1. **Full-Body Workout:** The reformer machine allows for a wide range of exercises targeting all muscle groups, providing a comprehensive and balanced workout experience.

2. **Improved Strength and Flexibility:** By utilizing resistance springs and various adjustable components of the reformer, you can build strength, increase flexibility, and improve overall muscle tone.

3. **Enhanced Core Strength:** Pilates focuses on core stabilization and engagement throughout each movement, leading to a stronger and more stable core, which is essential for overall posture and spinal health.

4. **Low-Impact Exercise:** Reformer Pilates is gentle on the joints, making it suitable for individuals of all fitness levels, including those with joint issues or injuries. It offers a challenging workout without the strain on your joints often associated with high-impact exercises.

Overall, attending a Reformer Pilates class offers a dynamic and effective way to improve strength, flexibility, posture, and overall well-being, making it a valuable addition to your fitness routine.

The frequency of practicing Reformer Pilates depends on individual goals, fitness level, and schedule availability. However, to experience the optimal benefits and see noticeable improvements, we generally recommend attending Reformer Pilates classes at Latona 2-4 times per week.

Consistency is key when it comes to Pilates practice. Regular sessions help build strength, improve flexibility, and enhance overall body awareness more effectively than sporadic workouts. Additionally, the progressive nature of Pilates allows for continual challenge and refinement of technique with consistent practice.

That being said, it's essential to listen to your body and avoid overtraining. It's perfectly fine to start with 1-2 classes per week and gradually increase frequency as you feel stronger and more comfortable with the exercises. On rest days, incorporating other forms of physical activity, such as walking, yoga, or light stretching, can complement your Pilates practice and promote overall fitness and well-being.

Ultimately, finding a balance that works for you and fits into your lifestyle is key to achieving long-term success and enjoyment in your Pilates journey. Our instructors are here to support you in creating a personalized practice schedule that aligns with your goals and needs.

1. **Comfortable Workout Attire:** Wear clothing that allows for ease of movement, such as leggings, yoga pants, or athletic shorts, along with a breathable top.

2. **Grip Socks:** Grip socks are highly recommended to provide traction and stability during exercises on the Pilates equipment. If you don't have grip socks, we offer them for purchase at the studio.

3. **Water Bottle:** Stay hydrated throughout your class by bringing a water bottle with you. We have water stations available for refills.

4. **Towel:** You may want to bring a small towel to wipe away sweat during your workout.
