Mat Pilates for Beginners

Mat Pilates is generally advised as the ideal starting point for beginners as it builds a solid foundation teaching learners the essential specific muscle control. Once this foundation has been acquired, students can then move onto the reformer machines. Although the initial Mat exercises may seem relatively simple and easy, those who apply themselves notice significant changes within a few months, notably improved strength, flexibility, muscle tone and posture.

Reformer Pilates for Beginners

In the case of certain medical conditions or for injury rehab, reformer machine based Pilates may be a more appropriate path. The Reformer equipment enables a greater range of exercise modification and also allows instructors to modify exercises, incorporating exercises that are not possible on the mat. The smaller class sizes are also advantageous, allowing students a higher level of specific and individual attention, while permitting teachers to tailor specific routines and exercises to the needs of individual students.

It is generally advised for beginner students who have not used reformer machines to start with a series of 4-6 private sessions. The goal being to ensure safety, correct technique and to offer tailor made routines to address the individual needs of each student.
