What is a Pilates Studio?
Joseph Pilates’ established the Pilates method in what we now refer to as a Pilates Studio where the vision of health combining body and mind was imperative. The repertoire, tempo, rhythm, energy, transitions and sequencing of exercise were Joe’s vision of health. Joseph Pilates intended that the session be a strong full body and mind workout.
Pilates is so popular now and studios are popping up everywhere. But are they a Pilates Studio that effectively provides a full body workout? Or are they what can be referred to as a ‘Reformer Studio’? Many people don’t realise that a Pilates Studio should contain many different pieces of Pilates apparatus not just the Reformer.
In a good Studio Pilates session, the individual components of the session are defined and transitions between exercises and equipment is smooth and logical.
The full Pilates workout includes a mat, reformer, and typically two additional pieces of equipment that are selected by your instructor during your workout to improve and address your unique body challenges or personal goals.
