Clinical Reformer Pilates

Take your fitness and core stability to the next level with clinical reformer pilates at The Wellness Practice.

What is Clinical Reformer Pilates?

Clinical reformer pilates utilises a specialised machine with springs and pulleys to provide a challenging and controlled workout lead by a Physiotherapist. Unlike traditional mat pilates which uses bodyweight exercises, reformer pilates incorporates a reformer machine for added challenge and support. With clinical reformer pilates, you’ll not only strengthen and lengthen your muscles but also enhance your overall well-being, leaving you feeling stronger, more flexible, and more energised.

Our intimate group sessions cater to all abilities, from beginners to seasoned athletes. After an initial 1:1 assessment with one of our Physiotherapists, you can join our small group reformer pilates classes.
