Yamuna Body Rolling: Small Ball Therapy
October 21 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Yamuna BodyRolling™ is a revolutionary approach to health and fitness using balls designed exclusively for this practice. It consists of a series of routines using 6 to 10-inch balls. Unlike other ball exercises, YBR goes far beyond random movement and stretch. It allows you to work specific muscles in detail, to create suppleness in tight areas and optimize range of motion. Yamuna Body Rolling™ re-educates muscles and stimulates bone, creating positive, permanent changes in the body. The ball moves along muscles to stretch them, dislodge tension and discomfort, increase blood flow, and promote healing.
The benefits of practicing YBR regularly are immeasurable. Yet, describing how it works can be more complicated. There are both neurological and mechanical effects from rolling. The immediate effects are to improve the range of motion of the joints in the body while strengthening the supporting muscles. This helps to suppress pain, both locally and generally, and reduce muscle tension at the surrounding area. It is the function of the joints to move and the function of the muscles to move the joints. The neurology controls all of this. When there is an imbalance of joint movement, there are secondary muscular and neurological imbalances. Regularly practicing YBR addresses the imbalances, resulting in reduced pain and improved mobility. Taking a 90 min YBR class regularly (at least once a week) results in cumulative and sustainable benefits.N
