The core reformer pilates
Invented by Joseph Pilates, the reformer is the most well known piece of equipment found in Pilates studios around the world. This bed-like frame contains a flat platform (known as the carriage) that rolls back and forth on the frame. A person's body weight and resistance of springs on the reformer determine the ease of moving the carriage, which can be easily adjusted to meet each person's skill level. Regular practice on the reformer can do wonders for the body. This classic piece of Pilates equipment increases flexibility, strength, balance, and coordination. The reformer is used during individual and duet sessions at The Core. Working in a smaller setting allows the instructor to focus on the specific needs of the individuals.
The core mat pilates
Pilates mat classes focus on developing core strength, flexibility, balance, and stamina. These classes take place in a group setting using your body weight as the primary source of resistance. Focus is placed on precise movements originating from the core of your body. Working from the deepest layers of muscles that stabilize and support your spine and pelvis, mat pilates results in a strong, flexible spine with ideal posture and alignment. Classes emphasize the foundational principals of Pilates while offering modifications and variations to suit each students individual needs.
The core barre
Our Barre class at The Core is a low-impact workout that tones your entire body. The full body workout concentrates on the areas women struggle with most: hips, thighs, seat, abdominals, and arms. This high-energy class involves intervals of isometric exercises and stretches that are inspired by classical pilates and ballet barre work. High repetition followed by stretching helps to build lean muscles without the bulk.
