through a series of exercises selected to meet your wellness and training goals. Allow 30 minutes for your session.

Before beginning at our Studio we recommend booking a One on One Private Session, to properly assess you and understand your needs and devote the time necessary to teach the fundamental Pilates principles in depth.

Commonly Asked Questions:

I have never done Pilates before.  Should I do a group class or a private session first?

We recommend the OPEN class for beginners but this all depends on the individual and their condition. If you have chronic back pain, are coming back from an injury or are pregnant, a one-on-one session would be best to assess your situation.
We do however reserve the right for instructors to restrict clients to a particular class type for safety reasons if necessary.

What is Reformer Pilates and how is it different from mat-based Pilates?

Reformer Pilates is a combination of traditional Pilates with the strengthening and toning aspects of circuit training. Our classes are performed on a spring resistance apparatus called a Reformer Bed rather then on the floor.
Mat Pilates is a full body workout preformed on the floor on a mat.

If this is your first class please arrive 15 minutes earlier so you’ll have time to familiarise yourself with the studio, fill out a registration form and meet your instructor. We recommend you come dressed with appropriate clothing.

Appropriate clothing is essential as it is a workout. We recommend gym tights, leggings or shorts and either a t-shirt or singlet top. For hygiene purposes, we recommend clients train in socks rather than bare feet. We recommend you come dressed and prepared for your class.

No, everyone comes with different fitness levels and abilities. With small group classes our instructor can modify exercises to accommodate each individual’s ability, while at the same time allowing the client to work at their own pace.

With a maximum of 5 clients per reformer class, our small group classes allows our trainers to focus on each individual to achieve maximum benefit.

This is up to the individual. How often you train will depend on your fitness level, how your body adapts to the training and how well your body can recover. It also depends on your fitness goals and what you do outside. We recommend starting with one to two classes weekly.
