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.
A regular MLP Pilates regime will:
• Improve posture
• Strengthen and realign the spine
• Develop firmer, sleeker, stronger muscles
• Relieve tight muscles, body tension and stress
• Reduce body aches and pains
• Acquire natural rhythm and coordination
• Tone and define your body
• Prevent muscle and soft tissue injury
