Are you tight, tired or aching in your body? Do you get sore after a workout? Whether your body is aching and stiff from a hard exercise workout or being in a fixed posture at work or doing repetitive movements daily.
“The Yin Roller Method” is system that will ease out the tightness the soreness and ache in your body and make you feel relaxed and calmer mentally, physically and emotionally .
This is a system of sweeping, rocking, applying pressure with the roller across your muscles and fascia. Positioning into yin yoga stretches applying tension to the tendons, ligaments and joints then rebounding/resting with a focussed breath into sensory awareness.
The aim is to improve tissue fluidity, release tension and stagnation, increase range of motion, decrease pain and stiffness, improve oxygen flow to tissues as well as help improve sleep and increase hydration of the fascia and create a healthier body, relaxation and calmness. I do know that, You will become very relaxed!
It gives you the ability to control your healing and recovery process by applying compression and tension in precise locations, because only you can feel exactly what is happening in your body.
It is most beneficial to those who regularly and rigorously use their body as well as those who have restricted body movement or poor posture.
This can include:
- Body builders, weight trainers or high-impact exercisers
- Pilates and yoga students
- Dancers and sportspeople
- People in physical work roles – building, hospitality, drivers.
- Office workers – at desks, working long hours on computers
This method utilises research and study on foam rollers, yin yoga, fascia trains, connective tissue, bones, joints, the lymphatic, the circulatory and the nervous systems well as student feedback. I have been using foam rollers in my Pilates and private sessions for over 12 years. My 4 week roller courses have constantly filled so have recent workshops.
The goal to any corrective or recovery technique is to get you back to the point of normal functioning and flexibility, as if nothing was ever wrong.
Vitalitymoves will run three 90 minute sessions teaching you how to foam roll, stretch and rebound to rest and restore your whole body.
The sessions include a PDF emailed to you of all the exercises so you can continue your practice at home.

My hip pain has now almost disappeared
I have also undertaken a four-week foam roller exercise class with Michelle, and I am so glad that I did as Michelle has opened up a whole new world of body massage that can be done in your own home. Having learnt how to “massage” your body all over, I am pleased to say that my hip pain has now almost disappeared. With daily foam roller exercise I anticipate that it won’t be long before I can actually forget that I even had hip surgery.
Michelle has a wonderful ability to remember her client’s ailments, whether it be a sore shoulder, sore back, etcetera, she always makes sure that she adjusts people’s exercises accordingly. Every class I have attended has been informative and fun.
I really enjoyed the Yin Roller Workshop and I admire your passion for the human body and well-being – Mia
