In this apparatus demonstration, Kathi Ross-Nash thoroughly explains the uses and proportions of the traditional Reformer and the reasons Joe Pilates created it the way he did. Kathi first shows you how to properly set up and use your Reformer, explaining how the angles of the footbar, shoulder blocks, straps, etc… are proportioned to fit any body regardless of height. She then takes a student through a basic level workout to illustrate how the body fits within the frame that the Reformer provides, and how the exercises here parallel the exercises on the mat. Whether you’re a Pilates enthusiast or an Instructor of many years, there is much to learn from Kathi’s talent for communicating and evoking the exacting standards and true depth in the Pilates method.
