Reformer Pilates is Pilates on a Reformer machine, and is the most effective piece of kit in the entire Pilates repertoire. The Reformer is a spring based piece of equipment that provides both resistance and support. The Reformer’s resistance (which can be changed depending on the exercise and depending on the individual using the machine) allows you to set it up to suit your body perfectly, meaning that all the work you do on it will be extremely effective, providing enough resistance to build strong bones and muscles, building strength while increasing flexibility.

For us, nothing beats the Reformer – that’s why we were Cork’s first dedicated Reformer studio! The Pilates method using the Reformer gives our clients what they want in the least amount of time: a toned, energetic, lean, pain-free body that moves with ease!


This class is to introduce you to the Reformer machine and to the Elite Pilates Principles – core engagement and connection, breathing, alignment and breath. We move at a slightly slower pace as we take you through 60-70% of the repertoire of exercises that you would typically see in a Level 1 class. All our clients need to complete an Intro class or a 1:1 session before progressing into Level 1.
