In this post, we want to share with you what the keystones of Yamuna Body Rolling in Kansas City are, or YBR, special and beneficial. You can try Yamuna body rolling in Olathe, Overland Park, Lawrence, and Kansas City. Below are five key points that separate YBR from other exercises, activities, and even other types of body rolling.
- Breathing During Yamuna Body Rolling
One of the most basic principles of Yamuna body rolling in Overland Park is proper breathing technique. Deep breathing during a YBR session will enable your muscles to relax and release fully, allowing your muscles to press more firmly onto the specialized ball. Symbiotically, the YBR balls actually increase your lung capacity and ability to breathe deeply, specifically as you work muscles near your rib cage, upper arms, chest, and upper torso.
By focusing on breathing and sending breath to the specific areas where you are focusing the rolling, you will receive the maximum benefit from the myofascial relief therapy. In Kansas City, Yamuna body rolling is becoming more widely recognized as a form of both deep muscle therapy and exercise.
- Roll Along the Path of the Muscle
Yamuna body rolling in either Lawrence or the Kansas City Metro area will always use the same technique. When you roll a muscle, you follow a very definitive path. Each muscle is connected to the bone at each end by tendons. As you roll, you will follow a path beginning at the bone where the muscle originates. You will continue to roll through the tendon, into the muscle, through the tendon at the other end, and finally ending at the bone where the muscle reinserts and ends.
Your fascia, which is a type of connective tissue that encloses and separates muscles and internal organs, can become dry, brittle, and weak over time. This can create adhesions and keep your muscles from functioning properly. Yamuna body rolling stimulates and helps hydrate muscles and fascia, making YBR an extremely effective myofascial release therapy in Lawrence and Kansas City.
- Different YBR Balls
The creators of Yamuna body rolling have spent many years, decades even, working on the design of the variously specialized balls used in Yamuna body rolling in Lawrence and the Kansas City metro area. They vary in size, anywhere from 4 inches to 10 inches, and in density. For beginners, a large, softball will provide easy, gentle therapy. As you become more adept at Yamuna body rolling and desire a more intense therapy, decreasing the size of the ball and/or increasing the density can help you reach the desired result.
These YBR balls are actually one of the major differences between Yauma body rolling and other types of rolling, for example, foam rolling. Yamuna body rolling works with the flow of your body, while foam rollers tend to work against and can even cause your body to tense with pain or stress. YBR balls allow you to control the pressure and get the myofascial release therapy you need.
- Stimulate Bone
While bone is often considered hard and rigid, it is actually full of spongy, soft tissue called bone marrow. While it is true the bones are hard and strong, they are also flexible and able to withstand strain and stress. However, as we age, the bone becomes more stiff, rigid, and brittle. This can also tighten tendons and cause restriction of movement in joints.
Fortunately, centers that specialize in Yamuna body rolling in Olathe and the surrounding areas can help. As we mentioned earlier, YBR rolling begins in the bone and rolls through the tendon and the muscle. By rolling the bone first, you are allowing the entire muscle system—bone, tendons, muscle—to become more pliable and hydrated, thus increasing the overall health of your body, bones and all.
- The Logic of The Body
Another basis of Yamuna body rolling is that it is logical and based on your body’s physiology. Below are some basic logical reasonings behind YBR therapy:
- Work superficial muscles first, then deeper muscles
- Start by working large muscles, then work smaller muscles
- Work both sides of the body evenly
- Start in the center of the body and work outwards
