F&F 4: Ball rolling, strength training, and picking the right modality for the job with Trina Altman

In this episode, Nikki chats with yoga teacher and educator Trina Altman about the benefits of ball rolling, strength training, and taking an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and experiencing movement. 

They discuss:

  • What ball rolling, foam rolling, and self myofascial release is beneficial for (and what it’s less helpful for)
  • Trina’s journey into strength training and how it helped her get out of pain
  • How to get past the fear of injury when getting started weight lifting
  • How strength and mobility aren’t mutually exclusive
