The Reforming Foundations Pilates studio was founded on the belief that Pilates should be for every body. We offer a wide variety of classes that cater to anyone who wishes to reap the benefits of a Pilates practice. The Reforming Foundations Pilates tribe is a close-knit community of individuals from all walks of life with a broad range of physicalities. We strive for inclusion, wanting everybody to improve their health and well-being through Pilates. Our clients reside in our hometown of Berkley and the surrounding neighborhoods or even come from surrounding areas like Rochester and Detroit.
Available Pilates Classes
The Pilates classes at our Berkley location are limited to small groups; this ensures personalized attention, so students get the most out of sessions. We recommend that your Pilates practice begins with the Foundations and Core Stability classes. Core Stability helps strengthen the spinal support muscles to achieve a neutral spine while performing challenging movements with your legs and arms. When you learn to hold your spine neutral during exercises, you develop a baseline for subsequent classes that increase the mobility of your spine.
We offer a variety of classes on Balanced Body™ Pilates equipment, including the beloved Pilates reformer, Pilates chair, and the Pilates Springboard™ developed by Ellie Herman. All of the Reforming Foundations classes utilize this equipment.
These machines can look intimidating at first, but you will quickly become comfortable using them under the guidance of our skilled and intuitive teachers. For more information and a personal tour of the studio, call (248) 469-4439.
Reforming Foundations Berkley Pilates Studio
Reforming Foundations is the brainchild of founder Brooke Alexandra. Her quest to bring Pilates to each body began in her garage in 2014, then moved to our Reforming Foundations studio in 2017. Her life’s work grew the Reforming Foundation tribe, which is now a thriving community where skilled movement is taught, felt, learned, honed, and embodied. Her Pilates program is built on the teachings of Joseph Pilates. We’ve modernized the traditional repertoire to be firmly rooted in movement science. Our method offers strategies to promote healing, create strength, build endurance, and support controlled mobility, all while improving the mind-body connection.
