Reformer & Intro to Reformer
The Reformer is ideal for every body type, level of fitness, and age group. The Reformer acts as a support system for the body by helping assist it into proper form. It adds resistance to the Pilates exercises via the use of the springs that form part of the machine. It develops core strength as it dynamically works to both stretch and activate muscles. Intensity can be varied considerably from one person to the next, making it an incredibly versatile piece of equipment to use. This capability, combined with the support afforded by the resistance the machine provides, allows people of all capabilities (including those with limited range of movement or injuries) to safely complete exercises. Provision Studio offers small classes guaranteeing that you will receive guidance and support throughout the class.
We also offer an Intro to Reformer class for those new to the Pilates method or those new to the reformer. The Pilates method is so important to learn and understand before jumping straight into a class! During a Intro class, you will learn how to align your spine and pelvis by using your core in order to correctly, and safely, perform the exercises. You will also have the chance to become familiar with the equipment and the studio.

Mat Pilates + Flow
Mat Pilates is the basis for the entire Pilates system of exercises. On the mat, your body weight provides resistance against gravity and you focus on small isometric movements to challenge your muscles and change the shape of your body. You must be in full control of your body, rather than relying on the assistance or support of the springs and cables of an apparatus. Mat work is a great option for beginners because of its emphasis on learning how to control your muscles during exercises.
Mat Flow utilizes your own body weight for resistance and is designed to raise your heart rate.
