What are Reformer Pilates Exercises?
It can all be a bit confusing, especially if you are starting out! Every class is different, and because at Excelsia Studio’s we utilise reformer machines, the pilates exercises we do are slightly different from those you would do at a regular pilates studio. Generally speaking – pilates exercises done with a reformer machine are more intense and dynamic than the traditional ones performed on a mat. This is due to the machine adding an extra level of resistance through the springs and cables of the machine.
Some people (especially us) believe that reformer pilates is superior to mat-based pilates exercises because it greatly increases the variety of exercises you can do and your range of motion.
Reformer Pilates exercises are also great for individuals who need rehabilitation after an injury or issue, as it allows them to do them in a horizontal position and not load any weight in the legs.
Reformer Pilates exercises may look a bit intimidating – but trust us – anyone can do it and once you do, you won’t want to stop!
