In any case, the Yogassage therapist will typically combine the practice of Yoga, breathwork, and massage techniques to treat the client.

In Yogassage, the client is positioned in relatively simple Asanas (Yoga poses), in fact a kind of assisted Yoga poses, while the therapist helps to go deeper by stretching, mobilizing, and massaging the muscles and articulations (joints) of the receiver.

The receiver’s participation, the types of Yoga poses, and intensity of movement depend significantly on the receiver’s abilities and comfort level, and sessions are tailored individually.

Health benefits include easing muscle soreness, alleviation of muscle and joint pains, support of correct postural alignment, promotion of injury recovery, increased blood circulation, stimulation of body awareness, and promotion of overall well-being and relaxation.
