Make Your Workout Count: Integrate Massage and Wellness

Jill Miller was already practicing massage when she realized it was her own body that really needed to be worked on.

And so Miller launched her method Yoga Tune Up and began on her quest to figure out how to understand the body “from the inside out.”

Yoga Tune Up teaches students health longevity through an understanding of one’s own body. By understanding the pain in your body, Miller says, you will enjoy working out more, while also preventing future pain.

Treat Pain Before It Hurts

The Body Part You Abuse Even More When You Stand

The hot spot: Upper back

The problem: We’re all trying to decrease the amount of time we spend in our seats. But few desks are optimally configured for standing while working with the top of the screen at or below eye level, leaving many standers hunched over. “For every inch your head inclines forward, you add 10 pounds of weight for your body to carry,” says Jill Miller, ERYT, a fitness therapy expert and creator of the Yoga Tune Up program. “Your spine becomes like a fishing rod with a giant tuna hooked at the end of the line–but that tuna is your head,” Miller says. The potential pain: Tightness and aches that start at the back of the neck and run down to the middle of the back or up into the head (turning into a tension headache). The pre-hab: Miller says that this Thoracic Rolling Pin exercise is one of the most requested moves from students in the Rx Series at Equinox gyms, a recovery and performance-boosting class she helped develop. Take two old tennis balls that have had most of the stiffness whacked out of them (or Miller’s Yoga Tune Up Therapy Balls) and place them at the top of your shoulder blades as you lie on your back. Interlace your hands behind your head and gently pull your chin toward your chest. Raise your pelvis off the floor so that your upper back is resting into the balls. Inch the balls slowly up and down the spine (if they don’t move easily, gently lean from side-to-side as you roll). Do this for two minutes, breathing into the balls as you roll. To loosen up your fascia, you need 90 seconds of constant pressure, Miller says. *Those with serious pain or injuries should consult an actual PT who is trained and credentialed.

Roll Away Tense, Tight Connective Tissue Pain

LOS ANGELES (KABC) – Health experts say both active and inactive people can suffer from tense, tight connective tissue that wreaks havoc on muscles and joints. So can you roll that pain away?

“You work out, you push it, you rip it, you shred it, but what about putting yourself back together?” said fitness therapy expert Jill Miller.

Yoga and Pilates offer flexibility and relaxation, but Miller says we need to do more. Her suggestion? Use two small pliable balls to press, self-massage and roll pain away.

“Putting your tissues back together again so that you can actually perform better,” said Miller.

Serious training can cause damage, but so does desk work, where you’re sitting in a prolonged position eight to 10 hours a day.

Slim Down By Standing Still

 Stand Straighter

Strengthening the muscles and fascia along the sides of the body gives 360-support for the spine, helping us to look longer and leaner, says Jill Miller, a yoga and fitness-therapy expert and creator of the Yoga Tune Up program. Bonus: This move also tightens the obliques and the glutes. 

Full Body Boomerang: Get into position by standing straight and tall, with your core tight and glutes firm. Cross your right foot over your left foot without twisting your pelvis. Pin your right hand and arm to your right side, then sweep the left arm out to the side and overhead while you lean to the right. Now, maintain tension in your body while breathing deeply into the left side of your torso for at least 10 breaths. Then switch sides.

Victoria Beckham is known around the globe as a former Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer.  Now the mother of four, and wife of David Beckham, is adding another moniker to her title, and it’s not what you would expect.

Beckham’s penchant for carrying her oversize handbag on her bent elbow has led doctors to coin the term “poshitis,” their word for the patients they see with damaged elbows as a result of bending like [Victoria] Beckham.

Jill Miller Celebzter / Jill Miller Fitness Expert Devises ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Injury Prevention Guide April 30, 2013

Fitness Expert Devises ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Injury Prevention Guide

Every season, stars succumb to injuries on “Dancing with the Stars.” The latest victim is Mark Ballas, who revealed on Sunday that he suffered a lower back injury last week.

“While trying a lift, I compressed two discs in my lower back and could hardly move for two days,” Ballas said.

Now, fitness and pain expert Jill Miller (aka The Body Whisperer), has devised an injury prevention regimen for the celebrities participating in “Dancing with the Stars” … and those viewers inspired to follow in their footsteps. Dancing – whether it’s televised or not! – uses a very specific group of fascia (connective tissue) that can freeze up and cause injury if they’re not dealt with proper stretching and strength-building exercise.

Jill is a leader in the growing Self Care fitness movement, which involves self-administered therapeutic techniques to deal with everyday pain while staying fit. (Yes, we must exercise to stay in shape. No, we neither need to accept pain nor pops pills to deal with it!) Her technique focuses on the manipulation of “fascia” – the soft scaffolding of connective tissue that surrounds muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels and nerves that, in effect, holds us together. “Fascia maintenance: promises to be one the hot health and fitness story for 2013.

