  • The Powerhouse — Joseph Pilates created the concept of the "powerhouse," which is located four inches below the ribs and above the hips, and serves as the core or center of the body;
  • The Reformer — The main piece of exercise equipment used in Pilates is the reformer, a sort of sliding platform on springs. Much of the time, the client will be lying on their back to support the spine. The springs inform the muscle to initiate the movement from the correct place – like the Core or the Powerhouse. The springs of the reformer help the client find the correct body position more easily than they would on just a mat;
  • The Mat — When Pilates is done on the mat, the client is articulating their spine in both directions, so they can gain flexibility, strengthen their core and improve their daily life.
