As the exercises on the Reformer advance, the apparatus becomes less of a support and more of a foundation for you to levitate off of. At the highest level, your Powerhouse is the magic carpet that lifts you right up off the apparatus. Even if you’re not ready for the super advanced moves in this workout, you’ll benefit from Niedra’s preparation cues to learn the support for what is to come. It's worth noting that Niedra's student Lesley thought she wasn't strong enough for the backbends she shows so beautifully here, but with Niedra’s expert adjustments, Lesley looks ready to join the circus. This class was filmed at Mind2Body in Sherman Oaks, CA, where Niedra runs a Pilates Teacher Training Program. You can find Niedra’s complete teaching schedule at her website,

    This class was awesome! I loved how Niedra explained the backbend, I can’t wait to find someone to spot me and try it out with those points in mind! The class was beautifully executed by Lesley, great job.
