Getting Started With Pilates
We can't wait to see you in our studio.
Choose from any group class, Level 1 beginners or 2 Flow Intermediate, Jump Reformer, HIIP Reformer, Stretch & Strength, Function and Form, Yoga + Meditation at any studio location.
For those who are brand NEW, we recommend you begin with a Level 1 Flow, Stretch + Strength, or Function + Form class.
If you have done Pilates Reformer elsewhere, feel free to jump into any group class.
Alternatively, if you are a beginner, have existing injuries, restricted mobility, or are pre/post natal, or perhaps you have specific training goals, we recommend you try our private sessions.
We will introduce you to the Pilates basics and discuss your specific goals so that we can tailor a perfect Pilates program just for you.
REFORMER FLOW 1
Our REFORMER FLOW Level 1 class, ideal for beginners and those seeking a gentler pace combines spring resistance reformers and props to balance strength, release, stretching, and core activation. Regular practice enhances mobility, strength, and flexibility, making it perfect for Pilates newcomers, pre and postnatal individuals, and those with reduced mobility. We offer options for a more challenging experience if desired. You only need to do a couple of Level 1 classes and than you can book in for reformer Level 2.
STRETCH & STRENGTHEN
Our Stretch and Strengthen Reformer class is suitable for beginners and those seeking a gentler pace, combine spring resistance reformers and props for a balanced session of gentle strengthening, release work, stretching, and core activation exercises. Ideal for individuals recovering from injury, those with reduced mobility, pre and postnatal clients, beginners or our regular members looking to unwind. This brings improved mobility and a stronger core.
FUNCTION & FORM
This is the perfect class for beginners, over 50's or regular members who want a slower-paced class to perfect their form and pilates technique. We explain the WHY of the exercises, which muscles are incorporated and how strengthening these muscles will help improve your everyday activities.
Suitable for those recovering from injury and pre/postnatal. Increase coordination, balance and flexibility. Weight-bearing exercises work the core muscles as well as multiple joint exercises which strengthen soft tissues.
The breath in Pilates is in through the nose and out through the mouth. Every movement has a breathing pattern.
Shoulders are always drawn down and back, creating a V-down shape towards the lower back.
This refers to your pelvic floor and deep abdominal muscles.
There are two spinal positions in Pilates, a NEUTRAL spine and IMPRINTED spine. A NEUTRAL spine refers to the natural curve of your lumbar spine. An IMPRINTED spine refers to using your abdominals to draw the lower back down, so there is very little gap.
