Elevate Encompass…What? Why?

eStudio Pilates + Yoga utilizes the Elevate Encompass made by Total Gym Commercial as our “Gravity” Reformer. Users work multiple muscle groups together for a complete workout that challenges proprioception and core stabilizers by integrating multi-plane movement and unrestricted range of motion in nearly every exercise. The ELEVATE Encompass™ works on an incline, relying on body weight resistance, strengthening the way the body executes daily physical activities.

Gravity Pilates is for everyone, regardless of your current level of fitness. This is largely because the machine can easily be adjusted to suit your current strength and fitness levels. Because this is such a low impact workout, the risk of injury is significantly reduced, as is the strain on your back. This also makes Gravity Pilates a great rehab workout.

eStudio Pilates + Yoga uses a modern, innovative Reformer but the exercises themselves are traditional! It is of the utmost importance that our members experience the true works of Joseph Pilates along with the principles and foundational elements from Comprehensively Certified Pilates Instructors so that when a member is taking a class, they KNOW that they’re actually “doing” Pilates!
