A feast to the senses, Therapeutic Yogassage is the creation of Kathryn Beet. It is an evolving masterpiece in which the unique gifts of each assistant inform the shared and growing wisdom of the entire Therapeutic team. The warm studio is lit by beeswax candles as soothing music punctuates an array of healing, aromatic oils. Students are encouraged to breathe deeply and let go as the team works and plays together to meet the unique needs of each individual in the room.
Upon arrival, each student is assigned a primary personal assistant to guide and support them through a flow of gentle, restorative poses, while draped in cotton blankets and soft eye pillows, resting over bolsters in various asana’s. Whether alone in a pose, exploring the varying notes of a particular essential oil, or in relationship to an assistant applying a variety of hands-on technique, (including massage, reflexology, myofacial release and Thai Yoga massage), the emphasis is on moving through the pose, deeply into the breath.
The Therapeutic team is made up of a strong and always growing group of teachers who share a commitment to working cooperatively towards our growth as individuals and as a team. As our students walk away from these sessions calm, focused and relaxed, so do we, invigorated and inspired. We heal ourselves through our shared work of healing others.
Sublime. It combines so many different voluptuous experiences in one yoga session that one is transported; it’s not a coincidence that Kathryn warns people to be careful driving afterwards. It’s genius, and about the best 90 or so minutes you can spend doing anything. The amalgam of restorative yoga, thai massage, aromatherapy and soothing music can cure just about anything, I think. – Christine Deacon.
As someone who has difficulty relaxing, I’m not sure how much I initially expected to get out of the Therapeutic Yoga experience. Ultimately, I found it incredibly rewarding. Kathryn and her team of assistants created a warm and caring space that really helped ‘take the edge off’. Yoga is a powerful tool for working on the mind-body connection. Therapeutic Yoga is a great way for those of us who need a little help or encouragement to do that work. Combining aromatherapy, massage, and fairly mild poses, Therapeutic Yoga is a great way to let yourself feel spoiled for an evening. – Misha Abarbanel
I took part in Therapeutic Yoga during the second trimester of my pregnancy. I had been suffering from severe headaches and lower back pain and found the class extremely helpful in alleviating both. It was a gift to spend time each week dedicated to healing and reviving my body. I came away from each session relaxed both physically and mentally. In terms of participating as a pregnant woman I found each session a wonderful chance to connect with my growing baby and changing body. – Lisa Anne Ross
I started the classes 3 months ago. Now I’m hooked! It’s the evening I most look forward to every week. The instructors are all so unique in their approach. And the wonderful essential oils that Kathryn uses are very relaxing. I’m ready to sign up for next month too!!! – Laura
I was in the first of the therapeutic classes and have been trying to get back ever since. It was the most awesome thing I could have done for my sore aching body. It was better than any massage I have ever had. Being able to be an active participant in the stretching and relaxing of your own tense, stressed muscles makes this the best way to know and help your body. The assistants were so calm, patient and gave all their energy. I need to get back. – Patsy Telpner
For me, Therapeutic Yoga is a little island of bliss in a crowded, hectic week. It’s both gentle and intense, dreamlike and clarifying – a sublime cross between a yoga class and a massage. Right now I’m using it to stretch and relax my body before upcoming surgery and recovery, but it’s also calming my mind and making me feel at ease in the world. Thank you. – Mary Dickie
I just wanted to write and tell you how grateful I am for the the therapeutic yoga class and for the teachers who so freely give of their hearts and talents. This spirit of giving creates a beautiful atmosphere of acceptance and joy in which students can completely give themselves to the transforming act of yoga. I believe our bodies reflect our life experiences and therapeutic yoga reaches deep into some of these forgotten events reviving joy, healing pain, and bringing vitality to our lives. Again, thank you so very much. – Paul Brookbanks
