AYURVEDIC YOGA MASSAGE
with James Winstanley
Saturday, July 21st
Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a completely unique approach to bodywork. It combines deep tissue massage with coordinated breath-work and yoga stretching. Similar to Thai massage, Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is performed on a mat allowing for a full range of stretching. In addition; the deep tissue massage dissolves physical tension, while the assisted stretches and breath exercises realign the body and stimulate the natural flow of energy.
During this workshop you will learn simple but deeply effective shoulders, neck and face massage that can be given to you partner or to students in savasana.

Yoga Nidra is a guided relaxation and meditation in savasana that allows your brain waves to enter a dream state while conscious.
