Massage training with BodyGravityWork | Argentina 2023

March 17 - March 21

Program

Program

After many requests, we organized the first edition in August; a 4-day massage training with Andre Baptista. And because of great success, we will continue organizing these trainings!

‘Working effectively but in a very relaxed way’. Learn to give a full-body massage.

Your body + gravity = a perfect massage. Learn how to use your whole body and gravity to deliver a massage in a relaxed way. Using your hands, feet, arms, legs and your bodyweight to apply pressure onto another body in a therapeutic way. By having the intention of being relaxed while working, it will be much easier to give an hour massage without getting tired yourself.

Andre will teach you techniques from different styles, like Thai Massage, Rehabilitation and Therapeutic massage. The massage focusses on different directions of force, depending on the body part we are addressing and the body part we are using. The work can be done on the floor and therefore be practiced anywhere, no heavy table needed!

The massage training is suitable for anyone that works with the body in any way. You don’t need any previous experience or knowledge to participate. By the end of the training, you will have the knowledge and tools to give a full-body massage in a relaxed way and release tension in a therapeutic way for the receiver.

Four days with 21 hours of massage, that means 10 hours practicing but also 10 hours of receiving massage! We start the day with an hour of prehab, to make sure our bodies are ready for a day of giving and receiving massage. Prehab consists of functional exercises to balance the body, reducing pain, and strengthening your posture. The prehab sessions will be adjusted according to the needs of your body during this retreat.

In the mornings and afternoons, there will be massage training and after lunch there is a break to eat, rest, and enjoy the pool. There will be students from the Partner Acrobatics Teacher Training joining the training and therefore there will be time to have an acro jam, where people will want to show off their new skills and are also interested in taking beginners under their wings. A great place to try acro for the first time, or train like a serious acrobat.

The evenings, after dinner, are free for you to practice what you learned that day, do some acro or chill on the terrace and watch some stars while you’re enjoying a glass of wine.
