The principles of natural movement inherent in the Classical Pilates Method is the lens through which we observe and address biomechanical inefficiencies. Using specific Pilates techniques, imagery, classical apparatus as well as “hands on” spotting and cueing, we analyze gait, posture and muscle imbalances and teach you how to take ownership of your movement practice. At Reform Pilates we teach movement as dynamic and interconnected and routinely customize and adjust the repertoire in our specialized groups to suit the unique bodies that we are guiding.

The Classical Pilates repertoire is comprised of exercises designed to address the whole body so that range and ease of movement, flexibility, and strength is re-gained or achieved in a balanced way. However, not anyone can perform pilates exercises correctly without embodying essential movement skills–especially students with specialized needs. At Reform Pilates students build strength in a knowledgeable, safe and supportive environment. We teach progressive, awareness based movement skills that have practical, functional, real life application. Please contact the studio to inquire about our specialized individual or group sessions.

The Pilates Method

The Pilates Philosophy which emerged with Joseph Pilates’ 1954 book Return to Life Through Contrology is a vision of health and well being that gives context to his exercises.

The 3 guiding principles include breath, wholistic health and personal commitment.

Joseph Pilates named his movement regime ‘Contrology’ based on his observations of the natural movements of domestic pets and wild animals. He believed the mind and the body must actively engage to achieve physical fitness. Movement Principles are elements you learn in the Classical method and are present in the successful performance of all the Pilates exercises.

It’s inconceivable that Joe intuited the science of mindfulness in 1945 yet he writes, “One of the major results of Contrology is gaining the mastery of the mind over the complete control of your body.”

What we hadn’t yet discovered and what has taken scientists until recently to measure is that our brains are changeable. The term neuroplasticity has gained traction and used commonly in reference to our ability to create new connections between brain cells. By mastering new skills we not only improve neurological function in our brains, we improve motor function and postpone the ill effects of aging, decreased brain and body functions and more.
