The origins of the Pilates Reformer date back to the original Pilates studio in New York in the 1920’s and was designed by Joseph Pilates himself. Since then, an evolution of new techniques has evolved and these new routines have become the favoured exercise regime of many of the Hollywood stars. Beverly Hills Studios now brings these techniques to the Riviera.

DYNAMIC REFORMER PILATES

This class is ideal for anyone wishing to discover the method and techniques necessary to isolate and activate the many muscle groups solicited in Pilates. A class also suitable for a smooth recovery to sport following an injury or chronic pain, which promotes a complete work with or without accessories (weight, circles or small ball).

DYNAMIC REFORMER PILATES INTERMEDIAIRE

A class designed to test your physical strength and technical skills. With a more sustained rhythm than the basic dynamic reformer pilates to sweat more and discover more technical exercises (coordination, inversion, etc.). This class is for students who want to excel. More cardio oriented, with no downtime.

Prerequisites: at least 5 Dynamic Reformer classes or a good knowledge of the method and the material, acquired in another studio.

CARDIO REFORMER

The cardio reformer class is the most intense in the repertoire offering a true full-body workout — focused, effective and with brief and manageable spurts of intensity. Great fun!

STRETCH REFORMER

Our stretch reformer class is less intense than our standard Reformer classes. Each controlled and steady movement will carefully align the body to produce isolated stretches to specific muscles allowing to increase your range of motion. A class designed for those who can’t touch their toes, who sit at their desk all day, exposed to stress and suffer from back or neck pain. Ideal to improve flexibility, posture and relieve muscle tension.

SIX PRINCIPLES

1.

CENTERING

All movements originate from the core.

From here we support our spine, and major organs strengthen back

improve alignment and lower back.

2.

CONTROL

Control essential to every movement. Not over

exertion, this can lead to injury. Exercises performed

with control produce the best results.

3.

CONCENTRATION

The mind-body connection is the very core of Pilates,

the key to connecting mind and body is concentration.

Slow, precise, careful work. Full body awareness.

4.

PRECISION

Practice makes perfect. Proper form is essential to

ensure you gain the most benefit, every move has to be

clear and precise for success.

5.

BREATHING

Controlling your breath with deep exhalations

activate your muscles and helps to keep focused

and to remove non-beneficial chemicals.

6.

FLOW

Dynamic fluid movement makes Pilates exercises

have a specific beginning and end. Seamless transition

between movements. Grace and control.
