Yoga Tune Up®

 

Yoga Tune Up® is a movement practice I discovered thanks to a friend and fellow movement teacher just before she went through the training. She had these amazing pilable, grippy rubber balls that came in a tote of two, aka the Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls. As a long time fan of the foam roller, I was instantly hooked on these gentle, yet precise self-massage tool. It took another year but when Jill Miller, the founder of Yoga Tune Up® came back to San Francisco, I didn't hesitate to sign up for my Level 1 Certification. And low and behold, I quickly learned that this practice was so much more than kneading a couple of rubber balls. It is a thoughtful, playful, challenging, therapeutic practice that helps eradicate pain, improve posture, and enhance performance. The 'Three P's," as Jill Miller calls them. My teaching and my understanding of the body and movement hasn't been the same since.
