1/5 Target the Legs and Hips - Work the sides of the legs intensely on the IT bands, adductors, and calves. Experience deep outer hip and buttock muscle release. Lengthen both quadriceps and hamstrings. Free hips, iliotibial bands, knees, and unravel leg strain all the way to the feet.
Balls: Either 2 indigo or 2 black, and either pearl or silver
1/12 Neck and Shoulder Stretches - Free the neck, jaw muscles, passive shoulder releases. Allow the ball to target and release chronically held tightness in the shoulders. Using gravity and time, the shoulders relax, the trapezius is melted and the neck relaxes.
Balls: Either 2 indigo or 2 black, and a gold or silver
1/19 Core Strength - Tone the abdominals, back core muscles, buttock, and pelvic floor. Gravity and a sedentary lifestyle can cause abdominal organs to drop into the lower abdomen, weakening it and consequently also the lower back. Lift the organs back into place, release the anterior spine and the psoas muscle, taking pressure out of the low back.
Balls: Either a gold or a silver
1/26 Rib Cage Opening/Breath Work - Create space and freedom in the rib cage on all sides, allowing the lungs the room to expand to capacity. Use a yoga breathing technique and the balls to become aware of the fullness and flexibility of the breath, to support us from the inside out. Helps to increase energy, stamina, and enhance your immune system.
Balls: Either a gold, silver or pearl
2/2 Hands, Wrists, Arms and Shoulders - Relieve stress from repetitive motion. All work that we do contracts hand muscles. Connect the movements at the ends of the muscle chains, the hands, up through the forearm to their source at the shoulders. Great for arthritis, tennis elbow, and carpal tunnel.
Balls: 2 Foot/Hand Wakers, black and/or indigo
2/9 Release the Psoas ~ Systematically release the psoas and iliacus from origin to insertion. Good for back issues, weak or tight hip flexors, intestinal health, adductor stimulation, abdominal toning. Open the leg and arm attachments to feel longer and more spacious.
Balls: 2 indigo or 2 black
2/16 Face Freedom - Repetitive stress and tension over the years causes problems with our sinuses, headaches, TMJ, wrinkles and other challenges for our irreplaceable faces! Stimulate bone, muscle and skin of your face, thereby assisting your facial muscles to relax, bones to be spacious, and skin cells to activate.
Balls: Face Ball Kit purchased from Melora $74 includes 2 balls and a instructional dvd or a softer black will substitute.
2/23 Deeper Exploration of the Hip Joint ~ Focus the black ball deeper into the ball-socket joint to create greater space around the hip. Intensely stimulating bone, releases muscles essential to balance and align the hips, creating power and ease to movement. The anterior part of this routine is extremely important for those who spend alot of time sitting.
