I often am asked, where can I get that ball? That foam roller? That Pilates book? The answer my friends is right here! These are products I use and recommend. Enjoy!
These pinky balls are GREAT for relieving sore muscles. You can roll your feet on them, lie down on the floor and place the ball under your back (not your spine) or you can stand against the wall and roll the ball on your back and across your hips. Feels great!
Therabands cut into 5 foot lengths are perfect for Pilates! I used to buy a box and cut them into the appropriate size. Glad the company got wise and packaged these for students to buy. Take them with you when you travel or to the offices. Perfect way to stretch it out anywhere, anytime. Detailed ideas included. Highly recommended!
Click to buy beginner or advance pack here. Both sets are nice to have but if you’re just getting started select beginner as it will come with 3 resistance levels. These are non-latex, which is also nicer for most people.

I like this magic circle because it has foam on both sides of the ring
making it possible to push out as well as squeeze. Useful for all kinds of exercises and comes with a video. Discover why we sometimes call it the ring of fire! click to buy
Once you’ve tried a foam roller you’ll wonder how you ever lived
without one. Perfect for massaging tight back, hip and leg muscles. Of course you can do some Pilates on those rollers, too. Meanwhile, get rolling! click to buy. Note these comes in different densities-if you’ve never used one, select the “white” for firm. The grey is extra firm, I love it but might be a bit much of you’re sensitive and have super tight muscles. If you like deep tissue massage, you’ll like extra firm.
These small inflatable balls are soft, easy to grasp and squeeze between your legs or as a support behind your back. Inner thighs are key to accessing the pelvic floor. Get yourself one of these and you’ll more quickly find your core. click to buy
