What You Will Need:
In this course we use all of the traditional Pilates equipment and you will also need access to a mat, chi ball and possibly a set of Makarlu or other tools for pressure point release. We use towels and a baby arc for extra support in some exercises as well. We have modified and varied many of the exercises from the traditional repertoire onto apparatus to better facilitate clients with various pathologies and considerations.
Below you can find a list of all the equipment used. It isn’t necessary to have access to all of this equipment to find the course useful. We try to present and discuss different options for the exercises. If you would like to purchase any of the products that are available through us, you will receive a 10% discount as a course participant in any Body Organics course.
To modify and adjust exercises to accommodate different conditions or abilities we use a range of small props that can be useful to have. It is not necessary to have access to all of these in order to get value out of the course.
- Baby Arc/Spine Corrector
- Wunda Chair
- Trapeze Table

Further Course Support
Once you’ve purchased the course, you can also order a printed colour manual to be sent to you at an extra cost if you prefer to have it on paper.
You can also join one of our live online tutorials that are being held throughout the year for an additional fee. Dates and times will be continuously updated and can be found on your course page as you log in after purchase. These tutorials will give you the opportunity to ask any questions and further explore the concepts and repertoire presented in the course. You will also have the option of booking private online lessons with one of our teachers if you have more specific questions, case studies to discuss or are wanting to delve deeper into any of the concepts presented in the course.
