The basis of Ayurveda lies partly in treating the whole body with high quality oils, and the best method for this is Abhyanga – which is whole body massage with ayurvedic oil. In this two-day workshop you will learn the basic approach of an ayurvedic body massage: a bit of theory combined with lots of practice and putting the techniques into action.
The days are meant as an introduction: you will learn what ayurvedic massage encompasses, practiced on at least one a part of the body (front or back), and although you can then immediately work with this basic technique, learning a whole body massage thoroughly requires more time than these two days!

This workshop is primarily an introduction to an optional much longer journey through all the 'ins and outs' of ayurvedic massage, in which a whole body massage, various Vata, Pitta and Kapha versions of this massage, and more effective use of Prana will be taught.
Purpose: Ayurvedic body massage can be very directly contribute to the well-being and inner and outer beauty - or the perception thereof - of your clients. This workshop will – in terms of introductory theory – explain the practice of Abhyanga in general, as well as a few simple basic techniques and working with Prana in particular. Also, several typical Ayurvedic massage oils will be introduced, including the ayurvedic Vata, Pitta and Kapha massage oils of Holisan.
