Your healthiest addiction

open Reformer

Our open level classes are suitable for both beginners and experienced Pilateers.

An open level session will give you the tools to challenge yourself as much as you want for the day.

Taught with a layered approach to empower our members to listen to their bodies and take what they need from the session on the day.

Reformer Pilates takes the principles of Pilates; breath, coordination, focus and alignment and applies its exercises to a spring based resistance workout.

You will receive a well rounded exercise that will work you from top to toe, our classes will improve your core strength and posture and will not disappoint.

Offered at both studio locations

Barre

Barre is a ballet and dance inspired exercise class that moves to the beat.

No dance experience is necessary, this class is open to all levels and to pre and post natal clients.

Barre class is mainly done standing at the ballet barre and has a big focus on building tone in the lower body 🍑

We will also include mat Pilates sections for abdominal work, an arm section and a back strengthening section.

This class is a high energy and super fun class that will work up a sweat in the best way.

Options are always available for those who want them and this class is offered at both studio locations (barre is pronounced ‘Bar’)

TRX

TRX is a strap that hangs from the ceiling with handles. We use the TRX for this whole class.

The TRX straps make gravity your resistance, so adjusting the difficulty of an exercise is as easy as moving your hands or feet.

Here, progression is limitless. Our TRX teachers are all Pilates & TRX trained so the class is taught with a Pilates layered approach, unlike your gym style class.

TRX is taught with technique and correct form first so you get the most from your workout.

This is one of our harder classes and can be a good class to work your way into as you become more familiar with Lifted.

This class is not suitable for pregnancies, and requires the use of your hands, wrists and shoulders for most exercises. 

Offered at both studios

yoga

We offer two styles of yoga at our studios. Yin and Flow:

The essence of Yin yoga is surrender. It focuses on postures that lengthen the muscles surrounding the hips, pelvis, and lower back.

Students typically hold these postures for 3-10 minutes per side in order to lengthen the connective tissue that surrounds the joints and increase its elasticity.

Since a Yin yoga practice often includes several long, seated forward bending postures, it also restores energy and calms the nervous system.

Flow: You can expect a fun, playful flow.

To connect with your breath. To find a meditative rhythm within the flow and movement.

A balance of strength and stretch/ flexibility based practice. To leave you feeling rejuvenated, nourished and ready for your day.

beginner reformer

Our Beginners sessions are a great way to start if you are new to Pilates and/or exercise and want to take it a bit slower to get the ball rolling.

Generally, new clients will do 1 or 2 beginner sessions before moving into an open session. Some of our lovely clients prefer the beginner pace, and that’s OK too.

This session will focus on the foundations and basic movement in a slower paced and informative class. We will ensure you are comfotatble using the reformer machine, and start to get a feel for the basics in this session.

Currently only offered in our Hamilton studio. For beginners in Raglan, please start with an open-level session. We will look after you in class.
