I discovered Yamuna Bodyrolling when I was living in New York, Yamuna was teaching from her studio on Perry Street which was around the corner from where I was working in Tribecca. I found it so helpful to keep me flexible and injury free especially when I was really busy doing massage. It is so good to know how to roll out your body yourself. Compliments massage really well as it prevents muscles tightening up again so great to do between massages. I am always recommending bodyrolling to my clients. I loved learning from Yamuna and used to cover her yoga/bodyrolling class for her. I also did some massages for her clients including the musician Lou Reed.
I am so delighted to have you here to learn some Bodyrolling. It is great for releasing tight muscles from housework, gardening, sports, desk work and all kinds of general stiffness, aches and pains.
Do you have a ball? What works best is a ball, something like a small football. If you like a deep tissue massage go for something firmer. I would not recommend using tennis balls or hockey balls (except on your hands and feet) as too firm for this technique. You can buy a ball from me for £10.99 including postage inside the UK. I also sell rollers if you need one for £15.99. Use a yoga mat to roll on and wear comfortable clothing. If too baggy the ball can get caught up in clothing. Its also a little sore against bare skin so leggings and t-shirt or vest are perfect.
This is a library of videos covering each part of the body. The more often you repeat the videos the more familiar you will become with the technique. Your body will release quickly with practice and it will become more natural.
This is a new healthy habit you can use regularly to massage your whole body. Don’t just focus on the sore areas, this is a good way to get your whole body balanced out.
Be careful around injuries! There is ‘good pain’ and ‘bad pain’. Good pain feels sore but like your body needs it to release as it is tight. Bad pain feels like you shouldn’t have done that. So avoid that experience by working carefully around injured areas. If in doubt contact me first and double check with your doctor or physio. I want you to become injury free rather than aggravating existing injuries.
A brand new easy to follow online program tailored specifically to teach people how to roll out their body themselves (like a pro) at home. Giving you the skills and knowledge how to roll out stiffness aches and pains your self at home.
What I love most about it is that the effects are instant. Everyone feels major changes after their first body rolling session. It realigns you, bringing all the parts back to where they are supposed to be.
You suddenly feel “right” in your body. This can take a while even with a regular yoga practice. For some people it may even take years.
The back routine stimulates all the nerve roots along the spine. In turn, these nerve roots stimulate the function of most of our vital organs. The abdominal routines stimulate the organs and glands directly.
Both these forms of stimulation boosts metabolism and encourages lymphatic drainage (which reduces fluid buildup). Putting direct pressure into the digestive organs also helps them function better, so your elimination and digestion improve. All these factors help you lose weight.
Bodyrolling helps break down the negative postural patterns that we develop doing repetitive sports and activities and prevents us from developing new ones. Because it is great for circulation, tone, and flexibility of the muscles it keeps the skeleton structure well aligned, it prevents us from developing restrictions as we age.
I’ve broken this down into a 4 week program. Each week contains 3 videos and works on different areas of the body. It takes a bit of practice so I advise doing one video a day and repeating the next day. You may want to do more, and thats fine, but the more often you repeat the routines the more familiar your body will become to the process and the muscles will release more quickly. I use a ball and a foam roller in the videos.

Body rolling combines a great stretch, like yoga, with a great release like massage. It energizes and relaxes you at the same time, releasing muscles as it tones them giving you a really deep stretch. You do it by rolling over a ball, specific routines follow the natural direction of muscle release. Benefits of body rolling include:
