This energising yet soothing workout elongates, tones, strengthens and aligns the body. Using Yamuna's revolutionary technique and special YBR balls, you'll work muscles you didn't even know you had while increasing your overall circulation, freeing up muscle restrictions, improving range of motion, flexibility, and posture and developing core strength. The best part is that it feels like a deep tissue massage.
Yamuna Body Rolling™' works the way a hands-on practitioner works - only using a ball. The ball helps to stretch your muscles, dislodge tension and discomfort, increase blood flow and promote healing.
Lying over the YBR ball, you literally roll your body out like dough, stretching and elongating your muscles. Starting where each muscle begins, at its origin, you roll toward where it attaches to the point called its insertion.
Using YBR on your spine, you are stimulating the nerve roots which, in turn, stimulate our vital organs and glands. This encourages lymphatic drainage and even helps some people lose weight by increasing the metabolism. It also helps to relieve those icky situations like constipation and fluid retention.
YBR also relieves headaches, lower back problems, back, neck and shoulder tension and problems stemming from the repetitive stress syndromes, such as carpal tunnel.
Trouble sleeping at night? Take just 5-10 minutes to roll out your back and neck. This affects the nerve roots of the spine, which sets off a deep relaxation response. You'll be snoozing in no time. We all need our beauty sleep!
Using different sized balls for different parts of your body, there are routines that will help everyone ... from professional athletes to desk jockeys! Use YBR while on the job to work your back, legs, chest, shoulders, and neck - without having to make extra time for it after work. Perfect for us busy bees who never have enough time!
For those jetsetters out there, the YBR ball is also an easy traveling companion; just simply deflate it and take it with you when you're on the road!
YBR is the perfect compliment to your Pilates, yoga and fitness routines. It does wonders for runners, cyclists, golfers, dancers and marathon computer users alike!
With proper training, YRB can safely be used by those undergoing chemotherapy, recovering from surgery, suffering from an injury and even moms-to-be. The routines are easy to follow and can be adapted to people of all ages and physical capabilities.
YBR was originally created by Yamuna (Ya-men-ah) Zake, whose name means river. Like flowing water, her work as an educator, bodyworker, herbalist and aromatherapist is all about the flow of positive energy!
