Let's talk props!

I am so incredibly thankful for the opportunity to continue to teach Pilates ONLINE!
One problem we face, however, is the inability for me to be able to share my props with you.
There is no need to go out and buy something if you do not choose to, and often we can use regular stuff that is sitting around the house, a pillow, a towel or even a cloth grocery bag in replace of a ball or resistance band.
But for those that would like to, I promised I would share some Amazon links to find the props we use in a usual class. (using Amazon Smile is a great way to give back while getting the convenience of Amazon).
The two main props we use in class are the small stability ball and the resistance band.

I am going to share a few links for each prop, the brands may be a bit different from what I buy in bulk but they will work still fantastic.
Small Stability Ball
The Overball is the ball we use in class -
The Stott brand ball is fantastic as well, the 7.5 inch is the correct size -
The Nononfish Mini Exercise Ball is also a good choice at a better price and you can pick your color! -

Resistance Band - One note is that Amazon does not sell many options for single resistance bands, they do have many three packs, which is not a bad deal and having different resistance weights is a great way to build endurance.  
Theraband (we use these too) does sell single bands! - 
They also sell a three pack! -
Gaiam sells a great three pack as well, and is a brand I trust - 
Benificer also makes a nice three pack, I've never used this brand but the reviews look good -

Again, please do not feel obligated to buy anything, but if you fancy yourself a ball, band or both while we Stay Home, I hope this is helpful! Please feel free to contact me with any questions!
