Bodyrolling Masterclass with Yamuna Zake

in South London

It is a great honour for us to welcome back world renowned Yamuna Zake to the Shala. This is a unique opportunity to practice Bodyrolling with it's founder and innovator, Yamuna Zake, who rarely offers public masterclasses in London. Yamuna is truly a visionary and an extraordinary master teacher of body sustainability. Her unique Bodyrolling system has evolved into a global network of teachers and practitioners.

Bodyrolling is a complimentary health system, which perfectly compliments yoga, empowering us to maintain our own body structures, thus healing and preventing pain, illness and injury. The system teaches us to reorganise and improve our own anatomy, It is a powerful and profound self-fixing and maintaining tool that everyone can do regardless of age or physical limitations.

Fundamentally, the system enables us to:

  • maintain our bodies, preventing injuries, and keeping the body moving freely and without restriction at every age 
  • improve circulation and organ function 
  • keep nerve roots of the spine activated and metabolically strong 
  • keep the bone healthy and young to maintain the general health and well being of the body

This YBR® whole body workshop, taught by Yamuna herself, organises the body, bringing all the parts back to working the way they should and can be. The commonly accepted belief that as you get older you get stiffer and lose mobility and can no longer do the things you used to is not part of Yamuna’s belief system. Yamuna believes everyone should be able to achieve his/her personal best at every age. 

Using props created by Yamuna, you will be lead through routines taking you through the entire body: 

  • elongating muscles 
  • releasing the spine 
  • improving alignment 
  • deepening the breathing 
  • increasing relaxation response

The effects are instant and you will experience remarkable changes in your body after just one session. Similar but better than any deep massage, Bodyrolling is the ideal compliment to a yoga practice, enabling you to deepen your practice, open up restricted areas, create space and develop an intuitive understanding of your own anatomy. 

Suitable for all levels, this is a workshop definitely not to be missed.
