What are the different levels offered for Pilates Reformer Classes?

1. Foundations – Those new to the Reformer or looking to fine-tune the basics. If you have never been on a reformer or it has been a long time since you have done reformer classes, it is suggested to complete the 3 Small Group orientation package, or the introductory – 3 private sessions before you take part in any other I/A group classes. This class is for everyone. The instructor will teach all levels in the class.
2. Intermediate– For participants who have done our Foundations sessions or are familiar with the reformer apparatus already and are ready for more! Essential breathing and concentration at the Foundations level are now challenged with staying centred while learning the intermediate repertoire.
3. Advanced– Understands the Pilates reformer repertoire, including breath work and is ready for a challenge. One can move quickly from one exercise to another with proper form.

If I have never done Reformer Pilates, which session do I attend?

You would go into any “Foundations” class, which will introduce you to the Reformer, and go through a slower-paced class focusing on learning all core exercises and introducing you to breath. This class is also suitable for someone wanting to fine-tune the basics.
