Pilates accessories

These are small items like balls and bands that studios provide to enhance your Pilates workout. They can provide support and stability or offer more challenge, depending upon the movement being performed and how they are used. Creative instructors rely on props to add variety. Here are some of the most commonly used Pilates props and how and why we use them:
1. Foam Roller This versatile prop, a mainstay of athletic training and rehab, is designed to smooth out the fascia. Its rounded shape, however, means that it can pinch-hit as a Spine Corrector. The wobbly surface challenges balance. Placed beneath the shoulder blades, the Foam Roller offers support in Abdominal Curls and facilitates spinal extension. 2. Hand Weights In Pilates, we use light Hand Weights to keep the emphasis on the entire body. One- or two-pound weights add challenge. 3. Theraband This long, stretchy band, available in varying levels of resistance, is great for stretching the hamstrings and lower back while lying on the Mat. The band can add resistance and challenge in many exercises. 4. Overball This squishy inflated ball is one of the most versatile and commonly found props in a Pilates studio. When placed between the inner thighs, ankles, or palms, the Ball invites the engagement of the surrounding muscles. It’s also a great modification tool when placed under the spine or hips for extra support. Pregnant women can use a Ball behind the mid-back to avoid flat on the back for an extended period of time. 5. Tennis Ball Joseph Pilates invented several small pieces of Pilates equipment specifically to engage and work the feet, most famously the Foot Corrector. The small size and firmness of Tennis Balls make them ideal for waking up the feet. Try rolling the sole of the foot over a Tennis Ball while standing or seated. Tennis balls can also be placed under tender areas such as the hips or shoulders for a static stretch or gently rolling massage. 6. Franklin Ball These small, inflatable balls are used to massage and wake up the muscles and fasciae. Placed beneath the pelvis, lower back, shoulders, or other tight or sore spots, Franklin Balls work with the body’s own weight to release tension. These balls can be used for static holds or you can slide them back and forth across the fasciae for a self-massage. 7. Magic Circle Perhaps the most well known and versatile of all the Pilates props, this deceptively simple tool has endless uses. A Circle held between the ankles, thighs, or palms is a useful tool for finding the mid-line. 8. Yoga Block In yoga classes, blocks are commonly used to bring the floor closer to you. In Pilates Mat classes, these firm but not rigid foam blocks can take the place of a Magic Circle or an Overball.
