Unlike a lot of Pilates courses, my training integrated mat and machine right from the start. In a studio we use machines which could be described as very basic gym equipment. The beauty is in this very simplicity and allows for an enormous range of exercies and variations. Interestingly, an exercise done on the reformer may take on a different dimension when performed on the cadillac or chair - or even mat.
I currently teach in two Central London studios, fully equipped and spacious.
