The art and science of Ayurveda is more than 5,000 years old. It is the oldest continuously practiced health-care system in the world. Ayurveda concentrates on prevention and understanding one’s own makeup. The goal of Ayurveda is to teach us how to attain optimal health through an intimate relationship with ourselves and all of nature. In Ayurveda, we work with lifestyle choices, diet, herbal remedies, bodywork treatments, and cleansing. Massage continuing education classes focus on using Ayurveda in a massage practice.
Mandy Main has been practicing Ayurveda since 2010 and has been using these techniques successfully in her massage practice. She brings to the Ayurveda classes a wealth of knowledge in massage and energetic techniques from many different lineages including Usui Reiki, martial arts, Ayurveda, Yoga, and Swedish Massage. Mandy is passionate about sharing her knowledge to empower others. Her classes are always fun, informative, and down-to-earth. Feel free to reach out with any questions.
This class is an introductory course to Ayurvedic Bodywork. This course uses lecture, discussion and hands-on experiences to bring an understanding of this ancient art and science to massage therapists.
The lecture will inform participants about Ayurvedic philosophy and how that translates into individualized bodywork. Massage Therapists will be able to incorporate elements of the course into their current practice or add an Abhyanga (Ayurvedic Massage) to their list of services.
