Do you need a professional mat to do Pilates? No! Every workout on Pilatesology can be done with a simple floor mat. See what kind Alisa recommends and where to put your hands and feet if a video cues to use handles or a strap. Filmed at Pilatesology Studio.

    Thank you for this! You say we need a mat that”s thick enough to protect our spine. Can you tell us about how thick that is? I have a 6 mm yoga mat. Thanks!

      Hi Kelly14, Good question – I have a 6mm yoga mat and it’s perfect for my husband to roll on but if I put it on a hard floor it’s just barely enough for me–it’s different for each body depending on how much your bones stick out of your spine. So try rolling on it carefully and if it hurts at all, it’s too thin. If your spine doesn’t feel like it’s going to get bruised then you’re all set!
