We offer one-to-one Reformer Pilates with our experienced Sports Scientist Diogo Martins. Diogo has been teaching 6000+ Reformer Pilates sessions and takes a holistic approach to his sessions, with a particular interest in building core strength, posture correction and injury prevention. He is also a specialist in lower back pain rehab and sports nutrition. In doing Pilates regularly, you can expect the following benefits.
Spine stability and core strength you’ll build strength at the same time as increasing flexibility and balance. The spinal alignment improves due to the strengthening of the muscles around the back, glutes and core. It will also help you look more toned, fit and strong.
Increased flexibility a good level of flexibility will help prevent injuries and improve your performance in other activities.
Injury rehabilitation during your sessions you benefit from one-to-one attention from a qualified teacher. Whether you’re dealing with an old injury or just beginning your recovery journey, your instructor will guide you through exercises tailored to your needs.
Posture correction many people spend lengthy periods of time sitting at their desk, often resulting in neck and lower back pain. Regular full body workouts on the reformer focusing on releasing tight hamstrings, strengthening the core and glutes muscles and joints mobility help release the aching pains and uniform development of all muscles.
Stress reduction practising Pilates balances the connection between mind and body. When you prioritise time for the health of your body, your mind automatically benefits of it too. Pilates increases energy levels leaving you feeling stretched, relaxed and refreshed after each session.
