“Slow Down Sundays” Workshop
Life’s too short to feel less than amazing! Learn the magic that is Yamuna® Body Rolling in this feel-good workshop. A combination of exercise, massage and self-care, we learn the fundamentals of utilizing 4-10 inch YBR® Body Rolling Balls, our breath, our body weight and gravity to systematically unwind and heal our entire body, from the inside out. YBR® stretches muscle from where they attach at the bone throughout their entire length, promotes deep relaxation, stimulates bone growth and promotes bone health. It also frees restrictions, increases circulation and creates space within our structure so we can move the way we were intended: pain free! You will walk away from this workshop brighter, lighter, taller and more grounded. In addition, you will learn the techniques to take this powerful self-care exercise with you EVERYWHERE!
Exercises are done on the floor. Please wear clothes that are close fitting as we will be rolling and sometimes bulky clothes get caught up. YBR® Balls are provided for the workshop and discounts are applied to registration fee if you bring your own to class.
Better BodyWork with the BodyCushions®
This 8 hour Continuing Education NCBTMB Approved Course is designed to elevate your practice, set you apart from the competition and teach you the skills you need to prolong your career and create a loyal (and comfortable!) clientele. Master positioning techniques and draping skills: prone, supine, side-lying and pregnancy. Your work will take on new dimensions as you learn how to access muscles and joint mobility unable to be applied while on a flat surface. Discover through demonstration and hands-on application the difference the use of bodyCushions can make on your body mechanics as a practitioner. Working with a client in a supported, neutral position allows you to do greater therapeutic work at a fraction of your energy! Humans are NOT flat! So why should we be expected to relax on flat tables? Integrate this body support system into your practice and notice results immediately; not just in your clients, but in you as well. A perfect solution for: massage therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, physical therapists, even tattoo artists!

YBR® Self-Care Techniques for Massage Therapists
This 12 hour Continuing Education NCBTMB Approved Course introduces the basics of Yamuna® Body Rolling (YBR®), a practical, powerful system that can keep massage therapists free from injury. Designed with the bodyworker’s “hotspots” in mind, you will learn invaluable self-care techniques that will keep you in optimal health for doing what you do best, taking care of others. Topics covered in the workshop include: breath work, foot fitness, aligning the femurs & thigh muscles, pelvis & hip integrity & alignment, decompressing and stabilizing the lumbar spine, the rib cage, the back & sides of the body and of course, the hands & wrists!
YBR® for Massage Therapists focuses on:
- Self-assessment to determine which areas of the body are subject to too much impact and wear and tear
- Aligning the bones in every area of the body, then aligning the muscles to the bones, thus keeping the body strong and avoiding breakdowns
- Assessing the massage therapist’s working position; determining whether it is optimal for the therapist and finding more efficient and sustainable ways to position the body
- Using YBR® as a practice tool to prevent and heal injuries and correct unhealthy work positions, so that the body remains properly aligned while working
- Determining which routines will best prevent habitual work patterns from settling in and becoming calcified
Workshop Investment includes the Educational Manual and the YBR Massage Therapist Kit that includes the Gold Ball, black balls, Foot Wakers & pump. Please note that this training does not permit therapists to teach the training to others and is not part of the Yamuna® Body Rolling training program.
