Well, it’s official! I attended The Science of Rolling, Ball Sequencing & Innovation, turned in the homework and took the final. I am now a Certified Roll Model® Method Practitioner! What does this mean, you ask? It means that I can guide you through some really amazing self-myofascial sessions that will leave you feeling more relaxed, taller, and more attuned to your body.
One of my homework assignments was to create a 5 minute video where I teach all the rolling techniques. The video is below. This was our first shot, and it was chilly and overcast, so I called it good. I learned a lot that I will incorporate into video #2, if/when we make it! The video will give you a general idea of what I mean when I say either “ball-rolling” or “self-myofascial release.” This sequence will also help relieve tightness in the ankles and knees (great for runners!!).

Basically you use the grippy, pliable Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls to lengthen muscles, relieve tightness and tension, hydrate tissues, and just generally make you feel better in your body.
I have been teaching these techniques at a yoga studio, private club, in private lessons, and in corporate yoga classes, and everyone falls in love with the balls after their first session. It is unbelievable how much change you can effect in the body with a few minutes of strategic rolling. Self care is the best form of health care!
