Namaste

By Jennifer Walsh-Rupakheti

I look at you

From my heart

And my heart opens

To see you

Namaste

Your eyes dazzle me

As your heart

Sings through them

Namaste

Your smile wakens me

As your soul

Speaks to me

Namaste

Your beauty captures me

And i forget time

Namaste

You look back at me

Our souls meet

Namaste

Bodyrolling feels fantastic and is great for getting rid of stiffness, aches and pains. To learn how, come along to my next Bodyrolling Workshop 1st October 10-12:30pm at Namaste Yoga Belfast 265A Ormeau Road, BT7 3GG

Bodyrolling combines a great stretch like yoga with a deep tissue massage using the ball. Learn how to roll away stiffness, aches and pains yourself using a ball or foam roller. Leave feeling like you have had a full body massage. Kickstart a new healthy habit you can do for yourself at home or at the gym.

Sometimes we get stiff and sore from working long hours. Perhaps you are spending to much time at your desk or maybe your job is very physical with lots of heavy lifting. Bodyrolling makes fantastic self care as it realigns your body and prevents problems developing due to poor posture or repetitive strain. Great thing is once you have learnt how to roll your body you can do it yourself at home very quickly. I enjoy a bit of body rolling at the end of the day to relax and realign before bed.

If you would like to buy your own ball or foam roller click on this link… https://jennifergreenlees.com/body-rolling/

It makes great body maintenance between massages. Keeps the muscles from getting so tight so you are not just relying on your massage therapist or physio for help. It also improves circulation as it rolls through and tonnes your body and is also great for bone density. The list of benefits are endless!

So come along and have a go or if you have already been before but need a kickstart to get back on the wagon again of rolling every day come along.  All equipment provided. Balls and Foam Rollers are also available for purchase. If you cant make a workshop I also have a fantastic online program 30 days of bodyrolling just 15 mins a day to teach you how to roll away stiffness aches and pains yourself at home. Helps you get into the routine of doing it yourself at home.

Looking forward to getting rolling!
