    Reformer Pilates

    Pilates is a form of resistance training that focuses on core stability and helps build long lean muscles. Unlike traditional Pilates, Kia Kaha Studios focus on a dynamic fast-paced workout with continuous and controlled movements that will make you leave feeling like you used your entire body.
    Our classes are assisted by a reformer bed and a range of props to add more challenge to your workout. It is the perfect mix of functional exercise and strength conditioning designed to burn and give you lean, toned muscles fast!

    The main identified health
    benefits of Pilates include:

    • Improved flexibility, stabilisation of your spine and posture
    • Increased muscle strength and tone as well as lung capacity and circulation
    • Prevention of injuries resulted from muscle imbalances
    • Better coordination and increased body awareness
    • Improved sense of well-being.

Her practice is deeply rooted in Indian tradition, where she was formed as Yoga Teacher and could experience the depth of this ancient practice. For her, the practice of yoga is about connecting the body with the mind through the breath, as a way to be in a state of awareness, inner calmness and presence. Her interest in holistic healing, as an alternative way for health and balance, leaded her to learn and practice different techniques of energetic healing, such as Reiki and Thetahealing. .

    MAT PILATES (FOUNDATIONS)

    Our Mat Pilates class is designed for all ages and is perfect for those that want to learn the foundations of Pilates, are just getting back into fitness, recovering from an injury or just want to gain a better understanding of how to use their body. A low impact modality combining a series of conditioning exercises, controlled deep core strengthening movements and resistance work emphasizing mobility in order to build control of the spine and core. We focus on the importance of a strong and stable core to improve coordination, posture and strengthen the deep abdominal, lower back and pelvic floor muscles.

    BEGINNER (MIND)

    A level designed to those who have had little to some Reformer Pilates experience in the past. This class is suitable for those that are just beginning their Pilates exercise routine, want to work a bit slower and focus on control and technique, or are working on building the strength to move up to intermediate. We will work on fundamental techniques by going through basic flows to help you solidify your movements while getting a good burn on your muscles. Here you need to get your mind to connect with your body. We recommend that you continue doing beginner classes until you are comfortable with the reformer, feel that your body awareness is good and also are starting to take intermediate springs. We advise 4-6 beginner classes before you move, but consult your trainer for an assessment.

    INTERMEDIATE (BODY)

    A perfect step to take when you are feeling confident and have built on the skills learnt in the Beginner level. These classes are higher in intensity and have continuous flow with harder options. In this level, your strength, balance and core stability will be challenged and tested. Before you move to Advanced, we recommend that you become comfortable with our terminology and feel that you know the majority of our movements. We advise 10-15 intermediate classes before you move, but consult your trainer for an assessment.

    ADVANCED (HEART)

    A class for those who have substantial experience in the Reformer Pilates method, a high level of fitness and great understanding of the Kia Kaha Way. This level is for the ones with reformer pilates settled in their hearts as we will push you to your limits. With complex sequences that will challenge your body and mind, you will need to have the Kia Kaha mantra to push through. The flow is faster, the exercises are harder and your body will burn.
