Joseph Pilates called his method "Contrology" the science of control.
He invented apparatus with springs and pulleys that add a measure of resistance and support to the basic moment exercises he cam up with. The main pieces of apparatus that are used in the Pilates studio are: the Universal Reformer, the Trapeze Table (or Cadillac), the Wunda Chair, the Pedapul, the Ladder Barrel, Half Barrel, Spine Corrector Barrel, the Magic Circle and the Mat.
A typical private session in the Pilates Method might utilize the Reformer, the Trapeze Table, the Mat, and the Wunda Chair. Long term clients often get to experience the full range of apparati, as it is possible (and desirable) to cycle through the various pieces of equipment, to give a varied workout, and to challenge the body in new ways.
It is never boring!
Mat classes at Full Circle Studio offer the full range of Pilates movements without springs, and pulleys. The work is often more difficult, but many people find it beneficial, and there are many who like to alternate apparatus workouts with mat workouts, which offer the maximum benefit.
Many people report an increase in a sense of well-being, strength, and satisfying sleep. In addition, many people report a reduction in back, knee and hip pain.
