AYURVEDIC YOGA MASSAGE

with James Winstanley

Saturday, July 21st

6:30-8:30 PM

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.

James Winstanley is the founder of the AYM Institute UK. James graduated with a degree in Massage Therapy from the prestigious Swedish Institute of Massage Therapy and Acupuncture in NYC in 2003 and later travelled to India where he studied with and went on to become assistant teacher to Master Kusum Modak the creator of Ayurvedic Yoga Massage. James received Kusum’s blessing to teach the AYM method and in 2010 James founded the AYM Institute with fellow AYM student Simon Griggs and taught the UK’s very first recognised AYM Diploma training. James was honoured to add his extensive medical knowledge to the AYM Diploma curriculum having studied western medical massage at degree level and worked with medical doctors, acupuncturists and chiropractors after graduation in NYC. Since then James has taught AYM around the world and continues to share the AYM Institute Diploma using the highest level of teaching and practice.

FROM THE TOP:  A BEGINNER'S SERIES

with Lauren Fecarotta

Sundays 3:00 - 4:15 PM

September 18 - October 9, 2016

This is a 4 week series to lay the foundation for a safe and strong yoga practice to support you for years to come. Because group classes often move quickly, it's easy to for misalignments to become muscular habit and more difficult than you'd think to correct them later on.  

Like a package of small group private lessons, you'll learn the correct way to hold the classical postures of yoga, the correct way to breathe and the correct way to connect the two to move fluidly and easily.  Open to brand new beginners as well as those who wish to go back to square one and set a stronger platform for the continuous development of their practice.  

Week One - Sun Salutation A, Core Integration and Breath Control

Week Two - Warrior Poses and Sun Salutation B

Week Three - Hip and Shoulder Opening Standing Poses

Week Four - Beginning Inversions and Arm Balances

$95 day of first class
