WHAT IS REFORMER PILATES BY JAMES SHAW, BLOC.PILATES
What Is Reformer Pilates?
The Pilates Reformer is by far the most popular large piece of pilates equipment designed by Joseph Pilates. We still use all the same principles as mat pilates but instead of the mat we use the reformer. It's a bed like piece of apparatus which has resistance springs to make the moves harder or easier according to your motivation and goals. This is perfect if you're looking to rehabilitate the body from injury or loose weight and tone muscle. The pushing and pulling with the arms or the legs against the resistance springs will increase strength and muscle tone and balance the body. Also it helps with the mobility and range of motion of joints and give greater muscle flexibility! Along with a rocking tight core.
6 Pilates Principals
Giving fully focus attention to mind & body connection. Using the mind to muscle connection to give greater awareness to you're movement. Slow and steady wins the race, you're better to take you're time and get the correct form.
To centre yourself to create a deeper connection with your powerhouse (core) been able to harness this connection can work the muscles more effectively.
Using the precision when doing a move and remembering progression not perfection. Looking to improve each time you practice. Reap the benefits and balancing the body.
Breath is the connection between the mind and the body. Been able to use the breathe to keep focus with the movement and activate the muscles deeper.
Flow of the movements are imperative. Think graceful and elegant which will in turn give greater proprioception of your bodies movement.
Using control of the movement to work the muscles deeper. Using precision of the move and using a controlled slower pace will ensure you'll work the muscle more effective and get great results.
