Balls, Soft Rolling & Restorative Movement

                 

 

Over the years, my focus on integration within our structure, has led me to develop "Restorative Movement". This approach to moving with conscious awareness, and sensing our underlying fluid nature has been influenced by my professional dance background, Bonnie Cohen of Body Mind Centering, the fundamentals of the Alexander Technique and the Melt Method developed by Sue Hitzmann.

 

We use an assortment of balls: hard & soft, large & small, along with a softer roller to work with the body's connective tissue, or fascia. Connective tissue surrounds all aspects of the body - including muscles, bones, nerves and organs. Current research shows that connective tissue is a bodywide system that supports, protects and stabilizes. This system is responsive and adaptable.

Stress and dehydration of the connective tissue is often the underlying cause of daily aches and stiffness that leads to chronic pain- adversely impact your posture, even the way you breathe.

If you are planning on taking the class virtual (at home) or on-demand you will need the following:


 

Props Needed:

1) Softer Roller (as compared to a hard Styrofoam roller)

3) A set of small soft balls & a set of hard small balls

To get the most out of this class, I recommend the Melt Hand & Foot Treatment Kit. It will have the right sizes and density:

Or, a less expensive version of, only the soft balls, can be purchased here. If you choose this option, you will only be working with the soft small balls.
