The Reformer itself is a piece of equipment with a sliding carriage, springs, and various attachments that allow for a wide range of resistance-based exercises.

    • Reformer: The Reformer is a specialised piece of equipment used in Pilates. It consists of a sliding carriage attached to springs, which provide resistance. you can perform a variety of exercises lying down, sitting, or standing on the Reformer, using straps and pulleys for added resistance.
    • Yoga: Yoga typically uses minimal equipment. A yoga mat is commonly used to provide a stable surface for asanas, and some styles of yoga may incorporate props like blocks, straps, and bolsters to aid in achieving proper alignment.
  3. Focus:

    • Reformer: Pilates on the Reformer places a significant emphasis on core strength, stability, and controlled movements. It targets specific muscle groups and often incorporates flowing sequences.
    • Yoga: Yoga has a broader focus that extends beyond physical fitness. It emphasizes the integration of mind, body, and spirit. In addition to physical postures, yoga incorporates breath awareness, meditation, and a focus on mindfulness.
  4. Movement Style:

    • Reformer: Pilates on the Reformer involves controlled, precise movements. The exercises are designed to engage specific muscles while maintaining proper alignment and control throughout the entire range of motion.

  5. Philosophy:

    • Reformer: Pilates, including Reformer exercises, was developed by Joseph Pilates and focuses on building a strong, balanced body through controlled movements and breath.
    • Yoga: Yoga has diverse roots and philosophies, with various styles emphasizing different aspects such as physical fitness, spiritual growth, or a combination of both. It has a rich history and cultural context that extends beyond the physical practice.
