Jill has put forth one of the great works of public health in our time. (- Dr. Kelly Starrett co-founder of Mobilitywod, New York Times bestselling Author of Becoming a Supple Leopard)
Short of taking Jill Miller home with you,there is no better source for step-by-step self-care health-care than The Roll Model. Metamorphosis is not only for butterflies- you too can change your body into a different animal. The Roll Model is a book as robust as your health will be after reading it. (- Katy Bowman, M.S. author of Move Your DNA: Restore Your Health Through Natural Movement)
Mobility is the key to unlocking next level strength and performance in your body. Jill Miller is not only the master of this, she teaches it in a way that simplifies the science and gives clear instructions that anyone at any fitness level can use immediately. My body has never been happier. And my foam roller has never been more jealous. (- Adam Rosante, Celebrity Fitness & Wellness Coach, author, The 30-Second Body.)
Where movement meets method is where the rubber hits the road in any therapeutic practice and it is there that great change can take place. The Roll Model presents a concrete roadmap for pain management, body ease, and movement efficiency. Jill’s energy, endless curiosity and extensive work in the areas of anatomy and yoga therapy all “rolled” into one, make her voice unique. ‘Live better in your body’ is a promise you can bank on when working with Jill’s self-care methodology and The Roll Model may be just be the breakthrough your body has been secretly been begging for and the path toward true physical freedom. (- Brooke Siler, author of NY Times Bestseller The Pilates Body, Your Ultimate Pilates Body Challenge, The Women’s Health Big Book of Pilates)
I really love the 'live better in your body' part of the promise of this book—it should be a priority for everyone. And I think Jill Miller's approach to self-massage is excellent. One of my personal goals is always expansion—becoming more open and more flexible, both physically as well as mentally. I often think that where the body goes, the mind follows. And a flexible body—one that can really move—can go farther and longer. (- Gabrielle Reece, former pro beach volleyball player and certified trainer)
This carefully written and beautifully illustrated book lays out a comprehensive new system of 'self-care healthcare' that’s grounded in science, honed by experience, and proven by an exceptional track record of success. The Roll Model offers an invaluable resource for anyone who is ready to expand their self-care repertoire, or works to support others in sustaining optimal health. (-Carol Horton, PhD, author of Yoga PhD; co-editor of 21st Century Yoga)

Was bisher (in Deutschland) hierfür gefehlt hat, sind neben diesem Buch die geeigneten Bälle. Nun sind sie auch bei uns erhältlich. Während Bälle von Blackroll o.ä. extrem hart und völlig "unnachgiebig" sind, haben die Yoga Tune Up "Therapy Balls" genau die richtige Beschaffenheit. Sie geben etwas nach, ohne zu schwammig zu sein. Sie kleben am Körper, statt wegzurollen. Es gibt sie in unterschiedlichen Größen für alle möglichen Anwendungen. Zur Zeit (Juni 15) werden sie bei amazon.de nur überteuert von einem Versender aus den USA angeboten. Habe sie bei greensupps deutlich billiger entdeckt.
Fazit: Das Buch bietet eine fantastische Anleitung zur Selbsthilfe und die Bälle von Jill Miller sind perfekt hierzu geeignet.
PS: Es gibt eine gemeinsame DVD von Jill Miller und Kelly Starrett (Autor von "Werde ein geschmeidiger Leopard..."): Treat While You Train - ebenfalls sehr empfehlenswert!
Nachdem ich einiges von Jill Miller im Internet gesehen und ein paar ihrer DVDs ausprobiert hatte, habe ich mir dieses Buch gegönnt. Mittlerweile ist es ja auch auf Deutsch erschienen, ich hoffe es ist gut übersetzt, kann dazu leider keien Aussage machen. Die Originalausgabe jedenfalls ist ein großer Fundus erstklassiger Informationen, mit denen sich das Wohlbefinden im eigenen Körper steigern und viele Probleme durch falsche und einseitige Alltags- oder Sportbelastungen beseitigen lassen. Das Druckbild ist toll, das Papier fühlt sich hochwertig an.
Was ich etwas überflüssig finde, sind die typisch amerikanischen "Success-Stories", aber manch einer mag das vielleicht oder findet es motivierend. Von daher schon okay.
Zur Umsetzung enpfiehlt es sich, eine gute Yogamatte und zwei Yogablocks zu besitzen. Außerdem braucht man mindestens zwei Tennisbälle und einen weichen Kinderspielball. Jill Miller enpfiehlt natürlich Ihre eingene Ballserie, aber es geht für den günstigen Einstieg auch so. Die Bälle von Jill Miller sind mittlerweile auch in Deutschland erhältlich, hier enpfehle ich einen genauen Preisvergleich, da ich schon Preisunterschiede von über 100% zwischen verschiednen Shops gesehen habe!
Ich habe das Buch auch inzwischen schon einige Male verschenkt, gebe also eine klare Kaufempfehlung.

