What is Reformer Pilates?

The reformer works in what is called ‘closed chain’ exercises, meaning that all of your body is being worked. This gives you feedback on your alignment and position. Many reformer exercises are similar to mat-based Pilates, focusing on the Pilates principles of breath, centre, concentration, control, precision and flow to bring awareness to the mind and body, building strength and mobility.

Reformer Pilates can be highly beneficial if you are looking to progress your clinical rehabilitation from knee, shoulder and hip injuries, building your strength and range of movement.

“I very much enjoyed learning a different form of Pilates, which had a tremendous effect on my fitness and posture. Alan started Reformer Pilates last October and is amazed to find what a difference it has made to his flexibility and core strength. With targeted exercises, Reformer Pilates can focus on parts of your body that need help, thus helping problem areas and generally slowing the ageing process.”

– Alan & Sheila

Reformer Pilates FAQs

How do I get started?

Call us on 01202 473800 or email to book your introduction session.

What should I bring?

Clothing that’s comfortable and allows you to move freely works best for Reformer Pilates – body-hugging Lycra is not essential! You might also like to bring a water bottle and a towel with you to your session.

Do I have to have done Pilates before I do Reformer Pilates?

Absolutely not! Reformer Pilates is suitable for beginners who have done no Pilates before, as well as people with many years of Pilates experience.

What happens if I need to cancel a session?

If you need to change or cancel an appointment, we ask that you contact us at least 24 hours beforehand. Cancellations within 24 hours are charged at 50% of the session fee.

Where can I park?

We are very close to two local car parks. The closest is Christchurch Civic Offices, or you can park at Two Riversmeet West. There is also some street parking available.
