THE PILATES PROGRAM

The MLP Pilates Program is a unique method of resistance-control exercise designed to strengthen and stretch muscles, open up joints and release tension. It is a very precise, intelligent exercise system promoting the message ‘quality, not quantity’.
 
Through the repetition of slow, precise muscle toning exercises, Pilates educates the body to use muscles in a correct and controlled manner, emphasizing correct body alignment, proper breathing techniques and quality of movement.
 
Our Pilates program includes floor mat sequences or equipment-based exercises incorporating spring and weight resistance to increase exercise intensity.
 

 
The MLP Pilates Program exercises are deceptively simple, but very effective, so no more than ten repetitions of each exercise is required. Within weeks of starting Pilates you will notice your stomach is flatter, your muscles are more toned and your joints will be freer and more supple.
 


 
A regular MLP Pilates regime will:
 
Improve posture
Strengthen and realign the spine
