Structural Awareness – 100 Hr Massage Immersion Certified Course

16th-28th March 2018

Himalaya Yoga Valley is delighted once again to host well known Body Structural Awareness expert Adam Divine who is holding his unique Massage Immersion Course at our Centre in 16th-28th March 2018. Adam is joined by Viriam Kaur, well known Kundalaini teacher and chakra healing specialist.

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 an established  Anatomy lecturer on Himalaya Yoga Valley 200 & 500 Hr Yoga 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 and move 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 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
