Meet the balls!
- Gold Ball
The largest in diameter and softest in density makes this the all-purpose ball. Use the gold ball for maximum expansion of the spine and side-lying positions, YBR yoga poses and breathing exercises. Also, this ball’s softer texture makes it the best choice for osteoporosis, fibromyalgia, and post-operative rehabilitation.
- Silver Ball
Slightly smaller in diameter and denser than the Gold ball, this ball is used for full body release. It provides a deep tissue therapy experience. The silver ball details the large muscle groups of the legs, spine and torso and provides a deep weight bearing experience.
- Pearl Ball
With the same texture as the gold ball and smaller in diameter than the silver ball, The Pearl ball creates a more intense detail for the chest, armpit and neck. Its convenient smaller size also makes it excellent for travel and can be used in place of the silver ball.
- The Black Balls
As the smallest diameter, this set of dense balls are used for more precision release throughout the body. Originally designed for the ankles, calves, and knees, the black ball is a powerful tool for bone stimulation and decompression by penetrating deep into the joints. Its smaller size releases the more intricate muscle chains and can be angled close to the bone. Black balls are used in many of the YBR Yoga and Pilates postures.
- The Face Ball
The face ball set includes two balls. One is a smaller hand held ball with a velvety, skin soft texture. The other is a larger ball used to support the back of the head. The two balls work in unison to relieve the effects of repetitive stress and sustained tension on the face. The Yamuna Face Ball method stimulates and aligns bone, activates muscle, increases circulation and smooths out wrinkles. Once you feel the difference in your face when it is relaxed, you will want to incorporate this into a daily self-care routine.
- Foot Wakers
Foot wakers are semi-soft, nubby half-spheres designed for creating flexibility and strength in our hands and feet. Yamuna Hand & Foot Fitness provides sensible solutions that both alleviate pain and prevent it. Hand & Foot Wakers are used to increase circulation, flexibility, range of motion and alignment. When you are ready to work in more detail in the feet you can begin using our foot savers.
- Foot Savers
These plastic half-spheres are smaller and denser than Foot Wakers. An intense and powerful tool, Foot Savers improve gait, alignment, and muscle tone. They stimulate reflexology points, strengthen arches and increase range of motion. As you rehabilitate foot problems your whole body is aligned.
