- Mat Pilates- This is the traditional Pilates exercise most people think of. Using a mat and focusing on body weight exercises, Pilates movements bring attention to the core—the powerhouse of the body—and using breath to increase power in movement. While still being an excellent workout, mat Pilates is gentle on the joints and is an extremely safe program. In fact, mat Pilates is an approved exercise for those recovering from injury and even pregnant women.
- Reformer Pilates- Reformer Pilates programs involve specific equipment to increase the level of resistance in each movement. A Pilates reformer is a bed-like piece of equipment with wheels and springs that provide the ability to change levels of resistance. Using straps, bars, and pulleys, you can experience a variety of different exercises and challenge yourself further for a more intense Pilates workout. Even though Reformer Pilates increases the intensity of your workout, it does not differ from Mat Pilates in its level of safety. Even while using the equipment, you will be engaging in a low-impact (and very safe) exercise. Beginners are always welcome! We will teach you how to use the reformer.
