The human body is a marvellous biomechanical system designed for movement. Correct movement of the body leads to an efficient balance of all its interrelated parts. Strive for this balance, it’s a journey well worth it.


Breathing is the origin of all movement

The props

The Pilates Method in its truest form embraces all pieces of equipment designed and developed by Joseph Pilates. A Pilates workout that integrates all the Pilates equipment is one of the most rewarding. Read more about the primary pieces of Pilates equipment from our certified manufacturer Pilatech.

Reformer
The Universal Reformer is the most renowned of all Pilates equipment. It consists of a wooden structure that accommodates a gliding carriage. The springs attached to one end of the wheeled and padded carriage allow gliding movement back and forth due to a handle-and-strap pulley system at the other end. It is a very simple and yet versatile piece of equipment that is supplemented with various accessories – long box, pole, prolongation straps, jump board – granting a vast range of exercises. The exercises – in supine, prone, seated, kneeling and standing positions – range from athletic preparation to orthopedic rehabilitation.
Cadillac
The Cadillac evolved from the elementary concept of physiotherapy equipment as it was implemented in hospitals during the last century. It bears resemblance to a bed with a fixed metallic frame assembled above from which various springs and accessories may be fixed at different angles and heights. The Cadillac is predominantly used for more static, isometric exercises and is considered the second most important piece of Pilates equipment.
Tower / Wall-Unit
The Tower or Wall-Unit is a piece of apparatus based on the Cadillac. The Tower promotes the use of good body mechanics, integrating the back and abdominal muscles for spinal flexion, axial elongation and extension. Classes utilising the Tower involve both arm spring and leg spring exercises. The focus is first on stabilising the pelvis and spine. After having mobilised the spine, it is then held still whilst working with good control to move the extremities.
High Chair / Wunda Chair
The original version of the Chair in a closed position resembled a simple armchair. However once opened and turned upside down, it revealed its function with a mobile platform attached to springs to regulate resistance. Today the Chair has been developed into a substantial piece of studio equipment which allows the promotion of good posture, balance and muscular strength. The exercises are executed in standing, seated and kneeling positions as well as lying supine, prone and sideways.
Ladder Barrel
There are three variations of the Barrel, the largest being the Ladder Barrel. It has a vertical stainless steel “L” structure with wooden bars like a ladder and a padded wooden semicircular part similar to a lying barrel. Exercises range from basic back and leg stretches to intense abdominal training.
Magic Circle
The Magic Circle is a metallic ring approximately 40 cm in diameter. The ring is covered by flexible plastic or a soft, rubber shell. Padded handles on both the inside and outside of the ring allow for added comfort. The Magic Circle can be applied to isometric exercises, during Pilates on the Mat or as a complementary tool on the Reformer to further challenge balance and control.
Spine Corrector / Small Barrel
The Spine Corrector or Step Barrel is intermediate in size to the Ladder Barrel. It’s semicircular part is directly connected to a small step on one side. The small barrel or arc (not pictured) is a smaller variation of the Spine Corrector without a step.
