What you’ll learn:
The Meridian Yoga Therapy Bodywork Protocol (MYTBP):
The Meridian Yoga Therapy Bodywork Protocol (MYTBP) is a combination of dynamic assisted stretching, Yoga poses, physical pressure along energy lines influenced by Chinese Acupuncture and Ayurveda, Manuel Trigger Point Release (MTPR) and myofascial release for pain, tension and postural issues. Sessions are conducted clothed (yoga attire) on a large floor mat with props. MYTBP is a modern synthesis of the ancient systems of Yoga, Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine. Sessions may integrate the techniques of Acupressure, Intuitive Thai Yoga Massage and a Full Body Protocol fused with Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine including Fire Cupping, Gua Sha, Hot Oil Bathing, Abdominal Massage and more. MYTBP techniques work in the same way that Yoga asana works: relying on the connection between the physical, emotional and spiritual. Like Yoga Asana, MYTBP uses physical methods to ease the flow of energy through the subtle channels and release muscle tension, joint pain, headaches, digestive issues, anxiety, depression, etc.. The MYTBP is a healing modality that can be applied to one’s own self or others. This system is informed by Yoga, the traditional Chinese Medicine meridian system of points and pathways, Ayurveda and traditional Thai Yoga Massage. MYTBP hands-on techniques can be used within Yoga classes as well.
Ayurvedic massage, or abyangha is the application of warm medicated oils onto the skin using lymphatic flushing strokes. The word “abyangha” means toward the heart. When we give or receive abyangha, we are assisting the lymph system to move fluids to the heart where they are excreted. The oil cleanses the skin and reaches the nervous and bone tissues. Abyangha is indicated for MS, weakness, arthritis, insomnia, indigestion, congestion, and so much more. It reduces aging and builds immunity. We’ll learn how to give this luxuriant massage as well as all about it’s indications and contraindications so you can bring this gift of healing to the community confident of your new knowledge.
