Yoga teacher Stef Card has always favoured high energy work outs so was keen to try out pulseroll when it came out around 3 years ago.
Pulseroll involves using a foam roller which vibrates giving a full body work out.
Stef Card now runs a pulseroll class at Hever Castle Health & Wellbeing on a Thursday at 5.45pm to 6.45pm.
The class starts off by identifying areas in the body that feel tight, working up from the feet to the shoulders to reduce stiffness, tight muscles and increase flexibility. By the end of the class those taking part feel relaxed, lighter and with less aches and pains.
Stef explains the benefits: “You can really get into areas that are hard to stretch. You don’t get the same sensation from anything else. It’s likened to a deep tissue massage. You are flushing away the lactic acid, releasing all that tension.
“It works with your connective tissue. It helps with chronic injury, stiffness and tension, mobility and flexibility. It is really good for people with stiff muscles, aches and pains as well as arthritis and circulation and also helps with cellulite.”
Stef has been a yoga teacher for about 8 years but says the benefits of an hour pulseroll class would be the equivalent to four hours of yoga.
She adds: “I like to teach a faster, intense yoga. I like fitness and weights. I love the pulseroll because it is so efficient and quick.”
The class at Hever Castle Health & Wellbeing is suitable for all*, costs £10 and must be booked by contacting Stef Card on firstname.lastname@example.org
The Wellbeing Centre opened in April 2019 at Hever Castle Health & Wellbeing. It offers a range of classes such as pilates, yoga and Paracise™ and treatments including physiotherapy, massage and beauty therapy.
