Mat Pilates is not inferior to Reformer Pilates – indeed, we still include it in many of our sessions. But Reformer Pilates does bring some extras to the table:

  • Exercises are more supported – the apparatus tends to hold everything together! It’s harder to get it wrong.
  • It provides more variety – there are almost limitless exercise options
  • It’s great for people with mobility problems, who find it difficult or impossible to get down to and up from the floor.
  • It puts you in a better position for the instructor to spot mistakes, modify incorrect position, etc.
  • Many people simply find it more enjoyable, with a greater sense of flow.

On recommendation from my Physiotherapist, Julia and her team at Wantage Pilates Studio helped me after my first pregnancy. I was suffering from lower back pain and had a history of back injuries. Within a short space of time I felt significant improvements. Julia also took a keen interest in my foot problems (I had been wearing orthotics for years) and helped me to build up all over muscular strength, so that I no longer needed to wear the orthotics… I can now wear flip flops and sandals in the hot weather!! Julia has a huge amount of knowledge and enthusiasm for Pilates. Thanks to the WPS, I am now fitter and more active than ever and feel that I can take part in activities that I had previous thought were no longer possible.
