07 Mar Therapy Ball Review (featured on YogaOutlet.com)
@livefreewarrior here, reviewing a variety of therapy balls to incorporate into your practice.
They’ve become one of my favorite little tools to heal my own body whenever I have extra aches and pains from practicing, poor posture, or just daily living taking its toll on my 5’7” frame.
Balls are balls, right? Why do we need special balls to use on our body? Can’t I just grab a tennis ball and start rolling? Well, you can, but you’ll gain the greatest benefit by using the ball that’s the proper size and “squishy-ness” to massage out your muscles. Think of a mattress: sure, you can sleep on anything if you had to, but having the right firmness and support will give you a better night’s sleep.
What’s my overall favorite? The Yoga TuneUp Therapy Ball Kit w/Tote. Super versatile, provides a solid squish, easy to take with you, and my personal favorite that I used when filming a recent yoga therapy series that I’ll be sharing this upcoming first quarter of 2018 on ways to heal your body through all-levels movement.
