Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is a powerful yoga-based massage therapy which uses the breath as a catalyst to open and realign the entire body. It penetrates the deepest layers of the body, allowing to regulate the energy flow throughout the body. Ayurvedic Yoga Massage is one of the most powerful and restorative bodywork systems to emerge in recent years. This technique uses traditional Ayurvedic massage strokes which act as a bridge between physiotherapy, deep tissue massage and yoga practice.
