Event Details

Tight neck and shoulders from typing on the computer all day? No one around to give you that shoulder rub you deserve?

Emotionally aching for touch or physically aching from sitting too long?

What if the best masseuse in town was you and a pair of balls?

Join well-being expert Emiliya Zhivotovskaya as she teaches you how to give yourself a full body massage. Turn the Coronavirus Pandemic into an opportunity to learn self-care strategies that will not only help you cope with what we’re facing on a day to day basis but teach you self-care tools that will last you a lifetime.

All you need is 2 balls and room to roll around on the floor (or against a wall). Ideally, the balls would be massage balls (see link below) but tennis balls can do just fine. Don’t have a ball? I’ll show you how to use a can of soup. Don’t have either? We’ll use your knuckles. Resilience is all about being resourceful!

Looking forward to helping you learn to take great care of yourself, as we all take great care of each other!

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Which balls should I use?
A: We recommend YogaTune Up Balls but again, any ball or surface that rolls can work, including cans. (If you’re drinking your sorrows away… you can repurpose that wine bottle ;-)!

Q: I have foam rollers and other massage toys, can I use those?
A: We’ll be working primarily with balls as there are places foam rollers can’t reach. But it can’t hurt to have around.

Q: I have injuries, can I participate?
A: Yes. There will be too many people on the line to give individualized attention. We will try to offer as many modifications as possible and will guide you on the difference between good and bad pain. However, we ask you to take care of yourself as this is not intended to replace medical advice and if you question your capacity to participate in gentle stretches and palpation of your tissue, please consult a medical specialist.

Q: Do I need a yoga mat?
A: Mats are great as they’ll give you a little cushion. So if you have one, awesome. If you don’t, no worries. The good ‘ol floor will have your back, lol. You can use a blanket or towel under you, but our experience is that they tend to roll with you when you roll and the floor is better. 🙂
