Pilates Rehabilitation - Denver
Mat Pilates and equipment-based Pilates are a systems of exercises designed to improve core stability, physical strength, flexibility, posture, and enhance mental awareness. Pilates focuses on six main principals: Centering, control, concentration, precision, flow, and breath.At RMOM, we offer private and semi-private sessions and small group Pilates classes, making each and every session unique! With a maximum of 4-6 people in a group, sessions are small & personal allowing the teacher to focus on proper movement mechanics and the safety of each and everybody.

Mat Pilates:

Mat Pilates is a series of exercises performed on the floor using gravity, your own body weight, or the use of resistance bands. Mat, foam roller, balls, Pilates Arc, small props, and weights can be used as well.

Equipment-based Pilates:

This includes specific equipment that works against spring-loaded resistance, including the Reformer, which is a movable carriage that you push and pull along its tracks. Other forms of Pilates equipment include the Barrel, Chair and jumpboard. We currently utilize the Reformer, Chair, jumpboard and Pilates Arc.
