Benefits of Pilates Reformer

Flexibility & Mobility

A Pilates practice keeps moving with smooth transitions between precise and slow, controlled movements. Instead of stretching after a strengthening exercise, most Pilates exercises are a combination of the two, which improves strength, flexibility, and mobility.

Back Pain

Pilates targets the deeper abdominal muscles and the pelvic floor to both contract and release — a true sign of strength. These muscles work like a brace to lift and support the organs and protect and stabilize the back

Injury Prevention

Pilates focuses on developing dynamic strength, which means you are better able to support and stabilize your joints while moving. Research has suggested that Pilates is an effective method for reducing injury risk in sport

Core Strength

Pilates improves core strength and function. Core strength is a key factor in decreasing back and hip pain, decreasing pelvic floor dysfunction, and is the area from which explosive movement derives, hence its nickname “the powerhouse.”

Energy

By focusing on breath, Pilates improves cardiorespiratory capacity. This stimulates oxygen flow and blood circulation.

Pilates achieves all of this and, due to its low impact nature, rarely leaves you feeling fatigued. Instead, it gives you a boost of energy.

Body Awareness

With enhanced proprioception, the body is better able to respond to stimulus, which can prevent injuries and falls. Better body awareness may even help you prevent overeating, as you’ll be more in tune with your body’s hunger signals

Core Strength

Pilates improves balance and gait not only through core strengthening but because of its focus on alignment and whole body exercises.

Cognitive Functioning

After Pilates training several markers were assessed, such as new neuron development, blood flow to the brain, increased neurotransmitters, and longevity of neurons responsible for learning, memory, and executive thinking.

Bone Strength

The current lifestyle of more sitting and less moving is detrimental to our health and our bone density.  Pilates can be effective in increasing quality of life, relieving pain, and increasing bone density.
