Where form meets function.
Lotus was designed with a focus on versatility and elegance.
MAKARLU Lotus is a highly versatile health, exercise and self-care product (prop, tool, device, aid, equipment) made up of several components. Lotus can help to improve how you move and feel by promoting movement in different ways. It’s used to facilitate:
- balance (both static and dynamic)
- flexibility (muscle, joint and whole body)
- strength (postural strength, core strength, functional strength)
- mobility (joint and whole body)
- joint range of motion
- tactile stimulation and challenges
- massage of soft tissue (including muscles, tendons, ligaments, or other connective tissue such as fascia)
- myofascial (muscle and fascia) release
- muscle recovery (including delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS))
- improved posture and postural awareness
- pain relief
Like a Matryoshka doll, the 3 Nesting Domes and Rocker Base of MAKARLU Lotus fit snugly together. The components can be used individually, or in combination with each other in countless configurations.
Large dome – Diameter 12cm (4.7″) – Blossum covered with nodules in the form of petals
Medium dome – Diameter 9cm (3.5″) – Seed pod with dimpled texture
Small dome – Diameter 6cm (2.4″) – Seed with firm, smooth, soft-to-touch texture
Rocker Base and Mat – Diameter 14cm (5.5″) – Crafted from Australian Spotted Gum, East Asian Bamboo, American Walnut, or European Ash

The distinctive sizes, textures and contours of each component of MAKARLU Lotus provide unique tactile input, fascial grip, and treatment focus. The all-in-one versatility means that Lotus is suitable for the whole body – from head to feet and anywhere in between.
Versatile and Adaptable
Use Lotus in different ‘configurations’ for a wide range of ‘applications’.
Compact and Portable
Take Lotus with you wherever you go, whether to the studio or gym, work or home, or while travelling.
The 3 Nesting Domes design feature lets you vary the firmness of your MAKARLU Lotus set, by adding or removing inner domes.
The range of firmnesses is helpful for accommodating individual needs, or to use on different areas of the body.
MAKARLU Lotus comes with an embroidered drawstring carry bag. Our bags are made from heavyweight black canvas and features French seams, double drawstrings, and two inner pockets. There’s a pocket for each Lotus, or travel with a single set and use the other pocket for your possessions.
Our Lotus bags were inspired by the elegant simplicity of ‘kinchaku’, a traditional Japanese drawstring carry bag or pouch. Kinchaku is a small bag worn like a purse or handbag, typically used for carrying around personal possessions like money, lucky charms, medicines and cosmetics.
