Foam rollers, spiky balls, foot domes, lacrosse balls, wobble boards… the list rolls on.
A studio, health clinic, home gym or even your very own living room can quickly fill up with all sorts of movement tools of different shapes and sizes. Some are designed for self-massage and trigger point release, while others are geared more towards rehabilitation and exercise.
Enter MAKARLU Lotus, as featured in Good Weekend in The Sydney Morning Herald and The Melbourne Age, as well as The Brisbane Times. MAKARLU Lotus is a set of 3 nesting domes on a convex hardwood base, thoughtfully designed in Australia to accommodate a wide range of movement needs.
“Pilates and Physiotherapy treatment play an important role in helping individuals recover from and prevent injuries. However, the therapy is often dependent on the use of complex and cumbersome training aids that can only be used in a studio environment. When there is an appropriate training aid for the home or while travelling, it typically focuses on a single exercise and with an unappealing aesthetic. Often the aid is left in the cupboard and forgotten about.”
The versatility of Lotus
Through its countless configurations, MAKARLU Lotus can be used for all sorts of practical applications in a range of settings such as studios, clinics, home, work and whilst travelling. You would need a number of other products to be able to do what you can with a set of Lotus. Learn more about what is possible here.
If you missed hearing of Marie Kondo and her philosophy of decluttering your life, perhaps you were buried under a pile of clothes—or spiky balls. Kondo popularised the notion of decluttering and tidying. Basically, she advocates having less stuff, while ensuring that the stuff you do have brings you joy. You can read more about that here at KonMari.
By design, MAKARLU Lotus uses space well. The 3 different sized domes nest together like a Matryoshka doll and sit neatly atop a hardwood base. While it’s discrete in terms of not creating clutter, Lotus is simultaneously eye-catching, and wouldn’t look out of place sitting proudly on your coffee table, bookshelf, or studio reception desk.
The other tools we have mentioned are excellent pieces of equipment that serve important roles. However if you are just starting out, or simply looking to go minimal with your massage and movement tools, you’d do well to take a closer look at MAKARLU Lotus.
