Why You Should Put YAMUNA in Your Life
A Whole New Level of Body Comfort
“After the first class, my knee pain was gone. After the second, I found my balance again.” TW, 70
We all want to feel great, look good, and age gracefully, doing many of the things we’ve always enjoyed in life. We do not hope for issues like knee replacements, tears, or chronic pain, yet they often develop, and many have come to think of them as facts of life.
But they aren’t and definitely don’t have to be!
Yamuna® is a compendium of practices – from head to toe – that offers a brand new approach to body care. It’s accessible to everyone, at any age, in any state of fitness or lack thereof. It completely raises the bar of what it means to be strong, vital, and at ease – all at once – as our bodies respond to it so fast. And it truly offers us the option for life-long fluidity and energy.
The secret of Yamuna bodywork is that it frees the myofascial and energy lines in the body and promotes healthy bone. In fact, much of the pain people feel is myofascial (or connective tissue) pain, not the pain of some specific muscle.
As well, decades of the fitness craze have sacrificed flexibility in the quest for strength, creating stiffness and compression. This has caused more venues for repetitive stress – even in the gentle arts – because most of us are misaligned somewhere, including the feet.
Join me in this unparalleled practice that taps into the innate and deep intelligence of the body to realign, strengthen, and release tension and stress.
“I have been attending weekly classes with Nikki Jordan’s for over 3 years. I highly recommend her as an instructor. She is one of a kind! Nikki’s openness, compassion and intuitive sensibility set her apart from other teachers. Her ability to forge meaningful connection with her students and create an environment of acceptance and healing makes it a pleasure to attend her classes and work with her. She brings a sense of lightness and playfulness to this very intense work and makes it a joy to participate in her offerings.” MF, Lafayette CA
Yamuna® Body Rolling
Yamuna Body Rolling will give you a completely new sense of your body: what it can do, and how it can feel. Even five minutes on the ball will raise the bar of what it means to feel at ease, and strong at the same time. YBR® combines the release of deep tissue (myofascial) massage with bone stimulation and a workout. It offers a new, fast, unparalleled way to fitness: de-stressing, decompressing, realigning, and giving strength and tone at once.The secret to YBR is that Yamuna’s specifically engineered balls apply traction that frees connective tissue (myofascia), re-educates muscles and tendons to fully release, de-codes negative holding patterns, opens the breath, and improves circulation, energy, and nerve function. Bone is stimulated to reverse the impact it has sustained over time from repetitive activities, and bone health affects the rest of the body.
YBR allows us to actually feel the basis of many healing therapies—the vertical integration of the body. On the ball, you discover how impact, patterns, and space in one area of your body create the same in completely different parts. And it’s individual in all of us.
YBR is simple and original, and there are routines from head to toe: easy full body routines, area routines for specific problems, or personally designed routines for your own specific issues. All are focused on keeping your body buoyant, aligned and strong, your breath open, and your energy flowing, well into your golden years.
Join me in this practice with fast, cumulative results. Do a full practice or just a few minutes – it doesn’t matter. Do it alone for fitness, or add it to your existing program, as YBR and all Yamuna’s modalities profoundly enhance any form of fitness or therapeutic activity.
“My lower body was so tight that it hurt to walk, especially around my knees. I’d been a fairly active person, but walking even a few blocks was painful. And hills were excruciating. After 3 private sessions with Nikki focusing on my feet, hips, legs and knees, the pain began to lessen, and after practicing on my own and taking a few of her classes I am now pain free. Nikki has given me back my mobility. Thanks Nikki!”Brian
Yamuna® Foot Fitness
Most of us are in the dark about our feet. We lock them up in shoes all day, doing little for them when we let them out. Then we expect them to be there for us – happy and ready to get up and go. We seem to care for them only when they hurt.
Instead, flat feet get fancy shoes and orthotics, essentially crutches that don’t teach our feet change. Bunions get hidden or shaved, but rarely do we alter the habits that deformed these bones.
Sore feet get rubbed when they hurt “because we’ve been on them all day,” but we don’t understand the 33 joints in each foot are all supposed to articulate easily and glide in movement. Sometimes, there is surgery. Rigid scar tissue develops, and we wonder why problems crop up elsewhere.
Yamuna Foot Fitness has changed all this – simple education and tools for happy, flexible feet. YFF is a combination treatment: foot reflexology, massage, a chiropractic adjustment, and energy work, all in one.
Hammer toes can now relax, high arches too. Plantar fasciitis is relieved. Flat feet or fallen arches can rise again. Morton’s Neuromas get their space back. Bunions find a new shape. Bones decompress. And you actually feel what it means to stand UP: tall, balanced, lighter.
Only five minutes a day will change the way you walk, run, and stand. You’ll see your hips, legs, and back improve as well. Fix your feet and do what you wish, in any shoe you want! What a relief.
Join me for Yamuna Foot Fitness and put the spring back in your step with this simple, inexpensive system that travels – easily.
Yamuna® Face Ball
A natural face lift … and total body, mind, spirit relaxation
WOW! I definitely noticed relaxation throughout my face all day … and the next morning I was so upbeat!Katy, Teacher, Mom
Psychologists tell us beauty comes from within – that our attitude and thoughts about ourselves define what people see. The beauty industry tells us that age and exposure to the sun and pollution are key culprits in our looks.
While these are not untrue,Yamuna believe repetitive stress and injury have more to do with how your face looks and feels. We often scowl as we concentrate, clench our jaw and grind our teeth with stress, raise our brow, squint at the computer or sun, contort in anger, or have compression patterns from injury, even years old.
These forces etch themselves on our face, pulling facial tissue and cranial bones. They lead to chronic challenges such as headaches, migraines, TMJ, hearing loss, poor sleep, and degrading eyesight. Add in sagging of muscles from bone loss and the drop of our neck and head as we age, and it’s not what we hope for.
Yamuna Face Ball gives us a proactive, natural solution, instead of surgery, threading or Botox. With specifically designed Yamuna balls, we stimulate bone and muscle. Compression patterns are relieved. The skin lifts once again. And circulation improves, delivering more oxygen to the skin, combating the elements and enhancing vitality.
As well, our whole body – not just our face – finds it’s natural order. The body is a vertically integrated organism, and as the face relaxes, our body feels more free and open, and our breath deeper. It gave me full Lotus Pose in one month, after 15 years of trying.
Join me in this unparalleled practice of opening body, mind, and spirit…through the face.
I wish I would have started this work five years ago when I was “only” in my mid-fifties. My face has become softer looking and my favorite result is that I know my face better now at the structural level … I’m very certain that from here on the aging process is going to be less radical because of the bone stimulation, blood circulation and skin toning … and the time spent nightly just on my face, relaxes my whole body.
