All classes are 1 hour long.

Reformer Pilates

What is Reformer and how is it different from Mat Pilates?

yogahub’s Reformer Pilates classes are a full body workout that combine traditional and contemporary Pilates, with the strengthening and toning aspects of strength training. Our dynamic classes are performed on a spring resistance apparatus called a Reformer Bed. With the combination of adjustable spring resistance and a sliding platform, the Reformer can create resistance or instability (or both) to make exercises easier or harder where a mat cannot. 

Do I need to be fit to attend Reformer Pilates?

Our classes are inclusive, so everyone is welcome. With small group classes (up to a maximum of 14), our trainers can modify exercises to accommodate each individual’s ability, allowing you to work at your own pace.

I’m already fit. What can Reformer Pilates do for me?

Well, you’d be surprised. Fitness fanatics through to professional athletes are turning to Reformer Pilates to complement their sport-specific training. Reformer Pilates can make you more resistant to injury, correct weaknesses and enhance core strength and postural alignment.

Can I still do Reformer Pilates if I have an injury?

It will depend on your injury and your road to recovery. You may need to get a medical certificate from your GP/Physio before you can attend. It’s best to speak to one of our trainers before participating in a class to make sure you’re not putting yourself at risk of further damage.

I’m pregnant, can I still attend Reformer Pilates?

Our workouts, whether part or all of the workouts, may not be suitable for pregnant women. As not all of our instructors are pre- post-natal trained, we ask that you do not attend classes if you are pregnant.

What do I need to know before my first class?

Please arrive 10 minutes early to your first class. That way you’ll have time to familiarise yourself with the studio, meet your trainer and have a quick rundown on the Reformer.

What should I wear to class?

Appropriate clothing is essential, as you are going to work up a sweat. We recommend gym tights, leggings or shorts, and either a T-shirt or singlet top. Although most clients prefer to train barefoot, socks are most welcome.

I’m running late, can I still join the class?

All of our classes include a warm up and a cool down. Please arrive no later than 10 minutes before the class starts. Late-comers will not be allowed into class. We have to have this rule to make sure all of our students get the best experience possible from our studios.
