Massage & Healing

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a rare and powerful system of bodywork that combines deep tissue massage with coordinated breathwork and yoga stretching. The session lasts for 90 minutes and is performed on a mat to allow for free movement and flow. Deep tissue massage with herbal oils and plant medicines soothes and nourishes the musculature and soft tissues of the body, releasing physical tension, and preparing the receiver for assisted yoga stretching. Through synchronized breathwork, the receiver is led progressively deeper into assisted yoga stretches that correct postural imbalances and restore harmony to the body and mind. In this state of harmony, the space for deep healing is present.

Anyone wishing to explore new depths of health in body and mind will benefit greatly from this work. Rooted in the way of Yoga, this unique massage deepens the practice of asana and meditation, encourages vibrant health, and results in a profound and lasting sense of well being.
