Tye4® is a sleek, wearable resistance and assistance system designed to make any exercise more challenging and effective. The Tye4® bungees add 20 pounds of resistance to your workout so you feel and see results more quickly.
Tye4®, like the traditional Pilates apparatus, can be both resistive and assistive…what I love most is that it really helped my clients understand axial decompression and elongation. Clients can more effectively elongate their torsos, subsequently engaging their TVA’s, with the resistance literally against their skin. As a teacher, that works with a lot of compromised backs, this incredibly valuable! –Kelly Kane, Kane School
Tye4® embodies ‘tensegrity’- a balance between tension and compression, between push and pull. –Brent Andersen, Polestar Pilates
Tye4® has been featured in the March / April issue of Pilates Style Magazine in 2014. Read the spread here.

“The Tye4 workshop was both informative and fascinating in that there are going to be many applications for use of the Tye4 in areas that I presently travel in - ballroom, ballet, rehab, elderly strengthening and balance issues. I am creatively thinking of ways it could be used in those genres. Your presentation of the material offered to us at this workshop was outstanding, thorough, and most inspiring! I look forward to progressing in my study of the material and implementing the Tye4 applications with my students. Your humble and obedient Tye4 missionary.”- Bunny Ott, Petersburg, Florida
"The most noticeable thing for me is how light my muscles feel after I've done the routines. Generally when I do exercise routines or pulling/lifting weights, my muscles feel the same as before I started, heavy. With Tye4 they feel like a huge weight has been taken off them and that's great."
“It was fun teaching Tye4 Barre/Burn at the Peninsula, but it was even more fun attending the first Tye4 workshop where I was surrounded by enthusiastic Pilates professionals. We went faster, worked deeper, and explored the numerous possibilities of working with Tye4.”
"A new studio just opened with those souped up Reformers promoting their sweaty workouts and caloric burn. The Tye4 workout is affordable and just as commercial but still in the spirit of Pilates. Let the games begin!"
"The arm work was killer. I'm really sore but a good sore. The repetitions were great and hard. By the time we started the shoulder plank I had to stop because I thought I was going to get sick! HOT! I loved it.”
“C'est un ustensile léger et versatile, facile et rapide à mettre sur soi et qui permet de mieux sentir la connection au niveau des épaules et du centre. C'est la nouveauté idéale pour tous vos cours de Pilates, qu'ils soient mat, machines ou debout.”
“Had a blast... great training! I'm looking forward to introducing Tye4 in Massachusetts with my connections in health clubs, Yoga, Pilates and personal training studios starting with a Tye4 class for instructors.”
“I have been teaching Tye4 classes for around 3 months and my clients are progressing and loving it. Our workshop in NY was a great group of ladies from all over the states and as far away as Spain and Japan. Had a blast with all these talented teachers. By the last run through we were ready for Broadway. Looking forward to all the amazing possibilities with Tye4 and this exciting new training. I love how Tye4 makes you aware of alignment plus helps you to open extending through the torso and limbs.”
"Using the Tye4® is comparable to having a personal trainer assist me through the movements. The added resistance the Tye4® provides helps me focus on my form. I'm more aware of my hands and feet and the role they play in every exercise. With the Tye4® every movement and position is intentional. The Tye4® allows me to feel more graceful. I love the feeling of support it provides behind my back.”
“Tye4 is the most creative and innovative equipment I have ever seen. You can do most of the exercises effectively and this can spread Pilates to masses."
“WOW, my muscles are sore in a good way and my joints are fine even though I have rheumatoid arthritis!”
“Makes you hurt in new places”
“Great class for all fitness levels. I really felt all my muscles working.”
“I use Tye4 and HeadFloater everyday!”
