ayurvedaayurvedic yoga massage

This deep and soothing massage uses a variety of techniques to warm up the muscular system, to improve the blood and lymph circulation, to align the musculoskeletal system, and increase vital energy (prana). In this mat-based massage, hands and feet are used as tools with the use of feet allowing for deeper and more thorough pressure. A combination of passive yoga stretches are included to help the mobility of the joints and to release tension in the muscles. Pure organic vegetable oil is used for the massage together with calamus powder, an Ayurvedic medicinal ingredient, helping to balance the body elements (doshas), improve circulation and release toxins. At the end of the session the receiver feels deeply relaxed and rejuvenated.

history of ayurvedic yoga massage

In Sanskrit, Ayur means Life and Veda means Science - the Science of Life is the ancient natural healing system of India which aims to restore the harmonious balance of body, mind and environment. Massage has always integral to Ayurveda, and Master Kusum Modak from Pune India, who studied directly under the famous yoga teacher BKS Iyengar, incorporated assisted yoga stretches into a massage sequence, combining the power of these two traditional Indian approaches to health and well-being.
