Physiotherapist-Led Reformer Pilates
Reformer Pilates is a type of Pilates exercise that is performed using a machine called a reformer. The reformer consists of a moving carriage, ropes, springs, and a foot bar that provide resistance and support for the exercises. The reformer allows for a wider range of movements and greater resistance than traditional mat Pilates, making it an excellent option for individuals looking to challenge their strength, flexibility, and balance.
Reformer Pilates exercises focus on improving posture, strengthening the core muscles, and increasing flexibility and mobility. The exercises are typically performed in a slow and controlled manner, emphasising proper form and technique. The reformer also allows for a wider range of movements, including exercises that are not possible on a mat.
Reformer Pilates can be an effective form of exercise for individuals of all fitness levels and ages, and it has been shown to help manage conditions such as back pain, joint pain, and arthritis. It is also a low-impact form of exercise, making it an excellent option for individuals who are recovering from an injury or have chronic pain.
Overall, Reformer Pilates is a versatile and effective form of exercise that can help individuals improve their strength, flexibility, and balance, while managing pain and promoting physical well-being.
