Yoga Tune Up®

What is Yoga Tune Up® and How Can it Help You?

I have seen firsthand how pain and neuromuscular dysfunction can be drastically improved with Yoga Tune Up®. The method sensitively accommodates each individual's personal needs. This is not a cookie cutter approach, but an incredibly intelligent rehabilitative format.

Yoga Tune Up® is a unique health and fitness crossover program designed to ease pain, improve posture, reclaim mobility and enhance range of motion.   

Yoga Tune Up® (also called YTU or Physio Tune Up®) combines Yoga, Trigger Point Self-Massage, Myofascial Release, Joint Stabilization Exercises, Inner Core Work and Diaphragmatic Deployment in a way that heals damaged muscle tissue, increases overall strength, and bolsters the immune system.   

Yoga Tune Up® is currently practiced all over the world at yoga studios, fitness facilities and retreat centers. Using a distinctive set of exercises, poses and specialized props and techniques, Yoga Tune Up® playfully moves you through a safe, effective workout with pain relief methods that leave you (regardless of age, experience or activity level) feeling better, stronger, happier, and more relaxed!

How does Yoga Tune Up differ from yoga or fitness?

  • It is an anatomy-based practice designed for people of all fitness levels who “use, misuse and abuse” their bodies.
  • It emphasizes the importance of the diaphragm, inner core, spinal stabilization, secondary muscle recruitment and increased range of motion practices.
  • Yoga Tune Up® utilizes it’s signature Therapy Balls for self-directed myofascial manipulation to prevent injuries and vastly improve circulation, nerve conduction and muscle recovery rates.
  • Yoga Tune Up® helps us to locate our “Body Blind Spots”, greatly improving proprioception, body awareness and hence, our ability to move and live better in our bodies.
  • YTU is both challenging and restorative:  It improves balance and flexibility, relieves painful injuries, improves breath, and reduces stress.
  • Yoga Tune Up® brings a practical yoga philosophy into the nuts and bolts of healthy movement, challenging the body from every conceivable angle until breakthroughs occur – literally changing the nature of the tissues in the area being addressed.

What are Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Balls?

The Yoga Tune Up® Therapy Ball System provides targeted self-massage trigger point therapy by using specially designed high grip rubber balls and focused movement routines that help penetrate through layers of skin and muscle to massage deeply into your high tension areas.  This Myofascial manipulation empowers students to self-soothe and self massage so they can effectively prevent injuries by improving circulation, nerve conduction and muscle recovery rates.
