Reformer Pilates offers support to the body, keeping the back and neck protected whilst working all of the deep, small stabilising muscles. All classes focus on teaching you how to engage your “T – Zone" - transverse abdominal muscles and the pelvic floor - and to utilise the Pilates principles of breathe, control, concentration, centring, isolation and flow.
The reformer will give your body an intense all-over body workout due to the spring-based resistance and moving carriage.
We deliberately keep our classes small (maximum of 10 reformers) to ensure personalised attention and technique correction in all classes.
Classes are suitable for men and women of all ages and fitness levels, and are also great for rehabilitation and those with injury.
Jump+Reformer is a mixture of Reformer Pilates using plyometric and aerobic exercises. The movements are faster than usual, ensuring members sweat up a storm, and increase their heart rate. Balls are used a lot in this class where technical form is pushed to its limits. Enjoy testing your skills and core in this popular class where cardio is at the forefront.
Reformer/Touch of Barre uses our Reformer Pilates and also incorporates Barre. Barre movements are derived from ballet and whilst it may look easy, it is a challenging workout that our members love.

Foam rollers are utilized in two different classes at BodyLife.
-We offer a 30 minute foam roller release class, which is aimed at massaging the muscles, mobilizing the joints, improving posture and building body awareness. This class is great before an exercise class like reformer or yoga or F45 to prepare the body for optimal movement. Additionally, this class can help to realign the body from poor posture and movement habits.
-Our 60 minute full body challenge on the foam rollers offers the chance to perform traditional exercises on the unstable surface of a foam roller. This activates the body’s stabilizing muscles which lie deep in the body. Everything from a crunch (or sit up) to a bridge can be adapted to the foam roller and your muscles will be challenged at the next level.
Both classes can be adapted to any fitness level or ability.
