What is Applied Yoga Asana Massage?
Yoga and Thai Massage, go hand in hand, but they can also be separated! Instead of doing a Thai Yoga Massage, energy line treatment with applied stretches and Yoga Asanas (postures), it is possible to leave out the energy line element. An applied Yoga Asana treatment, is a specific form of Bodywork, which specifically focuses on the applied stretches and Yoga Asanas.
Applied Yoga Asana Massage is a brilliant treatment, specifically developed for Yoga Practitioners and their Teachers, who want to go deeper into their Yoga Asana practice. It uses a system, which helps you better achieve a set of 12 commonly practiced stretches and Yoga Asanas.
