Classes

What is Yomassage?

Yomassage was created with the intention of making therapeutic touch more accessible. We created a luxurious and relaxing experience that allows clients to receive massage in a small group setting. Yomassage combines mindfulness, supported positions, and therapeutic touch all in one class. Yomassage is more accessible than s normal 1-1 massage because of the cost, but it is also more appealing to some people because it is offered in a safe, fully clothed, small group setting. Learn more about Yomassage at www.yomassage.co/pages/about.

Where can I find a Yomassage class?

We have Yomassage therapists teaching classes all across the country! Visit yomassage.co/events to find a class in your area.

How many people are in a class?

1 therapist can have up to 5 people in a class. If they have a Yomassage Supporter assisting them, they can have up to 8 in a 90-minute class and 10 in a 2-hour class.

Who can take Yomassage classes?

Yomassage classes are open to anyone! You just need to feel comfortable getting up and down from the floor. You do not need to be flexible at all to take a Yomassage class. You do not need any prior experience in fitness, massage, or yoga to take these classes.

Is this yoga?

No. Yomassage is not yoga, it is a different way to receive therapeutic touch. The Yomassage positions are inspired by restorative yoga positions.
