A Pliable Prop

Pilates Foam Roller by Power SystemsA foam roller has many uses in the studio, from increasing a client’s stretch to adding instability. However, not all foam rollers are created equal. Some sag or slide, and the extra-sturdy models can often be a little too firm. One recent afternoon Jennifer De Luca, owner of Brooklyn’s two BodyTonic Pilates Gymnasiums , tested the new Soft Foam Roller from Power Systems.

De Luca liked the way the “mushy” roller—which feels soft and squeezable—gave under her weight, spreading on the floor and across her spine to create a broader base of support. She thought the new roller, made of EVA foam, would be a useful tool for clients who are elderly, over- or under-weight or unconditioned. Proof came when one of De Luca’s clients, a woman with a sensitive tailbone, stretched her spine along the Soft Foam Roller. The client said the feeling was, “absolute Nirvana.”

However, a regular roller may still have a place in your studio. De Luca recommends having both types of rollers available, and suggests the firmer model be used by clients who need extra challenging, while saving the softer roller for clients who want a gentler, more stable support. The $34.95 prop can be ordered through Power Systems .
