What is Group Reformer Pilates?

 

Nubodi Dynamic reformer classes are taught by certified STOTT pilates Instructors.


STOTT PILATES is a contemporary, anatomically-based approach to the mind-body exercise developed by Joseph Pilates.

STOTT exercises are designed to restore the natural curves of the spine and rebalance the muscles around the joints.  This involves placing more emphasis on pelvic and shoulder stabilisation, and integration of all the parts of the body into one.  It is designed to strengthen the whole body with the main focus on the core muscles of the body.  Nubodi’s instructors have received extensive education on anatomy and alignment, and use that knowledge to help each client adjust their form in subtle ways for better results. Our reformer classes are carefully designed to be very challenging, yet balanced and healthy for the body, without making clients hold any positions or exercises for an unsafe amount of time, or excessively load up on springs.

Benefits of Pilates

 

“Physical fitness is the first requisite of happiness. In order to achieve happiness,
it is imperative to gain mastery of your body. 
If at the age of 30 you are stiff and out
of shape, you are old. If at 60 you are supple and strong then you are young.”

Joseph Pilates.
