October's Equipment feature: Foam Roller

A love…hate relationship in the making.

We use these wonderful tools to challenge our balance and core stability. By adding an unstable surface you automatically recruit the core stabilizers to keep you from falling off!!!! The core stabilizers support you when you’re standing tall, walking, running and even sitting. They help improve your posture and protect your spine. Not only can you use the roller to improve your posture but many use the roller for myofascial release…self massage. Ask Carolyn how she encourages her massage clients to use the roller for just that. Enjoy using the roller in creative ways this month in your classes and also in your home practice.
