When Melbournes Wallis Murphy booked a buddhist retreat at Paluma back in August, she didn’t expect to also sell-out her life-changing Massoga Massage Yoga workshops, let alone return less than two months later with three more!
“Townsville truly is a perfect piece of paradise,” Founder and Director of Massoga Massage Yoga, Wallis Murphy, says.
“I just had to come back - and after a quick trip over to Maggie, I’ve decided to run our first Retreat outside of Victoria there next year!”
Massoga Massage Yoga combines the benefits of yin yoga with the healing power of touch to deliver a deeply satisfying relaxation experience.
These long-held poses target the deep connective tissues, helping to lengthen and stretch the muscles and fascia throughout the body.
“We have people from all walks of life and levels of fitness attend. Most have never even done yoga, and they’re the ones that keep coming back to our Melbourne immersions,” Wallis says.
To gain a more intense level of relaxation and flexibility, masseuses roam the room and provide hands-on massage to participants, assisting further softening in each pose.
Therapists come from a variety of modalities, from remedial to reiki to physio and myotherapy, with each workshop delivering a different experience.
This unique combination of yoga and massage promotes a heightened state of rest, relieving stress and anxiety, enhances flexibility, creates new pathways for energy flow throughout the body, increases blood flow and leaves participants feeling deeply rested.
Massoga Massage Yoga will be held on Friday 19 October and Saturday 20 October at Live and Breathe Yoga in Denham Street. Bookings: www.massageyoga.com.au/attend
