Isn’t reformer pilates better?
Pilates mat work is the basis for the entire pilates system of exercises. In general, a traditional pilates mat class will work your legs, stomach, lower and upper back muscles. On the mat, your body weight provides resistance against gravity, making the workout more challenging in many cases.
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. But also an amazing challenge for the more experienced pilates practitioner.
So don’t be fooled, while mat classes are great for beginners, they are also strong and effective. You are using your body all the time and the reformer isn’t there assisting or supporting you. Many clients see results after just a few mat sessions including improved strength, posture, agility, flexibility, and tone.
