The retreat centre is located in walking distance to some beautiful waterfalls that are accessible to you at any time during the day (outside of class time). There is also a 2.5hr zipline tour on a neighbouring mountain, however this is an additional cost of $65USD. The beach is located about 20 minutes down the road and one of our days in-between training will be our beach day.
Each one of our core modules is run over 3 consecutive days for a total of 8 hours each day (in 2 sessions). These classes place a lot of emphasis on getting in and practicing the techniques directly so that you immediately start getting hands-on experience.
Module 1 sets a solid foundation in the practice of high quality touch. We do this by combining some anatomy with positive intention and our physical practice. When exchanging massages in class you are receiving in-depth feedback from your classmates and the teacher as well as gaining a new understanding of the postures when you receive the massage. This first course will provide you with a sound 45-minute flow that focuses on the most common areas of tension, namely the shoulders, neck and back.
In module 2 we revisit and enhance our understanding of content from the first module. We then delve deeper into the concepts of quality touch and extend our massage sequence to explore more of the body. By adding in more postures to include the arms, legs, hands and feet, we will end up with a 2-hr massage sequence.
In the 3rd module we consolidate and extend our practice from the first 2 courses to produce a well-rounded and more complete massage flow. After this course you will be able to give a fluid 2.5-hr massage, providing a total mind-body experience. We also explore some useful ways to customize the massage to make sure you’re comfortable with both longer and shorter length treatments and to best suit the needs of your client. After module 3 and some home practice you will be eligible for Principal Certification.
Early Bird rate until October 26, 2019.
