Courses and Trainings --> Yogamassage


Yogamassage is a very effective combination of Massage and Yoga in which one can simply let go in the massage part and can be alert while body is stretched and aligned through yoga positions in a vigorous yet gentle way.

Yogamassage plays a very important role in Ayurveda Science. There are many different kinds of Ayurvedic massages. This particular type of massage is developed by Kusum Modak (India). She is a student of well-known Yoga master Shri B. K. S. Iyengar.

Yogamassage is a deep tissue work, which releases tension in the muscles and frees the blocks of energy in the body. Through massage strokes and stretches based on yoga it helps the physical body to align and to return to its natural health and vitality. The treatment is given on a mattress on the floor and natural oils are used to support circulation. The amount of oil used is similar to the amount of lotion used in a classical/Swedish massage.

A speciality of this Yogamassage is that it includes assisted Yoga stretches. The use of stretching is very efficient in treating specific body problems. The stretching reaches deep in the body and can help to resolve problems from the root. Since the stretching is assisted the client doesn’t have to use their own muscles to keep the position. Therefore they can relax totally into the stretch and it can go deeper. Additionally, the clients’ breathing is used as a supporting tool to relax the body in the stretching so that it can go even deeper.
