One of Brisbane’s best Pilates studios, Pilates Emporium located in leafy Bardon, will have you diving into the world of reformer Pilates, a fitness gem harking back to the original Pilates studio in 1920's New York.
Thanks to the brilliant mind of Joseph Pilates, this workout extravaganza combines springs, pulleys, bars, and straps to create a symphony of exercises that target your muscles like never before. Remember what Joseph himself said: "Pilates develops the body uniformly, corrects wrong postures, restores physical vitality, invigorates the mind, and elevates the spirit."
A reformer Pilates class is like a spotlight for your muscles. From core and abs to arms, glutes, legs, and back, each muscle group gets its time in the limelight with an ever-changing routine. And, let's not forget the excitement of spring resistance and gentle hand weights thrown into the mix – it's like a party for your muscles that leaves you feeling exhilarated, not to mention the upside of having the friendly and trained Pilates Emporium instructors there to guide you every step of the way.
Unlike some workouts that need recovery days, reformer Pilates can be your daily dose of awesomeness. It’s gentle enough to be kind to your muscles regardless of your age or chosen gender, yet it keeps you engaged and motivated.
The variety of moves and exercises means your body gets a 360-degree workout that spells out strength, flexibility and balance.
Before you join in on the fun, slip into your comfiest exercise gear. Remember, you might find yourself in some interesting positions! Don't forget to bring socks – they're like your workout buddies for safety and hygiene, and you can even purchase some non-slip Pilates socks from the studio before your class. Hydration is the name of the game, so keep that water bottle handy.
