What is Pilates and Pilates reformers?
Pilates is a physical fitness system that was developed to improve health by strengthening, stretching, and stabilising key muscles including pelvic floor muscles. The reformer offers all the usual benefits of Pilates, including overall strength, flexibility, coordination and balance. These things lead to better posture, graceful, efficient movement, and for many, relief from back pain.
