A massage and body awareness system

Himalaya Yoga Valley is delighted once again to host well known Body Structural Awareness expert Adam Divine, who holds his unique Massage Immersion Course at our Centre. Adam is joined by Viriam Kaur, well known yoga teacher, energy healer and Himalaya Yoga Valley’s Philosophy Lecturer.

About the course

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 10 Day 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.
