The next step for fans of both Yoga and Pilates, body rolling is the ultimate way to promote physical well being without the bulked-up results of conventional workout methods. Yamuna Body Rolling is a workout, massage and chiropractic treatment all in one.
Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR) 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.
YBR re-educates muscles and stimulates bone, creating positive, permanent changes in the body.
Research shows that lower back, pelvic pain or the fear of pain can affect the timing and synergy of contraction of muscles. The current theory is that pain or non-optimal joint function scrambles the messages from the brain to the muscles. Since you can't strengthen a muscle that your brain isn't talking to, starting out with improper strengthening exercises may reinforce a non-optimal pattern of muscle activation (compensation) that you already have. Furthermore this scrambling doesn't improve once your pain has resolved. This is where YBR can be so very helpful. It 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 and increase blood flow. Lying over the ball, you literally roll your body out almost like dough, stretching and elongating your muscles. The YBR routines follow specific sequences that match the body's own logic and order. Starting where each muscle begins, at its origin,you roll toward where it attaches to the point called its insertion. Regular attendance will help eliminate compensation patterns and promoting 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.
A quote from Yamuna Zake's Facebook posting
"In an interview with a Japanese magazine, the subject of women in there fifties and the common problem of weight gain came up. It seems to be a common issue for women in every country. I explained my theory of why common fitness practices for burning calories stops working when women reach peri- menopause and beyond. This concept of increasing cardio exercise repetitively stressing our joints just when we are going through hormonal changes that directly effect bone and soft tissue seems illogical. Women feel alone and frustrated when their bodies are not responding the way the fitness experts tell them they should. Women need a totally different approach to taking care of their body structures during
this time. They need to take the impact out of their bodies, realign their joints, work their feet and the reflex points to reignite them, give direct stimulation to the vital organs and a lifting and aligning of the spine to revive the nerve roots so that they can begin to function again. Sounds like a lot of work, but it isn't. It is just a different way. We have to change our brains to change our bodies."
Combining Yamuna and Pilates is one of the best ways to get the intended results from the Pilates method. Both methods are dedicated to
working slowly and methodically to help you build a strong, toned, well -aligned body. At the core of Pilates is the concept of how to connect the abdominal muscles to the spine creating core stabilization to be able to move safely and correctly out from. Yamuna Body rolling can quickly help you to achieve this correctly.
What Yamuna® Body Rolling combined with Pilates can do for you:
-Because all of the Yamuna work is based on aligning and reorganizing the structure so that it will function optimally it makes sense to want to combine it with Pilates. It will enhance your results.
-Yamuna combined with Pilates will improve your ability to perform the Pilates mat class and avoid common areas of over use.
-By combining the Yamuna abdominal and spine work to a Pilates mat class many of the core principles of Pilates become easier and more effectively felt in your body.