She is the creator of Yoga Tune Up®, which boast 200 instructors worldwide, and she is an elite instructor at fitness chain Equinox for whom she has created a curriculum for “Self Care” pain management certification.

She has been featured in Self, Prevention, Redbook, Yoga Journal, Women’s Running, Fit Yoga and on The Today Show; the Los Angeles Times calls her “kinetically arresting.

Jill Miller Monsters & Critics / Jill Miller The Tao of Posture: One Woman’s Fight to Save You From Yourself April 30, 2013

The Tao of Posture: One Woman’s Fight to Save You From Yourself

The TODAY Show featured one of the most celebrated fitness experts in the United States, Jill Miller, whose exercise philosophy is rooted in her own trial and error to wellness.

Miller’s path to enlightenment came through many obstacles, including overcoming bulimia, to become one of the most respected and called upon experts in anti-aging posture practice, pain management and her signature Yoga Tune Up® courses taught at Equinox fitness clubs across the country.

Miller educated the masses on the Today Show (April 29, 2013) on the curse of the modern age: The “C slump,” where gravity sucks you down and compromises your core muscles and your spine, causing everything from pain to incontinence as it ages your body before its time.

It doesn’t have to be that way. Miller’s approach is a high energy saturation of information presented in interesting and easy to follow snippets of physiology and anatomy that empower anyone in her audience to instantly improve their overall wellness.

Ban the Slump!

Our bodies like to take the easy way out. Gravity is irresistible at times, and it takes awareness and strength to maintain an organized upright posture, especially if your job involves sitting at a desk all day or other repetitive tasks.

Fitness guru Jill Miller reveals how to get great posture

Posture can make or break a woman. While perfect posture signals poise and class, bad posture can actually affect your health.

Fitness guru Jill Miller was featured on the Today show Monday morning for a segment on posture and shared the do’s and don’ts.

Jill is teaching people about their Body Blind Spots — these are areas of the body that are overused, underused, misused or abused and catalysts for injury. She recently explained the notion of Body Blind Spots otherwise known as proprioception on WebMD.

Watch Jill on Today, and below she shares her tips for perfect posture.

1. Aside from back pain, what are some of the lesser known real dangers of poor posture?

They are numerous and serious. For starters, what people tend to not realize is that poor posture creates multiple distortions throughout the ribcage. This may not sound like much, but these bony changes are disrupting vital systems of the body such as breathing and digestion. Your long-term slumping or leaning literally reforms the bones of the ribcage and spine, thus creating your own scoliosis. The imbalanced rib cage and spinal vertebrae then shift the line of pull on the most central muscle of the human body, the respiratory diaphragm.The diaphragm is your primary breathing muscle and when it becomes loaded with its own trigger points, stiffness, or weakness, it can create a host of physiological dysfunctions. The diaphragm is directly linked to the stress response and the emotional centers in the brain. Hence, improper breathing accelerates sympathetic overwhelm in the nervous system.

Bring a Little Om into Your Clients’ Lives

By Carrie Myers

Do your clients and participants struggle to maintain focus during their workouts? Long the domain of traditional mind-body workouts like yoga and Pilates, mindfulness has made its way into mainstream fitness activities as well. In fact, increasing mindfulness in just about any type of workout not only helps increase its effectiveness, but could potentially lower one’s risk of injury as well. If learning how to help your clients make better mind-body connections, whether through yoga or other modalities, is one of your goals as a fitness professional, the ACE Mind Body Specialty Certification may be a perfect fit for you.

It is important to note that, even if you’re not interested in specifically teaching yoga or Pilates, you can still benefit from this specialty certification. As celebrity nutritionist, fitness trainer and author of Yes You Can: The Achievable Diet, Diana Le Dean says, connecting your mind to your body is necessary for full function.

“Mindful clients will become more active in their daily lives,” she explains. “Too many people walk around with great-looking bodies they don’t know how to use. A sculpted body that isn’t connected to the mind is like a gilded frame with no painting. When you think about how to develop a muscle group you also learn how to use it, and you’re anxious to try it out. Everyday living becomes easier and more efficient if we teach our clients and students how to connect the mind to the body.”

High Heel Hell: Experts talk prevention and cure for the deformed foot

For centuries, the Stiletto was the favored weapon of assassins wanting to dispatch enemies quickly with a mere thrust to the heart.

Today, women are inflicting almost equally painful damage to their feet, calves and back with “mile-high” stiletto heels.

Just ask actress Sarah Jessica Parker, who became the poster girl for Manolo Blahniks during her successful 6-year run on “Sex and the City.”

It was previously reported that after years of wearing very high heels every day, her feet are permanently damaged. She regrets the harm done to her feet, but admits she saw it coming.

Pain management physician Akash Bajaj, M.D., knows a thing or two about the damage done by stilettos. He treats women every day who struggle with the pain caused by Christian Louboutins and similar weapons of fashion. And over the last few years, he’s seen the problem grow worse in proportion to the ever elevating heels of women’s fashionable shoes.
