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
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.
