We have two Reformer Pilates Studios in Dorset, one at the BASE SPACE in Parkstone and another home studio in Lytchett Matravers.


What Is Reformer Pilates?

Reformer Pilates is a bed-like frame with a flat platform that rolls back and forth on wheels. If you are a fan of mat Pilates, reformer Pilates is a great option for those who are looking for more dynamic movement thanks to springs that provide assistance and resistance.

The reformer Pilates machine is used under the direction of an instructor to help the client achieve optimal muscle length and strength in a fun and safe way.

Reformer Pilates is a great exercise for people looking to focus on core movements and isolate more muscles than in mat Pilates. It’s a great low-impact option, ideal for injury rehabilitation or for those who want a more personalised exercise programme.

The specialised reformer Pilates equipment allows for many different modifications to be made so that exercises can focus specifically on the needs of each individual client. 


Who can do Reformer Pilates? How Do I Get Started? 

Reformer Pilates is suitable for everyone, you do NOT need any previous Pilates experience to enjoy the benefits of Reformer Pilates.

At BASE, our bespoke studio offers 2:1 or 1:1 sessions, so that each client gets the individualised attention they need. During an initial consultation, the client and Emma will decide on a bespoke training outline specifically to target your individual needs. These can be anything from: core strength and proper muscle engagement, enhancing athletic performance, back pain or injury recovery, weight loss, balance, bone density and posture. 

As you progress throughout your training sessions so will your programme outline.
