Core Matter: Yamuna® Body Rolling & Pilates Essentials

With Namchi Bazar

May 12 - 16, 2021

Sign-up to be notified when registration opens for this 2021 program.


Release pain and restrictions in your back, shoulders, neck, hips, legs, and feet for a total body awakening and feel-good rejuvenation.

Yamuna® Body Rolling is a workout, a massage, and a whole body adjustment rolled into one. YBR uses various sizes of specially designed balls to improve alignment, enhance bone quality, and create a stronger, longer, and leaner body. An empowering healing practice that is beneficial on its own or as a compliment to your other fitness routines. Combining the strength and toning effects of exercise with the releasing effects of massage, YBR makes space in your joints and tissue, helps to heal and prevent injury, and offsets the stress of vigorous exercise and repetitive movements. YBR creates immediate tone and lift of abdominal muscles along with energizing postural awareness and strength.

The Pilates Method elongates and strengthens, improving muscle elasticity and joint mobility. The practice of Pilates helps to create a deep dialogue between body and mind building a system of neuromuscular patterns that facilitate an attention to postural alignment as well as core and breath support. Control of the core is achieved by integrating the trunk, pelvis and shoulder girdle.  By emphasizing correct spinal and pelvic alignment, concentration on smooth, flowing movement, Pilates helps to economize exertion and correct structural imbalances.  Pilates accommodates all types of trainers from beginners to athletes in regards to injury prevention and rehabilitation.

Together, these two modalities support you to access your core matter, let go of unproductive holding patterns, and activate your centre with precise intention. Develop powerful, effective body-wellness routines that are easy to incorporate into your home practice. Everybody is welcome regardless of age, experience, or injury.

Namchi’s classes have been a life line for me. She holds space for powerful physical work and her classes are consistently fun, informative, and rejuvenating. I have noticed lasting change in my body since I began working with her, specifically regarding chronic back pain that I have had for years. Thank you for helping my body get stronger Namchi! – Hayley Newell, past participant
