Beginner Only reformer Pilates classes are designed for new students to the Tempo Pilates method or Pilates in general. These classes will teach you our core repertoire and allow you to learn the method with other newcomers at a slightly slower pace.

Who is it for?

Beginner only classes are ideal if: you’re new to Pilates, the Pilates Reformer, haven’t exercised in a while, or want to approach our Beginner/Intermediate classes already knowing the Tempo Pilates method and techniques. A basic level of fitness is helpful but not essential.

If you exercise regularly – or are familiar with the reformer and Pilates principles and techniques – you are welcome to go straight into the Beginner/Intermediate L1 classes.

What to expect? Why join?

This class focuses on introducing students to the Pilates reformer, the techniques and the basic exercises that form the distinctive Tempo Pilates repertoire. Please note that this class is a workshop; the music is softer with more explanation and demonstration than in a regular Tempo Pilates class.

These classes are useful as they enable you to approach regular classes with confidence, engaging and activating the right muscles in the right way. Our regular classes are intense, so it is important to have the correct foundation to build on.

If it’s your first time you should make sure you arrive at least ten minutes early so that you don’t miss the start of the class. Ensuring you begin exercising as relaxed and stress-free as possible.

What to Wear?

Wear something that allows you to move easily such as stretch pants and a vest top, or shorts and a t-shirt. You will get hot during our classes so it is important to be comfortable. For hygiene reasons, we recommend students wear socks in class.

Water and towels are available to purchase/hire at the studio.
