Pilates is an innovative and safe system of mind-body exercises using a mat and a variety of equipment.
It is a safe and sensible exercise system that teaches body awareness, good posture and easy, graceful movement. By developing your core – deep abdominal muscles along with muscles closest to the spine, you will be stronger, which will assist injury prevention and allow you to move more comfortably.
Reformer Pilates uses the Pilates reformer machine which looks like a bed with springs, a sliding carriage, ropes and pulleys. It is considered to be more intense and more dynamic than mat based Pilates as it adds resistance to the exercises via the use of the springs which form part of the machine.
So whether you are a pregnant woman, a new mum or an average person, Pilates can help you. Modifications can be made to allow progression from beginner to advanced as your body conditioning increases.
