HI! This is Michaela. Thank You for previewing my video(s)!
I hope that my descriptions help you make informed choices, however, if the dvd you purchase is not exactly what you need, I offer 100% SATISFACTION GUARANTEE. Please email me through the website on the back cover for a FREE alternate DVD.
By popular request, I’m excited to offer you my head-to-toe, most comprehensive collection of foam roller massages that I’ve developed for myself and clients over the last 20 years.
Studies continue to prove the roller is an excellent means to get and keep fit, achieve strong and supple muscles, improve endurance and range of motion and get healing massages. Deep tissue massage mimics myofascial release treatments, which break down fibrous tissue – “muscle knots” or “trigger points” – thus improving mobility and reducing pain. Muscle knots can develop as a result of stress, injury, muscle imbalance, overtraining or a general lack of movement and physical weakness. If not addressed, these points of constant tension can lead to further imbalance, muscle dysfunction and/or injuries.
As with all methods of exercise, proper form and technique are essential for rolling; however, a lot of people have difficulty maneuvering on the roller to get a good workout or a head-to-toe massage. Strong Core muscles make it easier. But the question is: How do you still get a great massage if your Core isn’t strong?
This video is the answer. Easy to attain positions on the roller enable the total newbie, the athlete, and everyone in between, to get a wonderful, FREE self-massage whenever they most need it. By the way, if you wish to train your core and get stronger overall, check out my large selection of videos at Amazon and/or my namesake website.
HI AGAIN! Here is a little extra info on why clients LOVE my Videos and Teaching Style.
IDEAL FOR HOME USE … lots of visual anchors and reminders are provided so you can safely learn on your own, though you will feel like I'm right beside you. This feature alone got my dvds “best dvd votes”: "an ideal workout dvd for beginners", "best workout dvd for women", "best ab workout dvd for women", “great exercise dvds for women over 50" and "fabulous senior workout dvd".
LIGHT HEARTED & HUMOROUS … did you know that laughing builds Core Strength and elevates the spirit? I'm your gentle teacher – the “Love-inatrix” not the “Dom-inatrix”. I consistently strive to bring you the "best workout dvd" regardless of the theme: Lower Back Strengthening and Core Exercises with Pilates dvd, Toning Arms, Butt and Thigh Workout dvd, Stretching Exercises dvd for Morning and Bedtime, Posture Exercise dvd, Improve Balance dvd, and a complete line of Foam Roller dvd for Stretching, Massaging and Strength that incorporate Yoga and Pilates moves.
COMPASSIONATE … I learned from my own, crippling back pain experience at the age 35 that the human body needs consistent “stretch and strength” practice, and the safest way to progress is step-by-step. Each move has a "stretch and strength" component and you will find plenty of “feel good” lower back pain stretches for weak backs. When your muscles are sufficiently conditioned you will breeze through and be ready for more difficult workouts. The body can change so much with even 10 minutes of exercise a day!
EDUCATIONAL … I explain the “why/how” details of each maneuver because it helps most people memorize faster. Once you remember the move and your muscles automatically engage, you will surprise yourself with your renewed strength and performance in all of your activities.
TIMELESS … because Core Strength is essential to excel in sports or even to walk safely, no matter how strong your core muscles already are, they can always get stronger. Regardless of your age and physical condition, you will find exciting ab workout segments, including side abs, in all my videos.
Good luck with
