People often ask me if a Yoga mat is okay for Pilates. The answer is yes... but conditionally.
Here's an example of an inexpensive mat on Amazon with the right thickness:
In Sunday's body rolling class we use a small set of various shaped balls... not foam rollers. Everyone knows I am completed OBSESSED with Yamuna balls and I use them everyday. I also love the Yoga Tune Up balls and I use those several times a week.
Yoga Tune Up Balls
I have these at the studio... if you're in Ventura, you can buy directly from me and I can drop them off on your doorstep - or you can buy them online.
Yamuna Body Rolling Balls
You can buy Yamuna balls from the studio, directly from yamunausa.com or as a kit with an instructional DVD on Amazon. I recommend starting with a black and a pearl or silver. Yamuna is on the higher end of cost spectrum -- and while I think it's worth it for the quality if it doesn't fit within your budget I can recommend a more affordable option.
Here are some alternative options for balls you can buy to use in the body rolling class.
