  • Group Equipment Classes

Reformers are Pilates machines that use springs and pulleys to provide variable resistance to assist and challenge the body. The variable resistance with Reformer Pilates is what makes it so unique and is why it’s suitable for every level of ability.

Reformer Pilates has countless benefits including:

  • Long, lean overall body muscle tone
  • Improved flexibility and postural correction
  • Core strength, balance, and body awareness
  • Accelerated results.

Why would you choose group Equipment Classes over group Matwork? It really is different strokes for different folks! If you are looking for more personalized attention, Group Equipment provides more individualized workouts that include total body conditioning.  If you require a little more assistance or support then Reformer will also be preferable for you.

To manage your own class bookings (essential to secure your Reformer), we have our own online booking system which is flexible and easy to use.
