Roll your way out of pain and discomfort with RistRoller, the new mini foam roller. Taking the conventional foam rollers you may have seen being used at the gym and scaling it down in size, this RistRoller is perfect for pin-pointing targeted areas in your wrists, forearms, and feet. Hence, good things comes in small packages! A heaven sent product for us hardcore yoginis at FashionEdits with our daily yoga practice, the RistRoller allows you to free the stagnation by myofascial release that dispels tension in the muscle and trigger points by applying pressure while rolling the RistRoller back and forth. This allows the user to regulate and control the process of addressing the problem areas in becoming more elastic and fluid as well as working to lengthen the muscle.
We reached out to our favorite yoga instructor, Katharine Marino of YogaKat Fitness, to use RistRoller and here is her take on the RistRoller.
KAT: It was great. My wrist felt more flexible after. As a Yoga teacher having to teach all day I found the wrist roller a great tool at the end of the day.
KAT: It’s compact, I can carry it with me and use it throughout the day. The rhythmic motion is meditative and therapeutic.
KAT: In my private one to one sessions I can cater to the personal need of the client. For example a client just diagnosed with RA(rheumatoid arthritis) in the wrist has the need for a more therapeutic restorative practice, therefore allowing me to create a wrist sequence with the wrist roller.
