Learn the Yamuna method of body rolling, which combines massage, stretching and strengthening from certified trainer Patti Reed, of Intuitive Movement, in Naples. The certified American Council of Exercise personal trainer and licensed massage therapist is offering an initial free class for newcomers at group sessions from 9 to 10 a.m. on Thursdays, at Arthur Murray Dance Center (AMDC). She also teaches private sessions by appointment.
Rubber and foam balls of varied sizes, textures and pressures are used on and along specific body areas to improve strength, balance, flexibility and lung capacity. The method also helps decrease tension, minor aches and pains, congestion, adhesions and scar tissue.
“You get a great workout, while releasing stress by maintaining a position and also moving,” Reed explains. “You end up being more empowered—understanding more and how to deal with pain in the future.”
