New clients will need an account with MINDBODY which can be created through our website or through the MINDBODY App (Download app from the Apple or Android icon at the bottom of the page).

We recommend starting with our Foundation Reformer or Stretch & Restore Reformer as these classes are more beginner friendly to help acclimatise you to the Reformer machines and get you more comfortable with the Pilates Studio Como Repertoire.
Reformer Pilates is performed on the reformer machine which is a bed-like frame that uses weighted springs to create resistance.
Reformer Pilates is generally more intense and dynamic than mat-based Pilates due to the repertoire of exercises available. The exercises typically work muscles through a wide range of motion, which is ideal for strengthening muscles as well as increasing joint stability.
Bookings can be created through the MINDBODY App or our website *here*.
