SARAH BELLAGAMBA

YOGA, YAMUNA BODY ROLLING.

A native of France, Sarah Bellagamba is a professional dancer, Vinyasa yoga instructor and Yamuna body rolling practitioner. Her dance career has taken her all around the world, to perform, teach and choreograph and inspired her to study anatomy and many different body conditioning techniques for movement in order to prevent injuries, build more strength and increase her range of motion.

Her Vinyasa Flow class is meant to do just that : teach you tools to keep your body moving and injury-free. This class will help you create space in your body, linking movement to your breath, and will leave you recharged and energized.

YAMUNA BODY ROLLING

Looking for a new way to enhance your well-being and help you sustain a healthy, vibrant, and stress-free body?

Try YAMUNA BODY ROLLING

Unlike other ball exercises, Yamuna Body Rolling goes far beyond random movement and stretch. Based on anatomy and body logic these series of routines, created over 20 years ago by internationally-acclaimed therapist and Yoga instructor Yamuna Zake, allow you to work specific muscles in detail to create suppleness in tight areas, realign bones and joints, and optimize range of motion.

Over the years, the Yamuna Body Rolling practice has earned respect from chiropractors, physical therapists, Yoga, Pilates and Gyrotonic instructors, massage therapists, bodyworkers, fitness trainers and dance teachers.

BALL

You use your body weight to sink into the 6 to 10-inch inflatable balls designed exclusively for Body Rolling so they become the skilled hands of a therapist. You choose the size and resistance of the ball, depending on what parts of the body you are working. Some balls allow for more detailed muscle and tissue work and other balls release tension to create relaxation and space from head to toe.  

SPACE

If we need space on a psychological level, all our body parts also need it to function optimally. Body Rolling's basic principle is that pain, restrictions, and body problems in general come from a lack of space. Body parts are compressed (joints, vertebrae, organs) so they can't move or function like they are supposed to, therefore you feel pain. The body gets locked into patterns due to habits, repetitious movements, traumas, etc. So we work to restore space in the body.  

ANATOMY

Body Rolling works following the body's anatomical logic and order. We start stimulating the bone, which initiates the release of the muscle since the bone and muscle are attached via tendons. We'll then roll along the muscle, from origin to insertion, exerting traction with our own body weight so that the muscle understands in which direction it must release.  

DETAIL

Body Rolling targets all body parts through specific routines : from "foot fitness" that re-educates the muscular chains of the leg connecting and realigning foot, ankle, knee and hip to prevent injuries in those joints to the intelligent sequencing of movements over the ball that prevent headaches, back, neck and shoulder tensions; repetitive stress syndromes, such as carpal tunnel, that result from hours of sitting at a desk or computer. You will work through the layers of tension built up over years, moving progressively through deeper layers.  

ADAPTABILITY

Ideal for athletes, yogis, dancers, musicians, singers, Body Rolling is also strongly recommended for people with a more sedentary lifestyle to keep their body pain-free and flexible throughout life, instead of experiencing the stiffness and restrictions associated with aging. No matter how old you are or what physical issues you might have, all Body Rolling routines can be modified, so that you can safely do them and still see dramatic improvements.  

FITNESS

Before or after any type of physical activity, Body Rolling can warm-up the muscles or be a massage. It helps improving performance and therefore optimizes your workouts. Moreover, it both prevents and assists in the swift healing of injuries. As to your silhouette, not only does Body Rolling stimulate all the nerve roots along the spine which encourages lymphatic drainage and increases the metabolism but elongating and freeing muscles improves your posture, so you have a longer, leaner look.

ABOUT

While I hold paperwork stating that I am a citizen of Paris (France), you are more likely to find me at an airport near you, headed to my next exotic locale, trotting, hopping and trekking across the globe, seeking out my next project and opportunities to share my passion. I love teaching, exercising, performing, choreographing and directing. When not doing any of those things, I'm fond of smiling, taking pictures, and trying out new tasty vegan food.
