is a member of the Esalen Massage crew and an Esalen® Massage teacher. As part of the Esalen Movement staff, she teaches dance and yoga. Her work draws on Forrest yoga, Soul Motion, vipassana meditation, Gestalt Awareness Practice, and the Diamond Approach, among others.
This weekend provides practitioners with the opportunity to inspire their current massage practice. Experienced Esalen Massage and Bodywork practitioners Jessica and Nora will offer unique explorations in the practices of gentle extensions and dynamic mobilization, along with soft tissue release work. Elements of Thai Massage will also be brought onto the table, along with range of motion and passive release techniques, creating an atmosphere of innovation and exploration.
This workshop is ideal for practitioners who would like to learn how to apply the principles of Esalen Massage while keeping the client in the supine position throughout the session. At times, practitioners encounter clients who are unable to lie in a prone position (on the stomach), due to personal preference or illness, yet practitioners still want to be able to touch and work with the whole body.
