is a full-time Esalen® Massage practitioner/instructor and a yoga instructor. In addition to being a member of the Esalen massage crew, he has been teaching weekly yoga classes in the Esalen Movement Program since 2004. He teaches massage and yoga workshops at Esalen and abroad.
This program is specifically designed to enhance the quality and experience in loving relationships through the sense of touch. Remaining aware of self while giving attention to another is a foundational practice for all sustainable relationships, and especially important in giving and receiving Esalen Massage.
This workshop is a wonderful opportunity for you to enjoy the beauty of Big Sur and the healing waters of the Esalen hot springs, while gaining a foundation in the art and practice of Esalen Massage. During the week, participants will be taught massage methods that address the whole body: Esalen’s signature long flowing strokes that support feelings of wholeness, connection, and integration; passive joint movement; and a variety of techniques to work with the major muscles groups of the body.
