In my last post, we brought the slip and slide back to the abdominal layers using the Coregeous Ball in order to give the diaphragm a chance to release from the front. Now let’s talk to the back. Try this Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Ball Massage with Dr. Kelly Starrett of MobilityWod to free up the diaphragm’s partners on the back and between the ribs to further prepare the canvas so to speak.
Then we’ll be more ready to toughen it, broaden it, and soften it as it synergies with the orgy of tissues all around. (More on that later!)
Louis's love of yoga emerged in the 1990s after receiving a copy of B.K.S. Iyengar’s Light on Yoga. After pledging to learn all 202 poses by himself, he injured his back and sought tutelage at Julie Lawrence’s Iyengar Studio in Portland, Oregon, where he learned to cool his fire and practice with impeccable alignment. In the Bay Area, he began studying with Master Iyengar Instructor Ben Thomas, who mentored him during his teacher training at Avalon Art and Yoga and taught him how to breathe. Under the guidance of both Jill Miller’s Yoga Tune Up and Master Teacher and Sanskrit scholar Anirudh Shastri, Louis weds the most recent research from physical therapy, physiology, and neuroscience with the rich tradition of Hatha Yoga practiced in North India.
