What is the Pilates equipment? Why choose an equipment based class? How do I book?
The Pilates Reformer
One of the most famous pieces of equipment Joseph Pilates invented is called the Reformer. One of the many advantages is the fact The Reformer is raised above ground level, which gives the instructor an excellent view to observe and correct our client's alignment whilst performing the exercises. The Reformer consists of a series of springs, straps, pulleys and a gliding platform, The Reformer offers a versatile, impact free workout that enables you to perform resistance exercises whilst lying down, sitting, kneeling or standing.
The Cadillac & Tower
This is one of my favourite pieces of Pilates equipment! The Tower is a wonderful place to begin if you are a total novice to Pilates as it provides a huge amount of support using springs and bars. The Tower is a version of The Cadillac that allows you to do approx 75 % of the traditional Cadillac exercises. You'll feel as though your body can float through the movements! Do not be fooled! There are many challenges from the beginner to the advanced student. Within our studio we are pleased to offer The Tower.
The Pilates Chair
Many of Joseph Pilates equipment pieces were based on everyday household items, and if you haven't guessed, The Chair is no exception. It is thought that Joseph Pilates designed The Chair for a friend who did not have enough space in his apartment for a Pilates Reformer.
From injured clients to elite athletes, from expectant Mum's to the older client this versatile piece of equipment gives you amazing results. You can sit, kneel, lie or stand on, in front of, sideways and behind the Chair, the variety of exercises are vast!
The Pilates Ladder Barrel and Spine Corrector
Joseph Pilates designed The Ladder Barrel from an empty beer keg! This exceptional piece of equipment allows the body to work through every range of motion, the unique barrel design and rungs of the ladder provides support enhancing and challenging your body in all planes of movement. As soon as you see it you'll want to drape yourself over it! The Spine Corrector is a smaller version of the ladder barrel without the ladder, it allows beautiful movements through the spine also challenging range of motion and strength. The Spine Corrector can also be used on the other pieces of equipment such as The Reformer and The Tower.