Jill Miller's brand new book, The Roll Model (432pp, Victory Belt Publishing, Inc., 2014), can only be read as an experience of heart and mind and body all rolled into one. The book is as stunningly beautiful in the way of books as it's author is in the way of people and the work she has created. The Roll Model is literally a feast for the eyes. The book is so chock full of starkly clear instructional pictures that even if you skipped the words, you could read it like an image gallery and readily access the straightforward presentation of self health care as it can be at its best: simple, cheap, effective, real.
That having been said, for heaven's sake, don't skip the words! Jill has written an eminently readable book, with serious "thud" value to boot. The text is full of warm and compelling prose, stories of personal empowerment that literally brought me to tears. Why? Because tales of the human spirit stepping into its own cannot help but expand and bless your heart. These are not merely "success stories." These are stories of what we might call "the everyday miraculous." Everyday, because we humans are ordinary folks, often meeting extraordinary challenges and suffering with great courage. Miraculous, because they testify to the power of healing given us by our own hands, wielding the most basic of tools --a few balls-- but with an intelligence well past basic. The great gifts of our bodies, once explored, are seen here to transform into the vehicles for the fulfilling lives they are designed to support, however much suffering we may have endured previous to this self-caring, self-reclaiming exploration.
For the mind, The Roll Model is a systematic presentation. Jill actually makes sense for you of her method, without overwhelming or boring you with too much intellectual material unsupported by demonstration or engagement of the rest of you. She makes her case intelligently, by enlisting the reader as a whole in the exploration she is explaining. Anatomical and physiological concepts are supported with visual and tactile experiences and story that are the hallmarks of good teaching.
And for the body? If Ms. Miller's book is for anything, it is for your body! I couldn't read more than a few pages before I had to put it down and play with my balls. I mean it. (I say this in the spirit of the book which, by the way, is not shy to have some fun with the endless puns and ironies inherent in the teaching of a woman who's got balls: serious balls.) The therapy balls are truly useful, effective tools that you can explore yourself with as deeply as you are willing to go. Step by step instruction and advice keep you on a safe, self-healing, self-care track. It feels good to read this book, because you will feel compelled to do for yourself what no one else truly can do for you: "Pick up your mat and walk!" The invitation is to connect yourself up from the inside, to move, to touch, to wake up all that is dormant, stuck, frozen, and in pain within you, and let it roll on out.
The Roll Model deserves your attention. Reading here and following along, applying the techniques, is a service to yourself. I am rarely effusive in my praise, but Jill Miller has earned it. Her excellence shines through these pages, as well as her commitment to serving her fellow human beings. I highly recommend this book.

What is all this “rolling” about? You have probably seen people rolling on large foam tubes and been told that if you do that after a workout you won’t be as sore the next day. Maybe someone told you it’s a good way to relax tight muscles. It turns out there is a lot of science to “rolling” or “self-myofascial massage”. Rolling can relieve lots of pain and its symptoms by massaging yourself (more accurately, your fascia). You can improve your breathing, your posture, your health, your fitness, your sleep, and even your emotional state. Jill explains it all in The Roll Model. Also you can do a lot better job of rolling with a pair of Roll Model Balls than a big foam tube. If you buy the book, you should also get yourself a pair of balls and try the many, many techniques that are put forth in the book (with beautiful colorful pictures and easy-to-follow instructions).
The book is filled with testimonials of real people that have had miraculous results from The Roll Model techniques that Jill and her teachers have taught over the years.
Is this book for you? Do you have a desire to live better in your body? Do want to move without pain? Then this book is for you.
Are you an active person? Do you move a lot? Are you a movement professional or teacher? Do you dance, do yoga, do Pilates, lift, run, bike, swim, crossfit? Are you a therapist: physical, occupational, massage or otherwise? Then this book will be a necessity as you learn to navigate your body and your injuries and your blind spots and your pain and your recovery as well as your clients.
Do I recommend you buy The Roll Model? Yes and no. Obviously I want everyone to benefit from Jill’s work and I know this book will help so many people live better in their bodies. However, I have to be selfish and say that I want to keep all the secrets to myself. This stuff works like voodoo when I do it and show it my clients. So please only buy this book if you don’t live in New York or can’t afford my rates. No, seriously, buy the damn book!
