What’s the difference between Traditional Pilates and Reformer Pilates?
While traditional Pilates is soothing and a great flow to slide into your routine, Reformers Pilates with an experienced Exercise Physiologist is guaranteed to really improve not just the tone of your body but the overall feeling and movement of it.
Traditional Pilates focuses on taking your body through yoga-like movements performed on the floor with a mat, the main focus being the use of your core muscles during the flow. Many people practice this form of Pilates either in their homes or at a Pilates studio, with studios offering hot Pilates which is Pilates performed in an environment that is heated, normally around 30 degrees Celsius, to really work up a sweat. This form of Pilates, heated or unheated, is perfect if you’re looking to increase general flexibility, tone, mental strength and posture through movements performed with nothing but your body weight.
