Yamuna Body Rolling™ is a revolutionary approach to health and fitness using balls designed exclusively for this practice. Unlike other ball exercises, YBR goes far beyond random movement and stretch. It allows you to work specific muscles in detail, to create suppleness in tight areas and optimize range of motion. It reeducates muscles and stimulates bone, creating positive, permanent changes in the body. YBR works the way a hands-on practitioner works, only using a ball. The ball replaces hands as it moves on muscles to stretch them, dislodge tension and discomfort, increase blood flow, and promote healing.
