Our Reformer classes are great all round body workouts. The Reformer can rapidly change the way you feel and look by offering the body both resistance and the assistance that we sometimes require for a more challenging exercise in order to engage the correct muscle groups.
Each student has their own Reformer for the duration of the hour long class. We have three Reformers in total and a great deal of fun along the way!! Be prepared to work hard and to learn lots about your body. We have different levels of classes for you to choose depending on your experience.
I cannot recommend Shannon enough for anyone wishing to start or continue their Pilates practice. Over several terms I have taken classes with Shannon and some of the other instructors. All the teachers are professional and friendly throughout and classes have a personal feel. The instructors consistently get to know and remember their clients, their strengths and areas for improvement. I really appreciate the close attention paid to correcting postures and the explanation of how and why changes will benefit you. The hour long classes fly by and I wish I had time for more than one a week! I leave each Thursday feeling calm, strong and six inches taller!
I was having very painful back problems and decided that I would give Pilates a try to see if I could somehow manage my pain and mobility issues without having to resort to spinal surgery! I started out with a beginners’ mat class and the exercises I did quite literally kept me going – I’d walk into class all bent out of shape and walk out as tall as can be. Shannon is caring and takes time to make sure that you’re OK with the exercises you are doing and only encourages you to do what you can do within the limits of your own body.
