Reformer Core Yoga

Reformer Pilates is fast becoming the go-to class if you’re looking to strengthen and sculpt your body.

The practice has received particular press attention this year, with personalities from newlywed Megan Markle to professional World Cup football players singing its praises – join this movement of elite trainers and get the qualification to deliver effective, safe yoga and core classes on the reformer machine.

With a focus on resistance and alignment, this 20th century concept of exercise is undoubtedly challenging for both the body and the mind. The whole workout is done on a reformer machine – a sliding metal bed with springs and pullies, which adds intensity to the exercises through resistance.

As practiced today, yoga and Pilates are both celebrated for their numerous health benefits, from offering connection to the body and stress relief, to developing flexibility, strength, control and endurance. There are countless interpretations of both disciplines (and one person’s balance class is another person’s cardio) but what links them both is breath work.

This course will prepare you to teach a broad range of exercises, variations and modifications performed on the Reformer, and how to combine Mat and Reformer based workouts for increased variety and intensity.

It will develop your sequencing skills so that you are able to safely and effectively teach yoga flow on the reformer, yin on the reformer and core Pilates.

This course is limited to a maximum of 6 students and is 48 hours of training.

Dates for course:
Saturday 24th October 8.30-12.30pm
