BEGINNERS REFORMER CLASS
This class is ideal for complete beginners and or for those who have very little experience of Reformer Pilates. We encourage all first timers to join one of our beginner classes. The classes are slower letting your body get to grips with the basic principles and build up strength from the core.
MIXED ABILITY REFORMER CLASS
Ideal for all levels! This class gives a variety of options for you to work at. If you’re thinking of moving up to the next level but don’t fancy jumping into an intermediate class just yet, then don’t worry, this class will help ease you in. For those of you looking for more of a challenge, don’t worry advanced options are always given!
INTERMEDIATE REFORMER CLASS
Our Intermediate Reformer Classes are dynamic and require a certain degree of body awareness, strength and flexibility. The pace of the class is faster than a “classical “Reformer Pilates class. The choreography in the intermediate reformer classes is more complicated and challenging to achieve maximum results. We guarantee that your body will change shape!
“In ten sessions you will feel the difference, in twenty you will see the difference and in thirty you will have a whole new body.” Joseph Pilates.

Frequently Asked Questions
Many people tend to start with mat work in order to learn the principles of Pilates, but at Pilates Klinik you can sign up to our Beginner’s Reformer Class which are a bit slower than the mixed and intermediate sessions, allowing you to get to grips with the basic principles of Reformer Pilates and build your strength up from the core.
At Pilates Klinik, we specialise in Reformer Pilates, which integrates the principles of Pilates movement patterns with the resistance of the Reformer equipment to create a total body workout. Reformer Pilates is often considered more dynamic and intense than mat work because most of the exercises require a greater range of motion and involve resistance that is applied from springs and bands.
We welcome all abilities to our group classes at Pilates Klinik. However, if you have never in your life tried Pilates we recommend you take a 1-on-1 session or spend some time familiarising yourself with the basics so as to get the maximum benefit from the class.
As with most types of exercise, if you’re just getting started with movements that are entirely new to you and your body you are more likely to feel a little muscle soreness in the days following your workout. That said, Pilates is a safe and gentle workout for the body and with a little practise it is rare to experience soreness after classes.
Concentration – It’s important to be mentally present as you do Pilates exercises, remaining aware of your body’s movements, sensations and alignment.
Control – Moving the body in a controlled manner so as to carry out the exercises safely and effectively.
Centering – Using body sides of the body equally and evenly
Fluidity – Smoothly transitioning from one movement to the next to create a flow.
Precision – Each movement should be precise, the accurate positioning of each part of your body it vital in order to achieve all the benefits of pilates.
Breathe – Paying attention to your breathing is important as this fuels your concentration and precision. You should aim for deep, steady breaths.
Pilates is non-impact style of exercise which is safe enough to do everyday. If you’re totally new to Pilates, daily practise can really help you get started. Once you’re comfortable with Pilates, most people tend to take a class every other day. Joseph Pilates advice was to do Pilates three times a week.
Whilst we can’t say for certain that pilates will benefit every single person who tries it, its non-impact style is generally acknowledged as being one of the most beneficial forms of exercise. Pilates is well documented in helping people lose weight, ease back pain, tone muscles, recover from injury and improve their mental health.
Whilst yoga and pilates share some of the same ideas around the connection between mind and body, the main difference is the equipment used in pilates. Pilates equipment offers gentle resistance or assistance depending on how it is used, depending on your aims this can be more useful for developing or strengthening certain muscles.
The Pilates method of non-impact exercise is safer than other forms of exercise as it puts the body under less stress. Pilates exercises the body as a whole evenly and symmetrically, which is the best way to develop your core strength and rehabilitate from previous injuries.
Pilates is a full-body exercise system that uses a series of machines and movements. It works the entire body, while focussing primarily on what Joseph Pilates called the “powerhouse,” or the group of muscles which start at the bottom of your ribs and end below the pelvis, incorporating the muscles around your front and back (which wrap around a bit like a corset), as well as the buttocks. With Pilates, no matter what exercise you are doing, you’re always focusing on this area of the body.

Class sizes are limited to six. We like to keep our group sizes small as we feel this allows us to offer better guidance to individual class members. Our clients benefit from the kind of close guidance normally associated with 1-to-1 classes with the added value of group class prices. If you would prefer 1-to-1 guidance, we also offer private classes.
We recommend all new first-timers attend a beginner session first to familiarise yourself with the basics of the reformer machine and pilates in general before joining a class to make sure you get the most from the lesson.
