About Beginners Self Care Yamuna Body Rolling 5 week course
Yamuna® Body Rolling gives you the ability to “work on yourself ” anytime, anywhere, forever.
This Beginners Self Care Yamuna Body Rolling 5 week course will help you improve posture, flexibility, strength, and alignment.
Disc herniations, chronic tension patterns, lower back pain, neck problems, shoulder problems, sciatica - the list of common complaints goes on and on.
Using a small ball we roll the body out, creating space in the joints while toning and elongating all the muscles. The result is a total de-compression of the body - you will walk away taller and with greater range of movement in all the joints. It's amazing how much body trouble we can ease in just one session.
‘Body Rolling puts the foam roller to shame. It gets into those stuck places much more effectively’.
Yogis and Pilates students in particular will find Yamuna body Rolling a smart tool to compliment your practice.
Week 1 Focus: Building foundation
Every day our feet are subjected to tremendous weight-bearing stress. This can also cause strain to the knees. By working through the muscle chain from the knee to the foot, we will create space in the joints, freeing the legs and enabling a solid connection into the feet.
Week 2 Focus: Freeing the hips
With hip replacements becoming more common and hip alignment affected due to desk-based jobs, impacted sports and accidents Looking after our hips is essential to maintaining flexibility and strength at every age. we will explore way to open up the hip region, relieving pain and dramatically increasing joint range.
Week 3 Focus: And Breath
Hunching over or having pain in the back, shoulders and neck can lead to restricted breathing. We will work on releasing the entire rib cage, freeing up the back and knowing what it means to fully take the biggest possible breath in.
Week 4 Focus: Do you carry the world on your shoulders?
The shoulders and neck are a major point of stress in the body, with injuries and built up of tension very common in this area. We will explore ways to dissipate tension and feel rejuvenated, light and open in the shoulders, neck and upper back.
Week 5 Focus: Maintaining a healthy back
Back pain is one of the most common problems. We will explore routines to specifically create space between the vertebrae's of the spine elongating this entire area. As well as activating our abdominal muscles which aid in the maintenance of a healthy back and a stronger centre.
