Reformer Pilates

Pilates is a unique system of mind-body exercise evolved from the principles of Joseph Pilates. Developed from rehabilitation techniques, Reformer Pilates uses equipment to improve strength in a balanced way, so that tight, tense areas are stretched and weak ones strengthened, allowing you to feel more relaxed and less stressed.

This means that you will be able to have an effective workout regardless of age, fitness level or injuries!

Transform your body

Art Form Pilates can help transform the way your body looks, feels and performs. With the guidance of our instructors, pilates can help:

  • Improve overall muscular strength

  • Improve flexibility, posture and coordination

  • Improve muscle strength in core, abdominal and back

  • Targets  core muscles and  other stabilizing muscles often neglected by other forms of exercise.

  • Stabilisation of the body and proper postural alignment prior to any movement reduces the chance of injury.

  • Pilates conditions the whole body: no muscle group is over trained or under trained.

Why Reformer Pilates?


Pilates equipment combines core training with strength training for your legs, hips, arms, shoulders and inner thighs.

The most defining feature of Pilates equipment is its use of springs for resistance:

  • Springs provide both assistance and resistance

  • Springs encourage eccentric muscle activity – a great way to both lengthen and strengthen muscles in fitness and rehabilitation.

  • Springs provide an active, flowing stretch – Muscles have mechanisms that can protect us from overstretching them, but that can sometimes limit our ability to gain flexibility. On the Reformer, the spring tricks this system of inhibition and allows muscles to gently stretch more effectively.
