Yamuna® Instructor Training
Part 1 (25 hours) with Yamuna Zake


This is the starting point for studying all of the Yamuna® modalities.
This revamped training is a 10-day course combining a strong experiential approach to learning your anatomy along with the 25 years of experience gained through teaching and training practitioners in Yamuna Body Rolling.

This certification uses the AnatomyU® program to guide the participant through working each muscle to assure it is switched on. This means that you learn how to build each consecutive muscle in an area of the body and see the importance of each muscle in building the entirety of the body. Using your own body as your laboratory, your self-study brings you to a level of expertise in knowing how the body’s structure is put together. This makes you highly efficient in helping others problem solve and self-heal. Taking time to learn from your own body the wonders of the logic and order that are possible when you put each piece back together gives you the tools to improve your work in whatever modality you are already using.

The purpose of this program is to learn how to reorganize the human structure so that it works up to its true potential. The combination of AnatomyU and Yamuna® Body Rolling prepare you to be able to teach all the basic lines of YBR to both group classes and individuals. In most cases, basic YBR classes help people to greatly improve their alignment, range of motion, and structural problems. When people need more help in problem-solving the strong anatomy knowledge gained from AnatomyU allows you to focus with more detail on the muscles which need to be worked with greater attention. The combination of AnatomyU and YBR also allow teachers to be much more flexible in their class offerings. Classes can be partial YBR with special focus on muscles in the area that is being focused on during that class.

We know from experience that people who take a yamuna® training greatly improve in their own bodies and in their self-awareness.
The desire to go deeper into the amazing lessons that are possible to learn from the body grows with each day of this training.
The desire to learn more and more through the body’s messages grows exponentially and leads practitioners onto learning more and more of the work.


  • Anyone who is already trained in a specific modality and wants greater skills in assessing and problem-solving and adding self-help programs into their existing practices. This includes Pilates, Gyrotonic, Yoga, Dance, Martial arts, fitness instructors, Physical Therapists, Occupational Therapists, Chiropractors, and Osteopaths.
  • People who are looking for a career change and who have been healed through one of the yamuna® modalities and want to share this work with others.
  • Health and wellness coaches who want to add self-help modalities to help train people in self-help care.
  • Athletes who are interested in their personal best and who want to have the knowledge to help them prevent and heal their injuries.

Adding a YAMUNA® training to your present work will only enhance your skills. All of the YAMUNA® work can easily be integrated into any other work that you offer.

Anyone looking for a career and life change. It doesn’t matter your age or shape. This training will help you move better and will increase the knowledge base of your body so that you function and live better. It’s only a matter of time before this translates to helping others.
The Yamuna® Body Rolling Foundations Training blends superbly with all other modalities because it improves the body’s function, mobility, and wellness.


All of the important concepts unique to the yamuna work are presented on the first day of the training. The importance of direct bone stimulation, weight bearing and traction along with other concepts make the yamuna work stand apart from other ball work. In the yamuna work it is not about randomly rolling on a ball. It is about deeply penetrating the body using a ball that allows your body weight to penetrate into a round form that is supportive, safe and has resistance so the body receives feedback and can respond.

All of the yamuna balls are used throughout the training (silver, gold, pearl, black). The back balls are used during the AnatomyU as they offer more detail. While learning all the basic YBR routines the other balls are used. Getting comfortable knowing when to use which ball for each routine and client level is covered throughout the program.

Each day different muscle groups are covered.
First the individual muscles are taught using AnatomyU. Following this, the routines that focus on these muscles are taught. How to teach each routine, how to assist, and the practicing of each routine are part of each section of the body covered.

The training begins with the posterior body from the pelvis to the feet. All the muscles that build the posterior pelvis are taught followed by the hamstrings, the deep lateral rotators and leg muscles. Next all the routines which focus on these areas of the body are taught and practiced.

The anterior body from the pelvis to the feet includes the quadriceps, adductors, anterior leg muscles and peroneus muscles. All of the routines which focus on these muscle groups are then taught.

The back focus on the more superficial muscles of the back and then various routines which introduce important concepts for building strong flexible and aligned spines are covered.

The muscles of the anterior torso include all the abdominal muscles and the pectorals muscles and the muscles which support the anterior neck are taught and the corresponding routines for each area are taught.

The sideline of the body is an important part of the YBR teaching. It builds the body’s length equally from the sides, anterior and posterior bodies. The muscles specifically to the sideline are taught and then the routines for the side are taught.

After day one of the training there will be both practice teaching time daily and hands-on practice for each routine covered the day before. Throughout the training there is adequate practice teaching time with peer reviews to support you in developing and improving your teaching skills.
Discussing Case Studies and modifications helps you to hone in your abilities to problem solve and think about how to focus on each individual’s needs.

The last two days of the training will focus on structuring focused classes and the practice of teaching them. Some people will be ready to take their tests by the end of the training while others will opt for some time to practice.
*Note: You have 1 year from the time you complete the full 10 days to take your exams.
