Thanks for the reply!

These videos sound very good.

Is the workout set to music?

I though I would re-print my body rolling class report:

"Body Rolling - Yamuna Zake, MA
http://www.yamunabodyrolling.com/

Yamuna was an excellent and fun instructor (beautiful, too!). Very warm and really knows her stuff. The class is about laying over a hard ball and rolling around the tight spots. It was kind of like self-Rolfing. She explained that the ball rolling can break up scar tissues and release muscles. The woman next to me was groaning, panting and grunting so much I wanted to ask her if she needed a cigarette after it was over."

Ok, this is probably a stupid question, but which 49.99 kit is better -- the one from Allaboutmassagers, or the one from Yamuna?

Also, do they ship quickly?

www.fitball.com or Ball Dynamics International has what they call Body Therapy. I ordered it and I got several size balls and a dvd. I really like the dvd. It seems to be beautifully done. It seems to be covering the entire body yet the whole package was so much cheaper than the Yamuna Body Rolling balls and videos. I actually purchased both, I like the Body Therapy dvd better than the Body Rolling videos.

Thanks, Mary.

For those doing this, how do you deal with the balls pulling at your hair/clothes? That was a big problem for me when I tried a similar program some time ago. I'd like to try it again if there's a simple solution. (No, I won't do it nude or shave my head )

Wow, I ordered the Yamuna kit from allaboutmassagers yesterday and it has already shipped and should be delivered tomorrow! (I'm in California, they're in Oregon). I ordered the book from Amazon yesterday and it has shipped too. Very cool! I'll have to check out the Ball Dynamics one as well...

Is it fairly easy to figure out what to do with the movement and ball? I have so much trouble with yoga via a tape or DVD, I just don't enjoy it. But the Body Rolling looks very interesting and I'd love to give it a try.

Thanks,

Mary (Marie Aline), thanks for the link to Fitball.com. I am definitely going to order some stuff!!!Merry Christmas to me!!!

Mary (Agilejacks)- it's not anything like yoga. You sit on the ball and then roll it either down your leg or up your spine very, very slowly, stopping as you go and "sinking" into the ball to release your muscles. It's more like a massage, it's a little bit active but fairly passive in that you are relaxing and stopping.

Annie: I put my hair in a ponytail but haven't found that the ball pulls on anything. Yamuna does recommend wearing clothing so that the ball doesn't pull at your skin or any body hair.

Susan: I liked the $49.99 kit at Allaboutmassagers better, however, maybe we should check out the Fitball ones and see what they're all about.

BTW - I did the back tape again last night and it was just as wonderful. I can't wait to try the Fitball set too!
