Yamuna® Body Rolling
Single Day Self Care Immersion
with Meg Whitbread
(12 CE's for LMT's)
Yamuna® Body Rolling (YBR®) is an intelligent self-care modality based on experiential anatomy and yoga principles that allows you to get underneath your compensatory habits and imbalances. The whole body is involved in both the exploration and the re-integration as we focus on a particular area to activate what is underused and reduce the impact from what is overused. Various sized balls help to create space, re-balance muscles and re-align joints so the mis-use or pain pattern doesn’t re-surface. Yamuna® Body Rolling (YBR®) is an organic and integrative self-care practice for creating and maintaining sustainability in your body. Yamuna® techniques are both preventive and rehabilitative. This 12-hour course, developed by Yamuna Zake introduces the basics of YBR® and includes the routines that can keep massage therapists and lay people alike free from injury.
Saturday, October 26
8:15 - 10:30 am Feet & Foundation: We will create space and balance in the pelvis and re-align the hip joints. From here, we will be able to create space and reduce tension in and around the lower back so that you can rediscover the feeling of freedom and stability in the center of the body. Looking at how we walk can reveal much about the potential buoyancy in our joints and our gait reveals much about the relationship between hips and shoulders. We will look at getting impact out of the lower body and get more of a sense of upward lift.
10:30am - 12:45pm Balancing Leg Muscles: Unwinding and lengthening the quadriceps, opening the hamstrings, and activating the inner and outer leg muscles creates a less strained, more efficient working relationship between legs and pelvis so we work toward balancing the large muscle groups of the legs in relation to each other and to the supporting muscles in the hips and pelvis and then reconnect legs and feet.
1:15 - 3:30pm Connecting Pelvis & Spine: We will create space and balance in the pelvis and re-align the hip joints so that this pivotal area of the body is able to support the low back. We will examine the relationship between front and back body and the relationship between the center of the body and the extremities. We will then be able to create space and reduce tension in and around the lower back so that you can rediscover the feeling of freedom and stability in the center of the body.
3:45 - 6pm Neck, Shoulders & Wrists: The last session takes us into the unwinding and re-balancing of the various parts of the shoulder girdle. We will create length between the neck and shoulders to reduce tension in this area of the body. We will also lengthen the muscles of the upper arm, release the grip in the elbow and free up the wrists and hands to help unlock tension in the fingers and reconnect.

Meet the Instructor:
Meg views self-care as an increasingly necessary part of one’s life so that individuals can begin to feel not only in control of but also responsible for their health. She is interested in helping people understand their own habits and patterns as they consistently show up in breathing, movement and behavior. With this information, people can make changes based on their own feedback and experience.
Meg teaches from an anatomically functional and somatic perspective using YBR® , yoga and other spiritual practices as the lens. Her classes are clinic-style–responsive to the group, organic and spontaneous–so that each person in the room gets the personalized information he or she needs.
