    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

    • HIIT helps stimulate the production of HGH, Human Growth Hormone. HGH slows down ageing by increasing exercise capacity, increasing bone density, increasing muscle mass, and decreasing body fat. In contrast, overdoing long bouts of traditional cardio can actually damage your mitochondria and accelerate ageing. Sourced from Stokes KA et al. The time course of the human growth hormone response to a 6s and 30s cycle ergometer sprint. J Sports sci. 2002

Then again at Kia Kaha we just think more movement in the body and stillness in the mind is a great thing so as long as you’re getting what you need... but for more information how you can attain your goals faster come on in and see what’s possible.

    • So simple and yet so true. We often take our health as a given... till it’s not there. While these words may not resonate with you now, or they might just wash past your consciousness as your attention is on other important matters since we are all so busy. All others matters will become a lot less important if your body doesn’t operate as it should. Whether it be #backpain, #kneepain, #shoulder or #illness, how we treat our bodies greatly affects our likelihood of #injury or illness. It’s not a massive task if small changes are done frequently.. sit then becomes habit and you become one of #thosepeople 😱😱😬 .

    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.
