We do not want to only teach you how to give a massage… we aim to help cultivate  Embodied Therapists – By understanding the neuroscience of conscious therapeutic touch and learning how to hold space – we practice with respect, intuition and grounded presence. 

Having taught massage for 15 years – we understand cellular memory – how we remember the movements, stretches, and assists in our hands. We understand the difference between conscious touch and auto-pilot – it is the power of healing and compassionate touch which transforms a massage from functional to expansive. 

On our course, you will give and receive massage – learning to listen to your body as both practitioner and receiver.  

You will learn how to give a 1.5 hour massage session – but with daily yoga and meditation as well as some restorative yoga and yoga nidra sessions, we will look at the importance of our own well-being as embodied practitioners. Our course will include a full day-immersion devoted to practicing research-informed nervous system and restorative breathwork techniques and movement practices.

What makes Therapuetic Yoga Massage technique unique?

  • Therapeutic Yoga Massage is a floor-based Massage where you will learn massage techniques using hands, feet, elbows, thumbs, forearms. You will learn to use your body weight to assist and guide your client into stretches – using your body weight can also modify the pressure during the various techniques. 
  • As both Adam and Viriam are yoga teachers – we share assisted yoga stretches to invigorate and realign the whole body 3 dimensionally – helping your client or student gain both flexibility and a deeper sense of space within their own bodies. Once the body has been warmed up through deep tissue massage, it is time to create space to breathe and deeper awareness of our holding patterns with assisted yoga stretches. 
  • Our Therapeutic Yoga Massage is deeply rooted in the traditions of ayurveda and yoga, but is fused with contemporary bodywork, body reading and emotional anatomy.
  • You will learn to use  Ayurvedic Herbs to detox and create clarity and rejuvenation –  and Marma Points (acupressure) to reinvigorate and create an inner alignment. Some Marma Points can install deep relaxation.
  • Adam will share Applied functional Anatomy, where you will learn about the muscles-joints-bones-fascia in relation to massage and yoga. He will also share insights into injury prevention and after-care, as well as yoga as medicine. We like to share yogic homework that can reinforce the healing power of the massage – simple techniques that your clients or students can bring into their daily practice. 
  • Adam will introduce Body Reading and Postural Assessment to help generate  structural awareness and help you tailor make massage sessions for your clients – or sequences for your students.

Sankalpa is a conscious intention – but it is also translated as our heart’s desire or heart’s intention. I feel this is an important way of working with Sankalpa as it takes the intention from purely being a mental construct, conceptual, a wish or a hope and grounds it in the felt sense of the…

Fascia interconnects the heart and the beat; the skin and muscles of our…
