Description: These workouts will not only challenge your body, but will also exercise your mind! During the Advanced Reformer on the Mat, Bob "translates" the work to the Mat. Use your imagination while performing the exercises because the straps, springs and foot bar are gone.
The advanced Reformer workout is both challenging and inspiring as it offers many variations of the traditional exercises that are often "left in the closet." NO POWER PILATES CE CREDIT AVAILABLE FOR THIS WORKOUT
Instructor: Bob Liekens
Bob Liekens, originally from Belgium, traveled to New York City in 1983 to further explore his dance career. That same year, he started his Pilates training at The Pilates Studio. Fascinated by the Graham technique, he initially pursued studies at the Graham Center for Contemporary Dance. In 1991, he became one of the first certified teachers in the technique. Subsequently, he taught for two years at the school.
In 1986 Romana Kryzanowska invited him to teach the Pilates method. Starting in 1993, he has been instrumental in building her teacher-trainer certification program. He co-created the training manual and originated the current exam system. For several years now, Bob has been invited, both nationally and internationally, to conduct teacher-training seminars, workshops, and continuing education programs.
In September, 2000 he became a director at Power Pilates and was an integral part of the Power Pilates Teacher Training Certification Programs. Bob also practices yoga and in 1999 became a certified yoga teacher.
