Enjoy the experience of Pilates outdoors on holiday under the blue sky, with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean.
Pilates is a fitness and strength training system that works to keep the body supple as well as training muscular strength. Pilates are often used as part of physiotherapy to promote recovery from injury.
We offer both Matwork and Reformer Pilates to get you in shape while you enjoy your holiday experience. Several dedicated Pilates camps take place each year, with classes available throughout the year.
Pilates is one of Club La Santa’s most popular activites, especially now that we have sessions using the Pilates Reformer machines, a perfect complement to your Pilates Matwork.
Reformers, the original piece of Pilates equipment, can assist or offer resistance depending on your exercise aims. Using springs and pulleys, the reformer allows you to push yourself to a level above what you can achieve on the mat.
For those of you who are already proficient on the mat, the reformer machine allows you to practice a move and, as you gradually increase in stability and flexibility, you are able to perform the move unaided. These exercises are also a great way to improve flexibility for guests who play a lot of sport.
The reformer machine is a highly specialized piece of equipment that should only be used under supervision or by experienced users. We have an area in the fitness centre where you can practice matwork exercises, equipped with fitballs, medicine balls and stretch bands to aid your movements. In addition, we have one reformer machine that can only be used if you have participated in one of our classes, or are an experienced user.
The Green Team offer a range of Matwork Pilates and Reformer Pilates sessions for both beginner and intermediate levels, which you are welcome to join in for free. We do have a limited number of Reformer machines, so please check availability in advance in Sportsbooking if you are interested in these classes.
If you would like to progress your Pilates to a higher level, or have an instructor correct your posture and demonstrate different exercises, Personal Instructions could be perfect for you, in eiter Matwork or Reformer Pilates. Groups interested in Personal Instructions can pre-book through the Sales Office or Groups Department before arrival.
