Everything you need to know about Yomassage™
It is not just yoga - it is a fusion of yoga-inspired poses and massage therapy.
WHAT IS YOMASSAGE?
Yomassage™ was founded on the belief that everyone deserves access to therapeutic touch. In order to make this happen, we created a modality in which clients can receive touch in a small group setting. In addition to offering massage at an accessible rate, Yomassage classes appeal to more people because they are fully clothed and offered in a safe environment.
The “Yo” in Yomassage is based on the principles of yoga: focus on the breath (pranayama) and the yogic philosophy of looking within. The combination of touch, gentle stretch, and mindfulness provide an avenue for relaxation and healing.
"I HAVE NEVER BEEN TO YOGA OR HAD A MASSAGE."
Perfect! Not an problem. Your therapist will walk you through a series of comfortable and supported Yomassage positions that will be held for approximately 5-10 minutes. While you are relaxing in these positions, your therapist will guide you through breathwork and mindfulness exercises as they walk around and massage you in each position.
You will end the class having received a full body massage, and feeling a state of ultimate relaxation.
Yomassage classes are kept small so each client receives individual attention from their therapist.
WHAT DO I WEAR?
Please wear anything that you find comfortable and can move in to your Yomassage session. Leggings, yoga pants, and sweats are all acceptable attire. I personally do not recommend shorts. Dressing in layers is a great idea, when you are lying still in your poses, it is common to get a little chilly.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
You are not required to bring anything to your Yomassage session! All supplies and props are provided. You are welcome to bring your own yoga mat if you prefer and a bottle of water.
