    Ellie Herman’s Pilates Workbook on the Ball was such a good book that I had to get this book of hers too. I am very pleased with the exercises, and like having now the variety of Pilates exercises on the big ball (from the other book) as well as Pilates on the roller, magic circle, and thera-band, from this book. Everything is well laid out and explained. I highly recommend this book.

    This book is excellent , it’s probably my favorite pilates book I have.There’s tons of exercises for the foam roller , elastic band, magic circle/small ball and a few exercises with a pinkie ball and even one exercise with a towel.The book is very comfortable to use because of its lay flat binding and the writing is concise and easy to follow along with the pictures.

    There’s also a “suggested workouts” chapter with programs for specific body parts(like :knee ,foot & ankle ,lower back) to help you rehabilitate in case you have injuries and want to strengthen those parts also there are full body programs for every prop and one multiprop workout using all the props together for a challenging and varied workout ,the programs are laid out as charts with small pictures so it’s really easy to follow.

    This book is the only extensive source I know for integrating props in Pilates , so it’s worth buying.

    This is an excellent Pilates props book. I guess it’s the best one, since it may be the only one.

    More importantly from my perspective with a chronic rotator cuff problem, it has the best exercises on the topic. Rotator cuff exercises are majorly boring. I never got the point of using therapeutic bands since I couldn’t feel anything happening and the repetitions are tedious. I think that’s the case with all the stabilizer muscles, except for those in the abdomen. You can’t really tell when they’re working, although you sure know when they aren’t.

    Anyway, this book definitely has the best rotator cuff rehab exercises and some good variations with photos. There only are a few books on the topic or that show such exercises. Trust me that this one is the best, since I’ve dealt with the wretched problem for years and am starting to show more patient improvement now.;-)

    There also are very good back and knee and other exercises for recovering from joint or spine injuries, as well as for general fitness. I like the back stuff better than some of the books devoted to that topic, including a few that come from a yoga perspective.

    As usual, Amazon has the best prices and shipping policy. Ordered on a Thurs, arrived on Mon morning with standard, free shipping. Amazing!
