Studio Pilates involves the use of a variety of larger equipment such as the Pilates Reformer, CoreAlign, Cadillac, Wunda Chair and the Ladder Barrel. The different apparatus have all been developed with a modern understanding of human biomechanics.
The equipment has a range of springs, bands, straps, carriages, pulley systems and bars to be used for strengthening and improving flexibility. They will challenge your stability, balance and range of motion. The springs and bands are used to increase the resistance to help with strength, although some Pilates exercises are harder with less tension.
Studio Circuits is a higher intensity form of Studio training, offering more of a cardiovascular element to the studio workout and a more intense full body workout. Studio Circuits classes involve a wide variety of exercises using a range of Pilates equipment in the studio, maximising the effectiveness of your workout.
The studio is accessible to everyone. The remarkable nature of the equipment both challenges and supports the body.
Although the equipment offers a full body workout, it also allows you to do more targeted work on specific muscle groups. Studio Pilates is low impact and does not put additional stress on your joints. It can be particularly helpful with injury rehabilitation or for people diagnosed with a variety of medical conditions.
Circuit Pilates is a fun, high energy workout.
