Need to relax and unwind from daily stress and tension? In the comfort of your bed, you can use Yamuna therapy balls for relaxation and 'restorative fitness'. With gentle pressure and traction, the balls offer a feel-good release for muscles and help to re-align and decompress joints. Learn strategic placements to free your hips, legs, spine, chest, neck, and shoulders. When the body is relaxed and at ease, it can naturally balance itself with a just a little nudge in the right direction. Balls provided for class.

YAMUNA Body Rolling®
An Introduction

Unlike other methods of body rolling, Yamuna Body Rolling (YBR) is restorative fitness that liberates your movement, heals and prevents injury, and protects your joints and spine from common wear and tear. YBR uses custom designed inflatable balls like a massage therapist’s hands. They strategically provide traction and pressure to iron out tension and pain in all areas of the body. With just a few minutes of rolling, you can avoid the old-age restrictions that so many people have. Most people find YBR feels similar to a relaxing, deep tissue massage. Even those with physical limitations can benefit from using the balls. Individuals can adapt pressure to their personal preference, while using the balls in a chair, in bed, on a wall or floor space.

Shawna will introduce YBR theory, safety, and guide you through basic routines for each body part, using a ball, gravity, and your body weight to precisely target and release tension. Learn to feel how your muscles communicate, and develop problem solving skills for your own body. You will leave feeling relaxed, energized, and with an understanding of how to sustain your body in alignment, freedom, and ease. Balls provided for class (with purchase option). Wear form fitting clothes for best results.

From the beginning of time women have always circled. In the ancient tradition of moon lodges and red tents, this time together can serve to enliven the deepest parts of ourselves and enrich our communities. A sacred woman's circle is a container for speaking our truths and witnessing one another with compassion as new insights begin to stir from the deepest parts of ourselves. This gathering will serve as an intimate time of sharing for women in all phases of life.
