Pilates exercises are performed on a mat with precision and focus to improve core strength and flexibility in addition to improved muscle strength. Props like weights, resistance bands, magic circles and theraballs are used to assist in deepening your connection to the work and provide an additional challenge.
This class is performed on the Reformer which has a spring loaded carriage that slides back and forth on a frame. It challenges the core utilizing a dynamic surface and spring tension to increase the intensity of the exercises. The Reformer provides support to assist in maintaining correct alignment. You will work your full body and connect with some tiny muscles you may not have known you even had.
The Tower is stationary piece of equipment. It utilizes springs to assist, enhance or challenge an exercise by providing resistance to increase strength and muscle control. There is also the benefit of stretching that occurs when working in such a direct way with the springs. You will challenge your body in many different positions such as, lying, sitting, kneeling and standing. This class will keep you guessing and take your work to the next level.
