Unity School of Yoga and Bodywork
The main emphasis of this Diploma is to highlight the well-being of the practitioner, in addition to learning the most powerful medium of touch. Massage has been used around the world for thousands of years to comfort, soothe, invigorate, detoxify, relax, repair, and rejuvenate. The magic of touch is a sense we all naturally have, and we can explore ways of making it more supportive for ourselves, and all fellow beings. It is the most beautiful form of communication, which directly allows us access to all levels of a person's being. The body is not a machine - it is an organic unity encompassing also the mind, emotions and spirit. Through Holistic‚ Massage, we treat the person as a whole being. The body is the gateway to deeper levels. Ultimately, we are not just the body. It is the most precious gift which, if we love and care for it, can lead us to a wider identification into full consciousness. We are the resident in the body, we are the Inner Buddha residing in the most miraculous physical form.
During the course students gain a thorough understanding and practice of oil techniques in addition to workshops in: Acupressure, Thai Foot Massage, Energy Work & Relaxation, No-hands/Intuitive Massage, Crystal Healing and Ritual Practice. Daily Yoga and seated/movement Meditations are integrated into the course to accentuate the importance of the Practitioner's personal development.
As therapists, our own health and happiness is paramount - we can only offer support to others if we ourselves are grounded and centred. Co-Listening & Oekos (group/partner expression/listening) are also included each day - to sharpen our own awareness, understanding and listening skills but predominantly to allow space and time for each person's journey.
This experience is not simply focussed on a massage certificate, but aims to be explorative, awakening, and above all fun!
