Can I do Pilates with an injury?

The low impact and controlled nature of Pilates makes it the perfect form of exercise when rehabilitating from injury. Nearly all of our exercised can be modified to accommodate injuries/

 

That said Coach Pilates is a fitness based studio and we do not offer any Clinical Pilates classes that specialise in rehabilitation.

 

So once you have been cleared by your medical professional we are all good to help you rebuild your body.

What is the difference between reformer and Mat Pilates?

When practicing mat pilates you use your body weight and small props for resistance.

 

Reformer Pilates is uses the equipment called the Reformer – this bed like machine consists of springs and pulleys. 

 

The introduction of the reformer and it’s spring system to pilates means that we can increase or decrease resistance to make exercises easier or harder. The additional resistance element is something that cannot be found on the mat and allows for faster more effective workouts. 

 

Reformers also add more options for modifications making it more suited to beginners or people recovering from injuries
