At the time I was suffering with chronic shoulder pain, and although I had been for numerous treatments with Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Physiotherapists and Physical Therapists, nothing was working for me. I was doing all the rehab exercises, but to no avail.. I knew my muscles weren't firing properly.
Having worked as a fitness trainer and Pilates teacher over the past 16 years, you can imagine how frustrating this was for me.
After Dagmar's workshop and getting my own pair of YTU balls, I soon realised that these little guys were the missing link to all training programs. I have worked with foam rollers, medicine balls, tennis and golf ball balls, but none of them have the same effect as the YTU balls. I was soon able to develop my own self care practice that I could do at home whenever my tissues needed some TLC and was able to get into the areas that needed releasing. A lot of the tissues on my left side of my body were very stuck and not allowing my muscles to work in a balanced way - This is why my rehab exercises were not working!!!
Using YTU balls has saved me so much money on expensive treatments, everyone should have a pair and learn how to be in charge of their own body. Being in control of your own tissues is truly amazing.
I am so excited to be hosting the first ever YOGA TUNE UP THERAPY BALL TRAINING at The Pilates Room in May and even more excited about passing it onto my clients. Roll on the 10th of May!!!
