Pilates Kit Bag
In your amazing Kit bag, hand selected – tried and tested by Anaya, you will receive:
2 x Soft Spikey Massage Ball (9cm – PVC)
Perfect for easing away tension from those tight/stuck areas in your body and increasing your flexibility. It’s awesome for a thigh massage on your quads, hamstrings, ITB and glutes. And it can also be used to relieve upper back tension by lying on the balls rolling up and down on them or even place one under your head to ease away the stress of your day. If you get tight feet, roll the ball under your feet to aid fluidity and stimulate millions of your sensory receptors. Watch out as it can be quite intense when you first use them but the tension relief is amazing afterwards. Can be inflated and deflated to suit your needs.
1 x Soft Stability Ball (25cm – PVC)
This is a super versatile piece of equipment. Great for assisting you in curl ups/sit-ups by placing the ball under your upper back. You can use it to make your core stability work even more challenging by resting your pelvis on it and adding leg movements. You can use it to make your core stability work even more challenging by resting your pelvis on it and adding leg movements (remember if you do this watch out for gripping in your lower back. You might need to adjust how low your leg goes). The ball can also be placed between your legs to work your inner thighs. Please note that the ball shouldn’t be fully inflated. It needs to have a sag in it to allow air displacement if you are resting your weight on it. It is not suitable to stand on for instance and have your full body weight on it but will hold your weight if your pelvis is rested on it or your upper back.
1 x Cork Block (10cms x 15cms x 20cms)
Why suffer sitting uncomfortably on the floor when you can sit on this eco friendly cork block. The height of the block allows elevation of your bottom off the floor, which helps you to align your spine in a better position. The block can also be used as a prop when doing kneeling hamstring stretches and seated back stretches.
1 x Resistance band (2 metres, medium strength, latex)
Add some resistance work to your Pilates exercises with this band. Excellent if you are rehabbing a shoulder injury such as an impingement and need to strengthen your rotator cuff muscles. It can also assist you in chest/pec stretches and strengthen mid back muscles which counteracts a stooped posture. Pop it under your feet and add resistance work to your squats to help strengthen your glutes and hamstrings.
1 x Cotton Bag
Fits all items in perfectly. NB: you may have to deflate the stability ball to fit into the bag.
