A gentle release of the stuck stress through the upper back caused by postural habits, most occupations and even sports! This will increase range of motion, release short tight muscles of the chest and encourage healthy rotation without misuse of the shoulder. Modifications are provided for those with shoulder issues and regular use of this release may help relieve tension throughout the neck, shoulder and even lower back. Move nice and slowly throughout and take the time to compare your sides before repeating on the other side.
A release of tension that can cause pain in the low back including a very gentle SIJ release to start with. Safety first as always – the way you move on and off the roller, position on the roller as well as maintaining muscular support of the low back during the movements is just as important as the releases themselves. Remember it is never safe to roll your low back. Lower levels are offered initially followed by progressions which are optional. Take a moment to lie on your back and assess how you feel both before and after the release so you will become aware of how effective this release is for you.
A gentle release of what can be a very uncomfortable area. Calves are notoriously tight and have a significant effect on how efficiently we are able to move. A very important release to ensure optimal function and alignment. This release focuses on the stuck stress in the calves with options to progress for those who feel that it is appropriate and tolerable to do so. This is a great release to do daily as a standalone sequence or use it prior to stretching to optimise the effectiveness of work you may already be doing.
