Reformer beds were invented by Joseph Pilates in the 1930’s and have been used around the world. They are composed of a flat bed that has a carriage that rolls back and forth with ropes and pulleys. Springs can be adjusted to suit the exercise, the strength of the participant and the overall objectives of the class. The reformer helps with strength and stamina.

How a Reformer Is Used

A wide variety of exercises are performed on the reformer to promote length, strength, flexibility, and balance. Most reformer exercises have to do with pushing or pulling the carriage or holding the carriage steady during an exercise as it is pulled on by the springs.

One of the best aspects about the reformer is its versatility. Exercises can be done lying down, sitting, standing, pulling the straps, pushing the footbar, perched on the footbar, perched on the shoulder blocks, with additional equipment, upside down, sideways, and all kinds of variations.

Pilates Exercises

Our instructor, Marjorie, is guiding her client through theraband resisted shoulder flexion/extension in the scapular plane of movement. The scapular plane of movement is the most functional plane of movement for your arms to move through because of the physiological motion that occurs in our shoulder blades (scapulas).”

Reima Choute
Pilates Instructor

As a lifelong health and fitness enthusiast, I've always been drawn to activities that promote wellness. Discovering Pilates was a game-changer for me because of its myriad benefits for deep core strength, spinal health, and flexibility. The diversity of movements in Pilates allows for a strong, resilient body. After immersing myself in various Pilates classes, I became passionate about sharing its transformative effects with others. I started with Mat Pilates, appreciating its focus on bodyweight movements to understand the body better, and now I'm expanding into comprehensive training. I'm thrilled to guide more individuals on their wellness journeys through the practice of Pilates, helping them achieve better health, mind-body connection, and rehabilitation from injuries.
