Foam Roller

If you have not yet used a foam roller then please, jet on over to Amazon and get thee one immediately!  The foam roller aids in both releasing muscle and fascia and provides an amazing massage without a hefty price tag. If you are looking for a calming way to warm up, feeling sore from previous exercise, or need a cool down, the roller is the perfect tool.
As with any product, there are a variety of foam rollers on the market. You might want to start out with the basic version. I’ve been using this one, a bit bumpier than the traditional, but super effective.
I found Lauren Roxborough’s leg sequence instruction on Goop to be an excellent guide when I started using the roller, and I continue to use her technique.
Yoga International has a couple of videos that use the foam roller: the ten-minute self massage and an hour long video, Yoga for Athletes that is well worth an hour of time if you have it.
