What is Reformer Pilates?
Joseph Pilates began designing exercises with the use of springs on hospital beds to rehabilitate injured service personnel in the second world war. He then went on to develop ‘Pilates’ further with dancers in America. It is now a practice that is used world wide.
The Reformer is a dynamic piece of equipment designed to challenge your Pilates practice and is much more closely linked to the origins of Pilates. It combines many of the well know matwork exercises and encorporates the use of resistance springs and pullies to enhance your practice.
