Transform Your Body and Mind with Pilates Reformer Classes

Transform Your Body and Mind with Pilates Reformer Classes

You will never love a movement practice more than when you take a Pilates class at SVAC, one of our most popular classes!



Don’t make the mistake of walking into a Reformer Pilates class thinking it’s going to be easy, my friend! Although Pilates is often described as “gentle” because of its low-impact format, that doesn’t mean you won’t work up a good sweat. Pilates helps to foster that super important mind-body-spirit connection while making your core wicked strong. Plus, you’ll see big improvements in your balance and posture. 

So come on all you Hotties, SVAC is hosting Pilates classes every day of the week, with extra classes added throughout the month. If you haven’t yet joined, March is your month!

Strong movement starts from the inside out. There’s no better feeling than going through the activity of daily living — at home, at work, or at play — and realizing your Pilates workouts help you move with ease and without pain. Regardless of what your “why” is, or  the #1 reason you put your best effort into every single class, the Pilates method helps you get there.

Pilates Burn is a powerful class with all movements helping to fire up your core first, with prime movers added in to develop your strength, power, mobility, and balance. We use a variety of props to better connect with the body’s core muscles so you can train stronger. Guaranteed, your core will be talkin’ to you during and after the workout!

Pilates Reformer Classes


Combining Pilates with a reformer machine, you can target specific muscles, choose how challenging the exercises are, work with modifications and progressions, and still get the major benefits of traditional Pilates for your core, spine, and muscle tone. The reformer machine supports your body as you stretch and lengthen muscles and move in ways that are more difficult in a standing position. This is a must-try class with an enthusiastic leader who will expertly guide and direct anyone at any fitness level for the best workout possible.


A Pilates reformer is an excellent tool for members who are looking to take their Pilates workouts to the next level. This innovative and gentle piece of equipment combines the principles of Pilates with the resistance of springs and ropes to provide a challenging, full-body workout. The reformer’s adjustable platform allows you to work your muscles to the max in a low-impact environment, improving your balance, coordination, flexibility, and core strength in the process. With each exercise, you’ll feel your muscles working and your body transforming, as you build a stronger, leaner, and more toned physique. Whether you’re a seasoned fitness pro or just starting out, the Pilates reformer is the perfect tool to help you reach your goals and have fun while doing it!
