I will show you how to use  YTU therapy balls to help identify and target your “body blind spots,” allowing you to replenish and rejuvenate areas that are misused, abused, and overused.

FOR RUNNERS

I will guide you through myofascial self-massage and corrective exercise techniques that will enhance your stride! Experience Yoga Tune Up® to improve your running posture and foot strike. You can reset tissues that are pulled forward in your upper body and repetitively used in the legs and feet while you run. Therapy ball rolling can bring better breath awareness to your sport as well as teach you to breathe in ways that bring more oxygen flow to your musculoskeletal and cardiovascular systems.

Sitting in the saddle for hours upon hours takes a huge toll on the body.

I will guide you through sport-specific therapy ball techniques that will restore the quads, low back, shoulders, neck and the overworked tissues of your bike-body.

I will teach you easy, portable ways to roll out stiff and grumpy muscles that have been held in chairs and over computers.

Testimonials

I work out with a trainer three times a week and take Laurie’s yoga class plus her Yoga Tune Up® RX Series class once a week. It has become an integral part of my routine. Laurie has a great attitude and the classes are both fun and helpful. I find that it truly compliments the rest of my weekly routine and can feel myself getting more flexible and stronger every week thanks to the classes I take with her.

Laurie Streff is an excellent therapeutic yoga teacher. Her class is intelligent and well structured. It gives a great foundation to yoga students that helps with alignment and uses in body awareness to prevent injuries. Her use of the yoga tune up balls would be great to teach your personal trainers. The balls are superior to the foam rollers when utilized properly. Tonight’s class was one of her best!

I have been doing Yoga Tune Up® with Laurie for about 4 months now and I am delighted to feel the benefits it has brought me. I am an Optometrist, so while working, I stand tilted to one side while examining a patient. Often mid day I would feel stiffness, tightness and spasm on my hip, shoulder and neck. Since starting the Yoga Tune Up® classes with Laurie, I am now able to stretch and rejuvenate my stiff muscles easily. The small therapy balls are a great way to give myself the deep tissue massage exactly where the pain and stiffness exist.
It has been a “restorative” blessing in my life.
Laurie is Amazing! She explains the anatomy (in simple terms) and gives easy to follow directions.
I would strongly recommend Yoga Tune Up® for anyone who feels tightness or stiffness at the end of the day, before or after exercise.
