Join us for two hours of pure bliss! Partner Yoga Massage is a creative synthesis of yoga and body work that produces deep relaxation in the receiver.
This workshop is for couples, friends or any two people over the age of 18 who want to learn the basics of giving and receiving a grounding massage that leaves the receiver completely rested and rejuvenated. It is two hours long to allow enough time for both of you to give and receive a very thorough yoga massage from each other while the teacher guides you each step of the way.
The skills gained from this partner yoga massage class will eventually become part of your routine for de-stressing yourself or your partner (or anyone else) when you need tangible support to decompress. This gift is truly transformational and will provide you both the longevity of a gift that keeps on giving!
