Wunda Chair

Like the  reformer, the Pilates chair is another of  Joseph Pilates’ resistance exercise apparatus. The Pilates chair is basically a box with one side that can be pressed down against the resistance of springs, like a large pedal. The pedal portion is divided into two parts that can be worked independently.


Traditionally, Pilates chairs were made of wood, with a padded top and pedal. The chairs that Joseph Pilates designed actually did double-duty as furniture, converting into sitting chairs.

Exercises on the Pilates Chair. Though the basic design is simple, there are a myriad of exercises that can be performed on the Pilates chair. It is excellent for strengthening the core muscles, of course, and also the arms and legs. Exercises are done lying, sitting, and standing on the chair, as well as from positions to the sides of the chair. One can expect a lot of stability and flexibility work on the chair. It is truly a testament to the ingenuity of the Pilates method to see how many exercises can be done on the Pilates chair.


Class pre-requisite for Wunda Chair: A good understanding and knowledge of the Pilates Method of training. Experience with reformer & matwork essential. A one on one private session is reccomended to get a good understanding of the dynamics of the chair. This can be booked online or by calling/emailing the studio.
