Our Beginners classes place a heavy focus and importance on the basics of breathing, posture and the essential movements as well as introducing you to the reformer machine. These classes are designed to help you feel comfortable with the reformer and the studio environment. It is very wise to take the time to learn these basics well, giving you a foundation of knowledge, before moving up. Even if you have done pilates before we highly recommend you attend a Beginners class for your first experience of Absolute.
