Discovering Joe’s Lost Apparatus
One of the most exciting aspects of my pilates career so far as been being a part of the reintroduction of many pieces of Joseph Pilates’ “lost apparatus” and teaching each of them to the pilates community through Pilates at The Pillow™. So far, these pieces include the Archival Ped-o-Pul, The Resister, The Bench Mat, The Original Pilates Home Mat, the Original Toe Corrector, and The Bednasium.
Additionally, each of these apparatus has original instructions, pictures, and/or film directly from Joseph Pilates, that we also pass on to Pilates at The Pillow™attendees. It is our ability to cite multiple references as well as, in most cases, share the original apparatus itself, which is what makes us The Pilates Source™ for information on these archival pieces.
Many people are unfamiliar with the Lost Apparatus and attend Pilates at The Pillow™ to enhance their knowledge of the depth of Joe’s work as well as their teaching toolbox in an effort to provide their students with as well rounded of an authentic experience as possible.
