Ayurvedic massage training
Deň / Dátum / Časpiatok / 19.07.2024 - 28.07.2024 / 16:00 - 15:00
Intensive massage training for women & men
Immerse yourself in beautiful nature to learn a full body massage treatment inspired by ayurvedic massage abhyanga, and which includes a touch of extreme slowness (Yoga of Touch~Sparśa Yoga).
In Ayurveda, the oiling of the body is called abhyanga. The use of warm oil tones and nourishes all the tissues of the body. It is relaxing, energizing, rejuvenating, and brings strength, softness and radiance to the skin.
Abhyanga, oil massage or anointing of the body, is a form of ayurvedic therapy which involves massaging the entire body from head to toe with warm oil, traditionally sesame. It can be done as part of Pancha karma therapy (a detoxifying and purifying ayurvedic method) as a pre-treatment, or as its own therapy.
In Tantra, the sense closest to Consciousness is Touch (Sparśa). The skin is our largest
sensory organ, Touch is the base of our sensory world and is connected to the Heart center.

Throughout the week, there will be some basic introductions to marma points (energy points), nadis (subtle energetic channels), to the sapta dhatus (seven tissues of the body) and physical anatomy.
At the end of the week you will receive a certificate of completion for the training. This practice is very dear to Laurence’s heart and she makes it a point to provide you with all the tools and knowledge necessary to become great practitioners. In this regard, you are encouraged to start offering your practice soon after the training, and after a period of 6 months minimum, you are required to schedule a 2 hours evaluation session with Laurence (included in the training), where you will give her the massage and receive personalized feedback to integrate. Should you be interested, we recommend you to receive the massage beforehand.
Laurence trained with Seby Joseph,13 years ago in India, and has been offering that same massage ever since. Over those years, following her own personal growth and intuition, her practice has evolved and perfected, constantly learning from the diversity that hundreds of bodies provided. She feels and is grateful it also gives her the opportunity to be of service to others by providing a mean of connection to One’s Self through the art of Touch.
When fully integrated, the rhythmic and dynamic aspect of this massage becomes in itself a practice, like a dance, to benefit from.
