Explore the Foundations collection to build an understanding of how to set yourself into position and then how to move through that position with your breath for your first beginner Pilates workout.

If you’ve got a mat or barre handy, jump into using those next! Even if you don’t have a barre, you can still learn how to do Pilates at home; try using a table edge or the back of a chair instead.
Then we get to the rest of the equipment: the chair and Reformer. If you’re wondering what on earth a Pilates chair is and how you use it, we’ve got you covered! And the same goes for the Reformer—we know it can be intimidating at first glance, but we break down how to use the Reformer in easy and simple ways. We absolutely love our Reformer exercises, and we know you will too!
Our how-to videos are designed to help you become more familiar with Pilates and its terminology as well as more confident and sure in your own practice from home.
