We may seem like a very odd collection of people. Diane Lane is an award winning actress. Kelly Osbourne is a reality tv star. And I am a wellness and fitness expert. But all three of us have something in common. Yes, I used to live in LA, but that isn't it. The three of us all love our Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls. That isn't what you were expecting at all is it.
Self-care is important for everyone and you don't have to be a celebrity to enjoy the same benefits.
What is Yoga Tune Up®?
Yoga Tune Up® is a fitness therapy format built around the three P's – Pain, Posture and Performance. It helps eradicate pain, improve posture and enhance performance through a unique blend of yoga, Corrective Exercise, Self-Massage, and Breath Strategies.
The therapy balls are part of the self-care equation using self-massage to affect the myofascial layers. Helping you to identify and target your "body blind spots"; areas that are most overused, underused, or misused, YTU heals damaged muscle, increases strength and establishes healthy movement patterns.
The combination of releasing and strengthening muscles leads to greater success. If we just look at part of the equation without the other, our bodies will never truly change.
Results are enhanced by the natural down-regulating tendencies in the self-massage and breath work. Taking you from a stressed-out fight and flight response, to a more receptive relaxed state that will carry over into your daily life. Your sleep can even improve dramatically.
But do Diane Lane and Kelly Osbourne really use the Yoga Tune Up® therapy balls?
In a clip for Vogue Magazine, Diane Lane had a pair of therapy balls stashed in her purse. Sorry for the spoiler! (Skip to the 1:35 mark if you are impatient.)
Kelly Osbourne has been talking about how Yoga Tune Up® has improved her posture, helped her release stress, and assisted in a dramatic weight loss for years. She has been quoted in Redbook and was mentioned in a People Magazine article.

How about Katy Perry? Her dog enjoys them as much as she does.
Experience Yoga Tune Up® for Yourself!
Experiencing Yoga Tune Up® is really best. You don't always realize how tight your body is until it's released. Then the therapy balls become these little rubber drugs that you are addicted to.
Fortunately, Kate teaches several classes and workshops in Massachusetts that you can attend. Not local? No problem. You can purchase Yoga Tune Up® balls and videos here.
