What is the Reformer Pilates?
The sliding bed-like machine uses springs and straps to create varying resistance. It allows you to target small muscle groups and strengthen and stretch your muscles safely. The Reformer allows you to explore many more exercises than mat Pilates. There are so many movements and variations that can be used to challenge your whole body in a different, effective way. Reformer sessions are a great way to work the whole body while increasing mobility, strength, flexibility, and core stabilization while never getting bored.
Which Pilates Reformer will I use?
The Reformer used is the Allegro 2 Reformer by Balanced Body
What is Reformer Pilates good for?
Reformer Pilates develops a strong core while supporting and strengthening the torso, hips, shoulders and pelvic muscles. Reformer Pilates gives a full-body (can also be sectioned off to upper and lower body) workout, improving power, strength, flexibility, mobility, cardio and efficiency.

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.
