MY FAVORITE PILATES PROPS

Props are incredible helpful to challenge or facilitate an exercise. Sometimes it’s fun to discover how your body reacts when you add a prop into the equation.

1 THERABANDS
Lot of therabands, different strength and colors: inexpensive and space savings. The only thing is to watch out for the heat, keep them out from source of heat. The theraband can be a facilitator with some exercises, but it’s amazing to tone arms and legs.
My favorite exercise with the Theraband it’s a variation of the exercise Saw, that I assure you, you feel every muscles of your back and arms working a lot.

2 POLE
I love the pole, maybe new Pilates generation doesn’t work a lot with the Pole, but I believe it’s a really interesting prop for body alignment, to build strength on your smallest muscles of arms and shoulders and to work on the diagonal myofascial slings.

3 FITNESS BALL
Comes generally in 3 measures, you choose the size of the ball depending on your heigh, I find this prop fun fat every age, amazing to improve balance, symmetry and core stabilization.
