What is Reformer Pilates?
A Reformer is a specific Pilates machine. Pilates is a form of exercise that utilises all the muscles within the body. You perform a routine of exercises in class to gain a full body conditioning workout.
What should I wear?
Wear something comfortable and that you can move reasonably freely in. Leggings or trackpants and a T-shirt are a common choice.
When do I need to arrive?
Arrive a few minutes prior to class commencement. If you haven’t been to the studio before give yourself a little more time so you can find us.
Is there parking?
There are a car parks directly outside the studio and these are 180 pay and display.
I’m pregnant, can I still come to class?
You are welcome to attend all classes up to 8 weeks.
From 8 to 16 weeks you can still attend Beginners and Antenatal classes.
Once you reach 16 weeks you can continue attending Antenatal classes.
Other options for continued Reformer Pilates training:
1:1 Instructed sessions
2:1 Instructed sessions
Private Group class with 3 or more
What do I need to bring?
Bring along a water bottle which you can fill up in the studio.
Will I sweat?
Our Reformer Pilates classes encourage a ‘glow’ however if you know you have a tendency to sweat bring a sweat towel!
We also have showers on site and complimentary towels for use with these.
Can I bring my child?
Unfortunately children are not able to wait for you in the studio (as well behaved as they may be!).
Dependant on age, there are many lovely cafes in the CWD hub where they can sit and have a hot chocolate, kombucha or a bite to eat.
Can I leave early?
It it greatly preferred that you stay for the duration of your class. Please if something unforeseen comes up and you absolutely must leave class early that you inform your teacher upon arrival so that they can let you know when the time comes for you to depart.
How many beginners classes do I need to attend?
Everyone varies, you may require 3 or you may stay in Beginners due to injury, a condition or take a bit longer to build strength and your mind to body connection. If you feel you may be ready for Intermediate give one a go and remember you can take breaks if you need!
(And you can alway ask your teacher to see if they think you’re ready)
