Reformer Express

A 30 minute group class using our beautiful Pioneer Pilates Reformer; fully supervised and facilitated by our BASI and STOTT trained instructors.

Maximum of 6 clients per class ensures an intensely focused session with modifications to cater from beginner to advanced participants

 

Jumpboard Reformer

The jumpboard is a padded plate that replaces the foot bar on the reformer and provides an excellent and non-weight bearing method to increase the heart rate during a reformer class.

Jumpboard Reformer is safe and much easier on the joints than running. There is no jarring of the knee joints, and clients will enjoy a full body workout, with strong abdominal control required to stabilise the body.

Jumpboard Reformer is a class for members experienced in traditional reformer pilates.

 

Mat Pilates

Traditional pilates mat class, focusing on breathing, alignment and stability of the ribs and pelvis. Pilates is essentially about re-educating your body, undoing the damage that years of stress and immobility inflict. By repeatedly holding certain corrective positions, our musculature starts to retain a memory of how they feel, and in time will actually adopt them automatically – without us having to think about them.

 

 

Hiit Mat Class

Love the fast results of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) but really into the muscle-toning of Pilates?

This Pilates inspired Hiit Mat class is the perfect combination.  Low impact but high intensity movements performed in short bursts, paired with the controlled toning exercises of Pilates.

 

Stretch & Flow Mat 

A 50 minute class focusing on flow-based movements that stretch and lengthen your muscles. Good for anyone who is not a yogi but would like to improve their flexibility.
