Yamuna Body Rolling

Last week some of the Personal Euphoria staff took a Yamuna Body Rolling class with Sharon Sklar. It felt wonderful. Basically for about two hours, she talked us through different ways to roll on a Yamuna ball—an inflated rubber ball with different firmnesses to increase or decrease pressure on a particular part of the body. Yamuna Body Rolling is basically your own personal massage.

We rolled the ball over everything—our glutes, backs, spines, chest, biceps, and hamstrings. Then she took out these half-balls covered in little nubs called foot wakers. My feet died and went to heaven in that moment. I have a new love, and I purchased some, so if you take private classes, you can know you will see these in one of your upcoming sessions.

The body rolling was good, but the feet wakers are great. My feet felt like I was walking on air afterward.

If you ever get a chance to take a workshop with Sharon, I would recommend it. She teaches you to self massage. You know that I like a good massage, and nothing beats having someone else rub you, but when your body needs to be rubbed being able to rub yourself is a highly beneficial skill.
