Self Massage techniques (aka. Be a Baller)
Now that I've talked a bit about the value of rolling out your tight tissues, here are a few videos for those of you ready to rock and roll. (There are lots of ball-related puns. Sorry). As a Yoga Tune Up® teacher, I like the YTU® balls, but I've also used pinky balls and lacrosse balls in a pinch. Here are some of my favorite roll out places to start.
Feet: whether you've worn heels or dress shoes, or you just ran a few miles, this feels great.
Upper Back: after a day of playing, or in the morning, this is a nice way to start to unwind.
Jaw/TMJ issues: for all of my wind player, singer, night jaw grinding friends out there!
Neck: this is a great sequence for everyone!
