Current Class Offerings:


YoMassage with Jessica Niforos RYT, LMT: 

Clients can experience therapeutic touch in a community environment, fully clothed, while in restorative positions and practicing mindfulness. Offering massage in a small group setting allows Jessica to offer her services at a more accessible price point and creates a safe and welcoming environment for clients. Jessica was initially drawn to this modality simply to serve more clients who may not have the means to get regular bodywork. After researching more about YoMassage, she found that it was a great tool for practicing mindfulness while also being trauma informed.

The goal of a YoMassage treatment is deep relaxation. The combination of light touch,  restorative stretch and mindfulness helps to activate the parasympathetic nervous system or the "rest and digest" response. Each sessions starts with 5 minutes of breathing or a mindfulness exercise. A typical session consists of 5-6 restorative stretch positions each held for 8-10 minutes while each client receives light massage in each position. In our spacious movement studio, we have plenty of space to spread out and luxuriate in the relaxation we can create together in a YoMassage session. After this long year of socially and physically distancing ourselves from one another, we can start to feel connected to each other once again.


We have 2 separate classes available: Saturday, April 17th and Saturday, May 1st from 9:30 - 11 am
