Studio launches new reformer Pilates tuition class
STUDIO One in Nettlebed, has opened a new private Reformer Studio taught by Carine Moffett, and it is now up and running to take bookings.
The Pilates Reformer is an elegant machine which provides finely tuned exercise resistance allowing you to work very precisely to develop good movement patterns, increase your core strength and improve flexibility.
The springs in the Reformer provide the resistance from the machine, and the rest of the resistance is provided by your own body weight. Different tensions of springs can be used to increase or decrease the resistance.
Many of the Pilates Reformer exercises are done lying down on the carriage with the head on the adjustable headrest and the feet on the adjustable foot bar.
The carriage is moved by pushing against the foot bar, or pulling the straps or ropes at the other end of the reformer.
