is a longtime member of the Esalen massage staff. Her work is strongly influenced by her studies in craniosacral work, movement, yoga, and dance.
During this weekend workshop, we will explore the basic principles of Esalen Massage: quality of touch and presence, long, integrative and flowing strokes, and passive movement, with the client lying in the side position.
During an Esalen Massage, we experience a remarkable web of interdependence: a listening touch, a deepening breath, a sense of connection with another. When we receive a massage we remember an easier time and "come home."
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 muscle groups of the body.
