Ayurvedic Yoga Massage

Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a unique and deeply therapeutic therapy that originated in Pune, India by master Kusan Modak. It fuses the sister sciences of Ayurveda and yoga creating a strong deep tissue massage with yoga assisted stretches.

Benefits

  • Assists in detoxification of the body.

  • Releases trapped stress and tension.

  • Restores natural energy flow.

  • ​Helps yogis looking to achieve more flexibility and range in their yoga postures.

  • Calamis powder exfoliates and detoxifies the skin.

  • The body feels calm, light, and aligned.

One session can alleviate months of accumulated toxins and tension; a course of treatments has a cumulative effect. Recipients emerge feeling relaxed yet energized; a perfect antidote to the stresses of modern living that can leave us with chronic tension and depleted vitality. Many people schedule a regular treatment as a way of maintaining balance and health in a stressful world.

What to expect

Performed on a mat, the recipient wears undergarments, and sarongs are used to cover the body. Both soft and deep tissue and lymphatic drainage massage techniques are used with pure sesame oil, with the addition of calamis powder.

The body is first warmed up with deep tissue strokes and then through coordinated breathwork, the receiver is led progressively deeper into a series of yoga-assisted stretching. The yoga stretches range from an assisted cobra stretch to a combination of spinal twists and shoulder girdle stretches.

This passive yoga stretching increases joint mobility and ligament flexibility. Ancient techniques involving the application of pressure with the feet (i.e. walking on the back of the body) provides very deep relaxation to the muscles and gives a strong stimulus to the blood circulation. This calms the mind and directly revitalizes the prana.

When the body is completely relaxed and passive, the holistic therapist administering the treatment becomes the 'prop', aiding correct and deep release into the stretches. This is superb for yogis looking to improve their yoga practice.
