Intro to Esalen Massage

November 16 & 17 @ Sierraville hot Springs!



Esalen Massage Worksop:

A weekend of Nourishment, Learning, and Receiving 

Sierra Hot Springs November 16-17, 2019

Esalen Massage for everyone. 

One of the greatest gifts we can offer ourselves is the ability to give and receive in a nourishing way!

Esalen Massage is a presence based massage modality that incorporates long flowing strokes, three dimensional awareness, and integration of the body as a whole. This modality allows the receiver to drop into deep connection with the healing quality of self and the giver to move around the table with grace and ease.

This weekend is open to anyone who sparks an interest in massage and to therapists as well. We will have specific focus on the back and neck while exploring long flowing strokes that connect the entire body. Basic anatomy will be shared for some of the larger muscle groups we are exploring, body mechanics that support the comfort of the giver, and an introductory approach to a full body Esalen massage. 

Emily Weer is a teacher in training with Esalen Institute. She has been practicing various forms of bodywork since 1997 and owns Summit Lotus in the North Lake Tahoe area. This course is an opportunity to learn the foundational groundwork or this healing modality and offered at a discount rate this time only. 

We are blessed to be holding this worksop at Sierraville Hot Springs in Sierraville, CA where you will have time to soak in the healing nature of the springs outside of classtime.
