Body Logic, also called Yamuna® Body Logic (YBL®) and named after the creator Yamuna Zake, is a hands-on massage therapy developed over 30 years ago, and together with her later developed modality Yamuna® Body Rolling(YBR®), based on the philosophy of Hatha Yoga.
The Yamuna® Body Rolling technique was designed to tone the body by stretching and lengthening the muscles through the use of rubber balls of various sizes.
The concept behind Body Logic and Body Rolling is as follows: where one feels pains or discomforts there’s tension, compression, and restriction. Yamuna claims that one can “reeducate” the muscles to move more effortlessly, painlessly, and logically.
According to Yamuna, the core of YBL® and YBR® is “… freeing the body, removing all the physical restrictions so that you tap into pure energy. You keep freeing it and freeing it and freeing it so that your body is really at ease. And that’s the philosophy of Body Rolling, that’s the philosophy of Yoga. It’s union of body, mind and spirit.”
The idea of Yamuna’s work is to apply gentle traction and Yoga stretches to muscles and joints to lengthen and expand them to their fullest capacity. This creates space between muscles and bones, and as such one can come to one’s maximum pain-free range of motion.
Body Logic is also a full body therapy and can address health conditions such as lower back pains, neck pain, shoulder pain, hips pain, and foot pain, among other health issues.
