Structural Awareness – 100 Hr Massage Immersion Certified Course

2017- 2018 dates to be advised shortly

Himalaya Yoga Valley is delighted to have hosted well known Adam Divine and Viriam Kaur holding  their unique Massage Immersion Course at our Centre in early January 2017.

Structural Awareness Technique is a powerful bodywork session unique to each individual – Using fascial release, body-reading, assisted stretches and integration, you will learn a profound massage technique and give your clients the power to heal and understand their own bodies. This 100 hr immersion is a foundation course in Structural Awareness Technique – a massage and body awareness system devised by Adam Divine who is along standing  Anatomy lecturer on Himalaya Yoga Valley 200 & 500 Hr Teacher Trainings.

Conscious bodywork is a conversation between therapist and client – and potentially more importantly the bodyworker initiates a dialogue between the client and their own body – the need to start listening to our tensions, our holding patterns, our armouring – and the liberation we can feel in the physical and emotional body when we stand with awareness.

The course  has  a framework of yoga and meditative practices led by Viriam Kaur to help us understand the emotional anatomy, body armouring, brainwave states, yoga nidra, pranic energy and the sympathetic/parasympathetic nervous system. It will help us to develop a deep understanding of our own physical and emotional blocks and the potential to create the space for our own inner healing.

Through this course, you will use your own body as a case study. Looking at your own unique structure and body patterns, where you hold tension and where you can create awareness and transformation. You will learn the tools to help you return to your original blueprint – Adam Divine
