What is Yomassage™
Yomassage™ is a fusion of relaxing and supported yoga poses with hands on massage therapy. Each pose is held for around 5 minutes while a massage therapist comes around and performs manual massage on different parts of the body. Classes can range from 1-8 people and last for 60-120 minutes.
Yomassage™ not only allows your body to stretch and relax in restorative/yin poses, but to increase circulation, provide myofascial release, and trigger point therapy through massage. We created Yomassage™ as a tool for those who need a regular and affordable option for self-care through bodywork.
Yomassage™ is for anyone who values massage therapy and yoga as therapeutic and healing practice.
No prior yoga experience needed. Please wear fitted clothing so the massage therapist can give you the best massage.
