about yamuna® body rolling
The body has its own intelligence, an inner memory of what it is to be ”right“ The body wants to correct itself, to let go of unproductive patterns of movement and posture, and it’s it has an innate ability to do this.

Yamuna® Body Rolling is a unique self-therapeutic fitness practice for healing, wellness and sustainability. YBR uses specialised Yamuna® Body Rolling different sized balls to lengthen and tone the muscles, improving bone density and giving the body increased muscle tone and flexibility.
Intelligent sequences have been designed to systematically de-compress the whole body, educating each muscle from its origin (point where muscle begins) to its insertion (point where muscle ends).
The ball becomes the hands of the therapist and your own weight creates the traction, release and movement on the ball. You learn to roll out each part of the body with the appropriate ball wherever you have muscle connecting one place to another there is a path to follow, for example from the buttocks to the calf, from the tailbone to the skull, from the collar bone out to the shoulder joint and so on.

Space is created around the joints by lengthening the muscles, creating optimum space throughout the body to restore a full range of motion through all of the joints.
