Yamuna Body Rolling™ 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™ reeducates muscles and stimulates bone, creating positive, permanent changes in the body. Yamuna Body Rolling works the way a hands-on practitioner works, only using a ball. The ball replaces hands as it moves on muscles to stretch them, dislodge tension and discomfort, increase blood flow, and promote healing.
The Yamuna Body Rolling practice has earned respect from chiropractors, physical therapists, Yoga instructors, Pilates and Gyrotonic instructors, massage therapists, bodyworkers, fitness instructors and dance teachers.
"The beauty of Yamuna Body Rolling is that it takes you from the origin of the muscle at the tendon, elongating the muscle while stimulating the bone and soft tissue. Working with the body's own gravity, the exercises ease movement in the muscles to the point of relaxation, offering one of the finest weight-bearing exercises, with the benefits of a deep self-massage."
--Ms. Fitness Magazine
"Rolling is that tension starts where the muscle originates-in the dense
fibrous tendons that anchor them to bone. It's this precise attention to stretching muscles
from tendon to tendon that makes the exercise unique…After 15 minutes of doing the
exercises on both legs, I can bend over and place my palms flat against the floor, a move I usually only execute at the end of a two-hour yoga class."
--Catherine Guthrie, Health Magazine
