Yellow Ball Magic: SAVE THE PSOAS

  • Bearfoot Yoga Center 146 E Main St Bay Shore, NY 11706 (map)

Yellow Ball Magic is a fascial fitness class designed to work on the issues you didn’t even know you had. It’s a dynamic, slow practice where we use the Magic Yellow Ball (4 inch, yellow) to access, balance, and unwind the body at the deepest level of fiber and fluid. What looks like a bunch of people lying around on balls is actually what many students reflect to be ‘like the best massage they’ve ever had.' Experience instant pain relief, deep tissue recovery, and profound postural shifts all while gaining a deeper awareness of the inner landscape of your body. 
This class is appropriate for those with aches and pains, injuries, scar tissue, and especially for those of you who think you don’t need it at all!

SAVE THE PSOAS - an indispensable treatment for the long term health of anyone living in an industrialized/western culture, this class targets the deep fibrous structures on the front of the spine (deep to all of your digestive organs.)  Lying face down over the ball, we gently guide the ball to the edge of the Psoas muscle to “pin" it towards the front of the spinal column.  This pressure encourages a release in the deep muscles of the front line, the digestive system, and it reflexively releases the SI joints, pelvis, and lumbar vertebrae.  You’ll be amazed how easy, spacious, and long your hip flexors can feel!  Students report immediate relief from lower back and SI joint pain and significant gains on the ability to fully extend the hip. 

This class is recommended for humans with spines and those that suffer from a desk job, lower back and SI joint pain, headaches/TMJ, restricted hip mobility, restricted breathing, back muscle fatigue, difficulty sleeping, anxiety, poor digestion, pelvic floor issues, scar tissues (healed scars from c-section, hernias, appendix removal, etc), OR if you simply wish to maintain or regain the ability to fully extend your hip.

This is a workshop class, $25/person.
