Yamuna Body Rolling at Pilates on Fifth! – an energizing and relaxing workout that focuses on
· creating optimal space in the body
· increasing the range of motion around joints
· stimulating bone
· re-aligning body structure to optimize functionality
Using specially designed Yamuna balls of various sizes and textures, the systematic routines elongate and tone muscles, free up musculoskeletal tension and discomfort, increase blood flow and lung capacity, and promote healing from everyday wear and tear. Using specific balls for specific routines makes it possible to work muscles in detail from origin to insertion. The result is a self-massage that uses your own body weight and the traction from the balls to release tight areas and increase your 360 degree body awareness.
The work in Pilates privates or Pilates classes can easily be integrated into any other activity that you do. You’ll see how your overall performance will improve! If you have old or new injuries to nurture, Yamuna Body Rolling at Pilates on Fifth will offer you resources to support recovery.
A Yamuna Body Rolling class or workout will be a great complement to your Pilates privates or group Pilates classes at Pilates on Fifth.
