Continuing Ed: Yamuna Body Rolling
Yamuna Zake, creator of Yamuna Body RollingBy Nicole Rogers
Yamuna Body Rolling ™ (YBR) is named after its creator, Yamuna Zake, who developed the technique about 16 years ago as a way to reach more people with her bodywork practice and theories. Her technique uses a small, firm ball and your own body weight to release and align different areas of the body.
A jack-of-all-trades in the world of bodywork, Yamuna was a certified hatha yoga teacher by the age of 16, and as time went on she incorporated herbology and aromatherapy into her yoga practice. With the birth of her daughter in 1979, Yamuna experienced an injury to her hip. She worked hard and experimented to eventually heal herself and create Yamuna Body Logic – a hands-on treatment. For 30 years, people have flocked to her from all over the world to consult her expertise in solving structural issues.
Yamuna describes YBR as work that, “aligns and reorganizes all the body parts in an anatomically correct way. The body quickly corrects and begins to function with greater range of motion and ease.” She basically translated her hands-on technique into a method that people could use on themselves to correct their own alignment and function. The balls are designed to act the same way her hands would when working on someone. “In the beginning Yamuna Body Rolling literally just mimicked a Yamuna Body Logic session,” says Yamuna. “It has grown to be much more sophisticated. YBR can work almost all the muscles, bones and joints of the body in an extremely detailed way. I believe there is almost nothing you can not work out of your body if you know your anatomy and how to use YBR.”
With rollers and balls abounding in fitness and bodywork lately, I asked Yamuna what makes YBR unique. “What makes this work stand out from other fitness and therapeutic work is that the work begins with direct bone stimulation,” she says. “It works to correct the body anatomically. It stimulates bone, then moves into tendons and then into the body of the muscle. In most areas we work from origin to insertion because this is the way natural movement should ideally occur, except in the feet and hands.” She says tha moving through the body in this systematic way preserves the natural order of the body and stimulates the bones and other soft tissue. “The results are improved bone, muscle and skin quality as well as improved circulation,” says Yamuna.
Yamuna invited me to her New York studio to experience YBR myself. I had a knee injury at the time, and the instructor, Patricia, addressed my knee issue directly, as well as the bodies of the other people in my class. She was extremely knowledgeable about anatomy and gave me a psoas stretch that was deeper than anything I’ve experienced. I can see how YBR could be helpful with those clients who have some sort of issue that is not allowing them to get to the deep work in ...
