Float

The YFR is the ultimate vinyasa trainer.

Question: So, what is a vinyasa trainer?

Answer: A tool to refine and empower your vinyasa practice.

You’ll learn how to jump back, step through, float forward and navigate gravity with more spaciousness, control, and engagement from your deep core line. The YFR supplies infinite opportunities for exploration, support and modifications that take yogis of all levels deeper into their own practice. Start with the YFR close to your feet as you begin building the strength needed to clear the roller. The closer you move the YFR to your hands, the more challenging your movements become. Repetitive use will help build core strength, flexibility and mindfulness during transitions. Focus on landing lightly when clearing the YFR.

Align

Seated postures can allow time to slow the body and draw awareness to the breath. It can be hard to focus on the inhales and exhales if you’re experiencing discomfort in a certain asana. The YFR provides cushioning and height to support the body in static, grounded postures. Try placing the YFR under the hips, hands, heels, or head as needed.

Roll

Before or after your flow, use the YFR as you might a foam roller, moving your body over the cylindrical surface to promote muscular release and relaxation. Popular areas to self-massage with the YFR are the quadriceps, upper back/shoulders and mid back.
