has a lifelong background in dance and movement. An Esalen® Massage practitioner, CranioSacral practitioner, and certified yoga instructor, she has taught and assisted Esalen® Massage trainings, yoga retreats, and Upledger Institute trainings.
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.
This weekend is designed to help couples renew their relationship while exploring touch and learning massage. The workshop will present simple massage techniques, developed by Esalen® Massage practitioners, that are valuable to anyone who wants to help a partner, friend, or family member feel better. Massage methods that help relieve pain, increase vitality, or simply soothe the nerves will be briefly demonstrated and practiced, with plenty of hands-on instruction.
