Replace your multicoloured gaggle of props and spiky balls with Makarlu Lotus

Foam rollers, spiky balls, foot domes, wobble boards… the list ‘rolls’ on.

A studio, health clinic, home gym or even your own living room can easily fill up with an array of health tools of different shapes and sizes. Some are designed to enable self massage and trigger point release, while others are geared more so towards rehab and exercise.

Enter Makarlu Lotus, as featured in Good Weekend in The Sydney Morning Herald and The Melbourne Age, in addition to The Brisbane Times. Makarlu Lotus is a beautiful set of 3 nesting domes on a convex hardwood base that can replace many of the exercise props that clutter your space.

Makarlu Lotus


“Innovative, elegant and timeless, Makarlu Lotus breaks new ground in the field of studio props and tools that facilitate proprioception, myofascial release, balance and movement.”


Versatility of Makarlu Lotus

Through its various ‘configurations’, Makarlu Lotus can be used for all sorts of ‘applications’ in a range of settings – in the studio, at home, at work and whilst travelling. You would need a wide array of other health tools to achieve what you can with a Makarlu.

Minimalism with Makarlu

If you’re yet to hear of Marie Kondo and her concept of decluttering your life, perhaps you’ve been buried under a pile of clothes – or spiky balls! This year, Kondo has 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 three different sized domes nest together like a Matryoshka doll and sit neatly atop a hardwood base, made from sustainably sourced Australian Spotted Gum. While it’s discrete in terms of not creating clutter, Makarlu 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 all excellent pieces of equipment that serve important purposes. We use them daily, we love them and we aren’t intending to get rid of them. 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.
