Are you tight, tired or aching in your body? Do you get sore after a workout? Is 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”created in 2017 is system that will ease out the tightness the soreness and ache in your body. It will 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.
How does it help?
The aim is to improve tissue fluidity, release tension and stagnation. To increase range of motion, decrease pain and stiffness and 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. 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 as well as 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.
This practice is incorporated into Pilates classes usually on a Monday night class at 6pm.
