Throughout class your instructor will tell you what springs to load onto your reformer. Here’s a little reminder about how to change the springs.
You will see 5 springs on your machine and a gear bar. The gear bar is the metal bar near your wooden platform with 5 notches in it. When you need to change your spring, grab onto the actual spring, the coil part and place the little part under the knob with the color of your spring on it into the corresponding notch in the gear bar so it locks in place. Please always make sure to have at least one spring loaded on the reformer at all times; so when changing colors during class, add on the new color before taking the old ones off.
