Save Your Upper Back DVD
THE SAVE YOUR UPPER BACK DVD focuses on the area from shoulder level and up to the scull. This would be your upper thoracic vertebrae and all your cervical vertebrae. This is an area in the body where many people mount their stress and tension causing tightness, restriction and vertebral compression. Maintained tightness over long periods can cause restriction of neck and head movement, pinched nerves which can result in pins and needles, numbness and burning down the arms, and herniated discs.
This DVD offers routines that will keep this area aligned and create a long strong, flexible neck with full range of motion. It will help to decompress the vertebrae and relax the tension build-up.
This DVD uses the gold and black balls and they are not included with the DVD.
The SIDELINE ROUTINE DVD is a powerful routine which offers the most dramatic results of all the Yamuna Body Rolling work. It lengthens and tones both the back and front of the torso at once and is also fabulous for liberating your shoulders and neck. Feel your breath penetrate parts of your torso that you never thought it could reach; increase flexibility; lose inches around your middle; and even grow taller!
YBR Sideline DVD works the body from the side. This means that you are working both the front and back of your body at the same time. You are actually building equal length and strength front, back and sides of you!
As you work your whole side, you free your lower back, elongate your abdominal muscles and once you get up into the armpits, you actually begin to free up shoulder restrictions and begin to work your biceps and triceps. The results are startling! You are actually standing taller, freer, your shoulders are freer and your whole body appears longer, leaner and unrestricted. You actually begin to breath deeper without trying to. This is a great routine for pregnant women and for people who want to create more space between their ribs and hips and get rid of their sagging love handles.
