Milates Wellness Programs

Milates Wellness is a complementary program to Milates fitness and caters to clients, who truly seek long-lasting positive lifestyle change that ultimately leads to the state of well-being. We neither promote nor support fad diets, quick fixes or magic pills. Not only are they ineffective, but they can also be very harmful. Sometimes, clients can reach desirable goals in a relatively short period; however, the most challenging part is sustaining the achieved change.

We are aware that long-lasting positive change usually requires changes in several domains of our life and full commitment. Therefore, we teach clients how to recognize and deal with all possible obstacles that could stem from different spheres of their lives. Once you overcome those obstacles and positive change becomes ingrained in your daily routines, it then becomes an inseparable part of your lifestyle that facilitates your path to well-being.



Marko M., MAO, LCPC, CCRC utilizes up-to-date approaches tied to cognitive-behavioral, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness principles. These approaches are evidence-based and scientifically proven.

Marko believes that people contribute to their own psychological problems, as well as to specific symptoms, by the way they interpret events and situations. Therefore, he utilizes techniques that are based on the assumption that cognitions, emotions, and behaviors interact significantly and have a reciprocal cause-and-effect relationship.

Marko has successfully helped numerous clients who suffered from a wide spectrum of unhealthy emotions, such as anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, and anger. He tailors these counseling approaches and their techniques to your unique personal needs. Marko is providing different modalities of psychotherapy, such as individual, couples, and group therapy.

Marko is an active therapist who asks questions and offers consistent feedback to guide the session’s focus. It is his belief that only the counseling process in which all parties are actively involved leads to a transformational long-lasting lifestyle change.

I saw changes in my body after only 4 weeks!! No other exercise class or fitness program has provided me with the same results so quickly.

I love Milates and I am someone that finds working out very tedious. Mila has an exceptional disposition and because of her workouts I feel strong and confident about my body…I have never experienced this feeling before and it feels amazing!!

Milates is worlds better than Pilates! I’d done Pilates in South Africa (2 yrs) & UK (6 months) before moving to Canada where I looked for somewhere that would offer Pilates close to my apartment. I found Milates and thought I’d try it. The basic methods of core strength being important is about the only similarity, otherwise Milates was a much more holistic form of exercise. After only 6 months I felt stronger, had better body definition & generally had more fun in the classes than I had had for any previous Pilates sessions. Mila was always very aware that most of us worked desk jobs & she’d have exercises to counteract the negative influences of sitting too long, of bad posture, & generally relieving stress and tension. What also impressed me was that Mila always remembered who had what injury, and she’d have specific/different exercises for that person so as not toexacerbate their injury, but rather to help them get over it. At one stage we had 3 pregnant ladies who were at class almost right up to the births!

In preparation for my wedding, I joined Milates for 8 sessions. Through a series of balance, light weights, resistance bands and ball exercises, I was pleased to witness my once-saggy upper arms transformed into finely-sculpted artwork; in addition, I toned my midsection to near flat, and legs to lean. The highlight of the program, however, was the positive state of mind created through a community of supportive women.

Mila’s choice of music brings tranquility into the over-stimulated brain, and her enthusiasm and charm keep you smiling while you sweat. No wonder she’s had the same clients for years, and her classes are always full!
