Have you met the Pilates reformer? If you teach Pilates mat work and haven’t practiced Pilates regularly on the reformer….you are seriously missing out! You are missing out on having a deeper understanding of the Pilates method in your own body and you are missing out on one of the best Pilates teaching tools EVER!! Don’t get me wrong…I love Pilates mat work. I love how easy it is to do anywhere because all you need is your body…but if you are someone who wants to explore what the Pilates method can do for your body and for the bodies of clients of all shapes, sizes and abilities: you need to study the Pilates method utilizing Joseph Pilates’ Reformer.
Here’s just a few of the things you’ll learn while going through the training program:
- The reformer will helps you (and your clients) find your alignment. The design of the equipment gives feedback that allows you to self correct and figure out how to find your own best alignment.
- You’ll find engagement in your body during exercises that you didn’t know you could or should do. The straps and spring of the reformer give your body support and at the same time teach you how to engage your muscles more efficiently. This will build strength, flexibility and balance in your body in a way that will completely change your Pilates Mat work.
- By studying Pilates in different places( ie different pieces of equipment) you’ll learn new tools that you can use to help yourself and your clients safely and effectively train their body.
