Everybody thinks that you need to lay on a reformer to do true Pilates. Well that’s just silly!
See, Joe P. started on the mat, and then he built his toys (equipment). Every single piece of equipment takes exercises from the mat work and tweaks them just a bit. Sometimes those tweaks make things a bit more challenging, and sometimes they can assist you and finding that perfect form—teaser with push-through bar anyone?
Please don’t become stuck on one type of apparatus with Pilates. THEY ARE ALL TERRIFIC!
Here at Ignite Pilates in Gillette, Wyoming, we like to mix things up! You might get chair, springboard, mat, Suspension (TRX strap) or, starting in April, a bit of reformer. And, to make moves even more challenging, we can even add props—balls, bands, magic circles, weights, just to name a few. Practice and consistency are what it is all about!
Every body needs to move. Don't be scared. Come check out a Pilates class!
Will it be hard? You bet—if it isn’t hard, it’s not Pilates! But, you can’t get stronger in your comfort zone!
Will you feel out of place? Yep. But every single one of us was new to Pilates at one time!
All of us (teachers and students) are there to help each other live a healthier life. We aim to help to move better and live life to the fullest no matter what shape or size you are! Healthy looks and feels terrific, and it looks different on every damn one of us!
Joseph Pilates once said:
“In 10 sessions, you’ll feel the difference. In 20, you’ll see the difference. And, in 30, you’ll have a whole new body.”
