Reformer Pilates classes in Montreal

The Pilates Reformer is a form of Pilates using a device called the Reformer. This versatile apparatus mainly consists of a moving carriage and springs, allowing for a variety of exercises aimed at strengthening and lengthening the muscles, improving posture, flexibility, and coordination.

The Pilates Reformer offers a full-body workout, adaptable to all fitness levels. Thanks to the adjustable resistance of the springs, it allows targeting specific muscle groups while promoting correct alignment and better body awareness.

Reformer sessions are ideal for those seeking an effective and personalized workout, whether for rehabilitation, athletic performance, or general well-being.

Develops core strength

Resistance on a reformer is adjustable using a system of springs.Each participant can adjust the springs according to his or her own needs, strengths, and goals.Adjustable resistance quickly helps to develop the core strength of each participant, whatever their age, gender or basic physical condition.

Lengthens muscles

The Reformer helps to lengthen all the body's muscular chains.The resistance of the machine's springs allows you to go further and deeper into your movements.

Improves flexibility and mobility

The reformer's elastics allow us to further stretch the muscular chains and fascia, helping the body become more supple and mobile. This allows for a more extensive sensation of physical freedom.

Reduces tension in the back

The reformer allows us to feel lighter and helps us execute movements with greater fluidity and finesse, reducing general muscular tension.

Which Reformer Pilates class is for me?


If you have never done Pilates Reformer, this class is mandatory (even if you are in good physical shape and regularly do mat Pilates).

You will need to start with one or more introductory courses to learn how to use the machine. The instructor takes more time to demonstrate the basic exercises so that you may begin to integrate the Pilates vocabulary that’s essential to take you further.



This class is designed for people who have already completed 1 or more reformer initiation classes.

The beginner’s course helps you solidify the basics. The instructor provides useful explanations to help you understand the exercises. More repetitions and movements help you work harder and integrate details that will make the difference in your ongoing practice.



This class is open to beginner and intermediate level students who have already taken introductory and beginner level classes.

Basic vocabulary and exercises are integrated into this level to offer more variation, rhythm, and fluidity. We go further into body awareness while still offering beginner and intermediate options to suit both levels.



For those with solid experience on the Reformer.

These classes focus on rhythm, coordination and balance. Exercises build upon previous ones through quicker sequencing. Pilates vocabulary and the basics are needed for this class. Exercise options and variations proposed by the instructor are at an intermediate level. Ask your instructor if they think you have the required level. The instructor may refuse you access to the class if you do not have the required level.

What are the class times?

Any questions ?

If you have never practiced Pilates on the Reformer before, the initiation class is mandatory.

You will learn how the machine works, how to position yourself, make adjustments, the terms used, etc. We recommend 1 to 2 Pilates Reformer initiation classes before moving on to the beginner class.

If you have already taken Pilates Reformer classes at another studio, you can start with a beginner class.

After your first class, we invite you to ask the instructor which level to follow: beginner, regular, or (exceptionally) intermediate.

If a class is full, you can still add yourself to the waitlist. You can view your requests in the ‘waitlist’ section of your schedule.

We encourage you to join the waitlist. There are often cancellations the day before or on the day of the class.

If a spot becomes available, you will automatically receive an email (or text) notification to inform you, so keep an eye on your messages. At that point, you are considered enrolled in the class. You have the option to decline the spot if you respond immediately to the message. However, if you do not attend without prior notice, it will be considered an absence, and you will be penalized.

If no spots become available, you will not receive any messages, and your package will not be debited for that class.

It is essential to note that each person is different, and progression varies depending on individual physical abilities, experience, and goals. It is important to listen to your body, remain aware of your limits, and progress at your own pace.

We encourage you to ask the instructor which level to follow: beginner, regular, or intermediate.

We don’t have classes exclusively for plus sizes; everyone is welcome in our classes, from the youngest to the oldest and from lightweight to plus sizes.

Regarding the weight limit, it is 349 lbs on our Allegro® 2 reformers.

For plus-size individuals, some positions may be slightly more challenging, but they are achievable without straining. The instructor always offers several exercise variations, so you can choose the one that suits you best.

If you arrive between 10-15 minutes after the start of the class, you can enter discreetly and signal to the instructor, who will indicate if you can join the class. Beyond 20 minutes late, you will not be allowed to enter the class. Thank you for your understanding.
