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.

Hi! I’m Erin and my passion in life is helping others feel better by helping them get out of their own head. So much of our relationship to food and fitness is a reflection of deeply rooted beliefs that were imprinted on us at a very early age. These beliefs drive all sorts of behaviors, many of which are not good for our physical or mental health. I know this first-hand. As a former calorie-counting cardio queen I played right into all the toxic messages about what it meant to be “healthy”. That all changed when I hit rock bottom. Since leaving my corporate career in 2009 I have been fully committed to shifting the narrative and helping people experience better physical health by unpacking unhealthy beliefs. My biggest inspiration are my two young daughters, who I hope to raise in a household that openly illuminates and addresses the misinformation instead of adopting it.
