Back and Shoulders Workshop


Our workshops are a fantastic way to dip your toe into Ayurvedic Yoga Massage, to understand some simple techniques that you can use on friends and family, without having to do a full therapist training. 

Workshops also suit therapists from other disciplines who would like to add some AYM strokes and stretches to their existing practice, and yoga teachers who either want to improve their hands-on adjustments, or want to understand the body better by experiencing the quality of muscles at the same time as observing how far those muscles can stretch.

This 4 hour workshop covers massaging the back and shoulders with the hands, and carrying out some relevant stretches. This is usually the beginning of the AYM sequence, as loosening up the areas around the spine will have a great impact on people’s ease of movement; and releasing the areas around the ribcage will help make breathing easier. Exactly how much we cover will depend on the group, as the pace will be adjusted to suit the participants.

What we cover

  • Learn the techniques to massage with your hands used in Ayurvedic Yoga Massage.
  • Learn a routine to massage the back and shoulders, particularly around the spine.
  • Learn some assisted stretches you can deliver as part of a massage.
