Maintaining a Healthy Back

A unique opportunity to explores body sustainability for maintaining a healthy back. Learn the fundamentals of how to build a long and strong back, maintaining healthy lumbar, thoracic and cervical vertebrae and discs.

Maintaining a Healthy Back - Yamuna Bodyrolling

in South London

As part of our ongoing series of monthly Yamuna bodyrolling (YBR) workshops, this session will explore how to maintain a healthy back.

Bodyrolling is a powerful and profound self-fixing and maintaining tool invented by the extraordinary visionary Yamuna Zake – a master teacher and healer who has dedicated her life to understanding how the body works and to helping others to create positive change in their bodies. It is a practice that everyone can do regardless of age or physical limitations. The system empowers us to maintain our own body structures, thus healing and preventing pain and injury. Fundamentally, it enables us to maintain our bodies, preventing injuries and keeping the body moving freely and without restriction at every age.

If you have ever suffered from back pain and you want to prevent any back discomfort or weakness, this class will help you to

  • correct and maintain a healthy back
  • build a long and strong back, maintaining healthy lumbar, thoracic and cervical vertebrae and discs
  • correctly work the abdominal muscles so they support and protect the spine properly

Using props created by Yamuna, you will be lead through routines which:

  • elongate muscles 
  • release the spine 
  • improve alignment 
  • deepen the breathing 
  • increase relaxation response

The effects are instant and you will experience remarkable changes in your body after just one session. You will also be able to continue the practice at home.

Suitable for all levels, this workshop is highly recommended for anyone who has suffered from back issues of any kind. Similar but better than any massage therapy, bodyrolling is also the ideal compliment to a yoga practice, enabling you to deepen your practice and develop an intuitive understanding of your own anatomy.
