MELT Pilates is a unique blend of the two techniques:

  1. First, the MELT balls and soft roller are used to prepare the body for the demands of Pilates.

  2. Then the soft half roller is used as a prop under the ribs or pelvis or along the spine during classical Pilates mat work or apparatus exercises.

 

This helps to bring you the precision of Pilates apparatus techniques and group mat class, to get a deeper core workout, while reducing the risk of injury

  • Improved alignment, differentiation & mobility.
