They have been seen on 20/20 News and on the popular Home Makeovers TV series in a featured multi-sensory play room.
Dancers, therapists, and Pilates instructors are often familiar with the highly dramatic and physically satisfying effects of working with springy resistance. Our high quality nylon/lycra spandex fabric not only feels good on your body but also provides springy resistance important for tactile, proprioception, and vestibular feedback responsible for good balance, co-ordination, and body control. Whole body pressure effectively calms and regulates an overactive or underactive nervous system. This is useful for motivating the out of condition exerciser, focusing the hyperactive child, blending groups of various ages and abilities, and improving parent/child bonding.
We are fortunate to have many distributors in the early childhood, physical education, special needs education, therapy, and fitness fields. Their outreach and excellent programs continue to help us reach more and more people who will benefit from our designs and programs. Some of our distributors include School Specialty, SouthPaw Enterprises, Balanced Body, Fun and Function, Pacific Pediatric Supply, Achievement Products, Autism-Products, TFH Special Needs, Music in Motion, Thinking Toys, Skillbuilders Therapy Services, and E-Special Needs. We continue to grow and are recently being represented by PhysioPilates in Brazil. Our products have homes in The Netherlands, Singapore, Australia, Israel, England, Scotland, Ireland, Japan, Korea, Germany, and Bali!

Carol Kranowitz, author of "The Out-of-Sync Child" Is your child too tired to lift a finger, or too wired to sit still, or having a homework meltdown, or scared to go to a noisy party, or otherwise "out-of-sync' at home, at school, and abroad? To help your child get regulated and organized, a one-size-fits-all solution is activity using resistive materials, such as Kimberly Dye's BodySox, Stretch-eze, and Co-OperBlanket. Pushing and pulling the stretchy material strengthens the whole child -- in body, mind and spirit! This new DVD, with its clear explanations and gentle music, will entice kids and their grown-ups to move with purpose and pleasure, and thereby get "In Sync."

Petra Kolber, Reebok University Mater Trainer, and 2001 IDEA Fitness Instructor of the Year says,

Wendy LeBlanc-Arbuckle, Program Director Core Connections® The Pilates Center of Austin says,
“I love, love, love, the Stretch-eze® band created by Kimberly. It’s a marvelous prop that activates the body’s intrinsic support structure, enabling new found access to the most difficult movements”.
Paige Waehner, About.com – Your Guide to Exercise says,
This is a great choice for people who want to do Pilates, but find typical Pilates workouts too difficult or complicated. What makes this workout unique is the use of the Stretch-eze® band, which offers full body support for some exercises and extra resistance for others. The Pilates workout is short (about 25 minutes), easy to follow and is both challenging and accommodating all at the same time.

Join MKPilates in the Isle of Man on Pilates Day 2019 at this weekend event to celebrate the opening of the Knockaloe Internment Camp Museum. "I never met Joseph Pilates but was told by those that have, that Joseph always spoke very well of his time at the camp. The first time I visited the camp it was hard to imagine how 24,000 people could live and exist in this small area. But it is here that Joseph developed his method using hospital beds and springs and many stories of how his strength of character that got a whole camp exercising is credited with helping the internees avoid the effects of the influenza epidemic of that time that took many lives. It is because of his contributions to the camp and the subsequent explosion of his method called Contrology that a special section of the museum is dedicated to Mr. Pilates."
"So this year we have brought together a great team to share the weekend with you with different styles of the Pilates Method and different stories as to why they have been invited. We have Roberta to represent the New York era of Pilates with her work from her studio in the original home of Joseph Pilates in New York. Elisa, who with APPI have been key players in the introduction of Pilates to the clinical world both in the UK and around the world and then we also have Kateryna who has a foot in both the Traditional work and the Contemporary interpretations while learning and educating other teachers internationally. When Malcolm and I organised the first Pilates Event on the Island more than 10 years ago to honour The Method and help to keep the goals of Joseph Pilates alive, we received such a warm welcome from the people of the Isle of Man. As we educate and travel all over the world, we find many teachers have no knowledge of the history of the works of Joseph Pilates."
