Reformer Pilates

Beginners

This class is suitable for all those who are new to Pilates or returning after a break. The basic techniques of Classical Pilates are explained and practiced while using the reformer machines to increase strength, flexibility and balance. We recommend to complete a few of our Beginner Pilates sessions prior to moving on to our Fitness Reformer – Intermediate classes. Always check with your Instructors if you are not sure.

Intermediate

This session is only for those who have been participating in Pilates classes for a while, have passed a certain skill standard and been approved to progress to the Intermediate level. The class is more of a workshop with less breaks and more challenging movements and balances. There are also less instructions on the basic moves and body positions as it is assumed that you have mastered these in the Beginners classes. All participants are to be approved prior to booking this session type.  Those new to Pilates would be better to enrol in our Beginners Pilates classes.

Mixed Levels

This class is a fitness Pilates session using the reformers. It is suitable for all clients of different fitness levels and Pilates knowledge. It is a great way to learn the fundamentals of the Pilates techniques and to build on existing abilities. Our group classes are for a maximum of 8 people.

Lunchtime Express

This is a shorter class (reformer) of 40 minutes designed for those who enjoy a lunchtime workout.  However, if all those participating in the session do not need to rush off the class will be extended to the usual 50 mins duration.
All our classical Pilates principles still apply.  To book into this class, select the the day and time from the schedule listing.

Pregnancy

While we have no issue with our regular clients continuing with our usual Pilates sessions for as long as they feel they can, we also offer a specialised session for soon-to-be and new Mums.  During these sessions we can focus on the movements and exercises which will benefit you most during labour and after your baby is born.  Please see our timetable for availability.

Post Natal – Home Visits

Richmond Pilates offers a Home Visit program for all our new Mums in preparation for returning to the studio.  Each week we come to you, in your home, to help you restore your core and pelvic floor.  This is a post-pregnancy specific program for those who are not ready to return to group classes or those who find that the commitment to leaving the house for a group class is just too overwhelming.

Abs, core and pelvic floor movements tailored to your individual needs, in the comfort of your own home.

Some days, leaving the house with your newborn might seem impossible. We are here to help.
No need to change clothes or clean the house, we understand
how hectic life can be as a new mother.
All you need to supply is a cushion and yoga mat or comfortable rug.

Do you “sneeze wee” or experience “drops when you cough”? Are your muscles still recovering their pre-baby strength?

Our functional Pilates and Pelvic Floor Restoration movements can improve:

  • pelvic floor strength
  • posture
  • alignment
  • core strength
