What is 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.
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.
