Awakening the Body with Ayurvedic Yoga Massage
Training this August with expert structural body worker Adam Divine at Himalaya Yoga Valley CorkÂ
Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a dynamic and deeply therapeutic massage. It fuses the sister sciences of Ayurveda and Yoga creating a strong deep tissue massage with assisted yoga stretches.
The massage combines deep tissue massage with sesame oil and ayurvedic herbal powders which gently exfoliate the body and on a deeper level they sink in to detoxify the body.
Then comes the yoga. Our body is warmed up, energy is moving and then through assisted yoga stretches inspired by Iyengar, we can really explore our range of movement, flexibility and breath with the stretches. Create space for ourselves.
The yoga stretches range from an assisted cobra stretch to a combination of spinal twists. We might also receive a range of assisted padangustasana (hip stretches) and a spin on badakonasana (bound angle pose). There are also many shoulder girdle stretches. All the stretches work to open up the body three dimensionally, get breath moving fully and naturally increase our stamina and awareness of the body.
â€śThrough synchronised breathwork, the receiver is led progressively deeper into assisted yoga postures that help correct postural imbalances and restore harmony to the body,â€ť says James Winstanley, founder of the Ayurvedic Yoga Massage Institute.
The massage was developed in the last twenty years by Master Kusum Modak. Â She learned yoga directly with BKS Iyengar in Pune and brought this into her knowledge and understanding of the body through ayurvedic massage.
â€śSomeone else is doing all the work for you – the lazy manâ€™s yoga, the ultimate! Â If I could get that every day I would be very happy,â€ť says Master Kusum. â€śActually as the receiver you cannot just relax, lie down; and I start working on you. It is not like that. You should be aware and only then will you feel that something is changing in your body. Then after the first one or two sessions, which is our learning process â€“ to see where you are holding the problem, the tightness, the tension. Then we know how to go forward little by little, the body opening like a flower petal by petal.”
An ayurvedic yoga massage session is a dialogue â€“ both the giver and the receiver learn to listen to the body. Listening is the most important part of any dialogue.
When we realign the body, release stress and tension, we can also unlock trapped emotions that we hold in the body. We can see ourselves for who we really are.
We detox our mind, body and spirit with this massage.The oil and herb combination balances the body elements (doshas in ayurveda), improves circulation, releases toxins and aligns the musculoskeletal system which is vital for posture and energy flow. The calamus powder which is an ayurvedic herb from the ginger root family stimulates blood flow, calms the mind and directly revitalizes prana (vital energy of the body).
Ayurveda and Yoga are healing modalities which have been evolving for 5000 years. These sister sciences work together to give you an insight into how we tick. Their principles are deeply rooted in nature’s intelligence and therefore in the integration of body, mind and spirit.
