The Art of Connection
Our massage therapy students learn the importance of mind-body connection throughout their seven month journey as practitioners in training. 16 of our massage students practiced Vinyasa Yoga as a part of their “Self-Care” series.
Vinyasa means “connection” in Sanskrit. As students moved through the various “flowing” yoga poses, they learned the importance of a balanced mind, healthful body and peaceful spirit.
So what does Yoga have to do with Massage therapy? The goal of a Massage Therapist is to encourage a healthy lifestyle through safe, nurturing touch. One of the avenues massage therapists can utilize to guide clients towards that goal is self-care. Teaching students the art of self-care decreases the likelihood of repetitive strain injuries (RSI) and thus increases longevity in the industry.
Our massage program curriculum offers a wide range of body/mind connection theory classes as well as fundamental practical training.
