Rolling. Self-massage. Myofascial release. There are various terms for what we do in our Recharge format: use Yoga Tune Up Therapy balls to release tension from muscles, work out knots or sticky spots, and help the body move better.
As part of our celebration of mobility this March, Alkalign Unplugged interviews Jill Miller, co-founder of Tune Up Fitness Worldwide and creator of the self-care fitness formats Yoga Tune Up® and The Roll Model® Method. Listen to the podcast, and consider these reasons you should incorporate rolling into your life:
MOBILITY: Research shows that mobility is as fundamental to your fitness as strength and cardiovascular health. Rolling allows you to access and release almost every part of your body, which will increase your mobility, blood flow, circulation, and joint function.
MINDFULNESS: Learning by doing is HUGE, so follow these 3 simple steps to increase your mind–body connection: place the ball, mobilize the joint, and pay attention to how things are connected.
PAIN MANAGEMENT & PREVENTION: Putting a ball somewhere on the body is eye-opening because you very often highlight a “blind spot,” or an area that you had no idea was tight or stiff. This is your chance to work on it before it becomes a bigger issue that adversely impacts your life.
