I did a restorative workshop yesterday and one of my clients has MS and we used my new Alignment Strap on her and it made it so much easier for her. She is also a yoga teacher and also saw so many benefits for people with physical disabilities.
I ordered 4 bands to start with. I have a small group of 4 women who have all had knee and/or hip replacements. I am always looking for new ideas to keep the classes beneficial, motivating and safe. I am hoping to get some more ideas on how to use the band beyond the poses in the video.
It seems the reviewers below have some ideas and I would be so grateful to hear them. It would be helpful to get a page of exercises with the band or one on the website that can be downloaded. The bands have brought a level of excitement and curiosity to this group. Yesterday was our first day with the bands and everyone sees the potential for them. Thanks. Looking forward to finding new ways to incorporate them. I can see that a 5 star rating is possible with some helpful ideas.
Hi Adele! Thank you so much for the feedback! I have great news! Our team has just released a new blog post sharing some Amazing benefits and new ways to utilize your Alignment Band.

“I spent about a month working with the essential alignment band, and had several revelations about how to use it as a tool to support many poses. What I mean is, good alignment, precise stretching and working within ones’ range of motion is incredibly important. This band helped me with that, and I can’t even imagine how helpful it would be for someone who is more new to the practice. It allows for greater reach, stability and certainly safety. I highly recommend it, and can definitely see how it can be used for all levels of practice.”
“It’s the band we always dream about as instructors. The one that doesn’t roll, doesn’t chafe on bare feet or bare thighs. The band that has functional movement in mind that can offer you even resistance from your fingertips to your toes and everything in between. The band that has no limitations and will NOT break! I’m obsessed!!!“
“The alignment band gives me instant feedback in the areas of my body that need extra attention while doing exercises. It’s a brillIant and exciting new way to strengthen, align and deepen my self awareness as a pilates teacher, student and dance instructor. I highly recommend this product to students and fellow colleagues within the field.”
