Clinical Reformer Pilates

We are delighted to introduce Clinical Reformer Pilates to goPhysio in Chandlers Ford. 

Having run specilaist Clinical Pilates classes now in Chandlers Ford since 2011, with such a fantastic space from which we can offer classes and a wonderful team of clinically trained Pilates Instructors, expanding to offer Reformer Pilates is an exciting move for us and our clients. 

Who is Clinical Reformer Pilates for?

Reformer Pilates is perfect if you:

  • Have a persistent injury that keeps coming back and you want to address the cause to stop this cycle
  • Have a long standing condition (such as arthritis or back pain) that would benefit from targeted, supported and specialist exercises to help your pain and activity levels
  • Want to strengthen, tone and improve your body’s flexibility
  • Have limited ability to get on and off the floor to exercise, as the Reformer bed is raised
  • Either want more help and support and an easier Pilates exercise programme or want significantly more challenge! Reformer can be adapted to both ends of the scale depending on your personal goals

What exactly is Clinical Reformer Pilates? 

Reformer Pilates, much like mat Pilates, focuses on exercises based on quality of movement and control. The exercises teach you to move better, focsuing on weaker areas and deep, stability muscles that often play a part in pain and injury. 

Reformer Pilates is based around a key piece of equipment - THE REFORMER! The Reformer looks a little ike an old-fashioned bed frame and consists of a movable carriage which is usually loaded by a number of springs that attach to the carriage to the frame. The carriage slides within the frame and the springs provide varying resistance, either to assist exercises or make then harder. There are also a number of ropes and pulleys attached to the carriage and frame, which are used to either assist or resist certain exercises, providing additional help or challenge depending on the exercise and individual! 

What the Reformer provides is significant feedback throgh the exercises, helping people learn more about their body and focuysing on areas that really need targeting. By using the Reformer, you can learn correct technique with a supported posture and with either additional assistannce or gradually increasing resistance.

It really is a whole body workout and a wonderful way to improve posture, stability, flexibilty, stamina and strength, as well as rehabilitate following injury or help manage long standing conditions such as arthritis. Here at goPhysio, we offer a more specialised form of Reformer Pilates, Clinical Reformer Pilates. This means it is run by highly skilled, clinically qualified Pilates Instructors who incorporate the concepts of injury, rehabilitation and Pilates to help you get the best outcomes. 

What does a Reformer session involve? 

  • Your first session will always start with us getting to know you, what you are looking to acheive through coming to Reformer Pilates and discuss any injuries, issues or conditions you may have. We will go through some simple physical tests and exercises so that we know what level we are starting at and to help us develop the perfect Reformer Pilates programme for you. It's totally bespoke and individualised. During that first session you'll be introduced to The Refomer equipment (including some essential health & safety!) and learn how the machine works and the different elements to it. You'll get started with some of the core exercises and start getting to grips with your programme. 
  • Your specialist Clinical Instructor will put together a programme for you that will cosnist of a series of Reformer Pilates exercises. During your session, you will work through your programme, with your Instructor adjusting the machine, providing hands on support and feedback and progressing you as required. 
  • All sessions are 55 minutes.
