Pilates is a system of controlled exercises that engage the mind and condition the total body. The blend of strength and flexibility training improves posture, reduces stress and creates long, lean muscles without bulking up. Pilates takes a balanced approach so that no muscle group is overworked and the body moves as an efficient, holistic system in sport and daily activity. Reformer, Yoga, Mindful Meditation. All designed to allow you to explore more ways for you to challenge your health and wellness needs.
There is probably no piece of Pilates equipment more famous than the reformer. And for good reason! The reformer makes a dramatic impression when you first see one, and an even more dramatic change in the body when you use it.
One of the best things about the reformer is its versatility. Exercises can be done lying down, sitting, standing, pulling the straps, pushing the footbar, perched on the footbar, perched on the shoulder blocks, with additional equipment, upside down, sideways and all kinds of variations thereof. In other words, the reformer can train many parts and dynamics of the body in so many different ways with just one relatively sleek piece of equipment.
All kinds of exercises are done on the reformer to promote length, strength, flexibility, and balance. This workshop will familiarize you with the reformer, the principle exercises on the reformer, cues that will lead a class, and important safety rules to get the most of a reformer workout or reformer class.
New to yoga, or just want to brush up on the basics? Check out our course designed to introduce yoga for new students, or for anyone who would like to brush-up on the basics. In the course, we will talk a bit about yoga as a philosophy and practice, teach many of the basic postures (asanas), and focus on breathing techniques and sequences in vinyasa yoga. During the workshop we will focus on proper alignment within postures and how that feels in your own body.
After completing this, you'll feel confident walking into any yoga class.
