March Matness Day 5: Rolling Back (Rolling like a Ball)

Rolling Back (Rolling like a Ball)

 

This exercise is fun.  I teach it to children to make them laugh and smile.  And when I teach it to adults, their inner child comes out. For this exercise,  I want you to think of the stretch and the opposition.  Trying to make your body get as round. Create space in the spine and hips and support that space with your structure.   In the video we have Nicole demonstrating the rolling back exercise.  We used a ball between her chest and knees to help her hold the space and the opposition between upper body and lower body.  

Primary Focus:  Massaging the spine

Secondary Focus:  Stretching the Spine/Pelvis
