Hathavidya is an inclusive yogic science comprised of principles that purify, empower and uplift the spirit toward creating clarity and elevating the human experience.

What does all that mean?

Hathavidya makes traditional yoga accessible and applicable in the modern world.

By utilizing the in-depth development of various lineages within hatha and siddha, the focus is on knowledge and how the tools work for you.

Although there is a growing number of trainings in yoga communities, Hathavidya offers programs to communicate profound lessons, a larger knowledge base and a dedicated learning environment for you.

Certification is easy to come by; true knowledge shapes your life.

Sarah Butcher ~ Hydrotherm Massage Certification Course
Apr 3 – Apr 6 all-day

This course offers a fantastic opportunity for massage therapists to become certified in Hyrdrotherm Massage. This unique style of massage is designed to reduce stress and “wear and tear” on the therapists body while providing the highest quality massage experience to the client.

Hydrotherm originated in the U.K. It is the brainchild of John Holman, a massage therapist who envisioned Hydrotherm to reduce the common wrist and back injuries that many massage therapists deal with throughout their career.

This system works with two warm water cushions that support the client in perfect spinal alignment, allowing them to lay on their back throughout the massage. The therapist works on the back of the body from underneath, using the clients own body weight for pressure. This promotes superior relaxation for the client and a safer way of working for the therapist!

Hydrotherm is a postgrad course for certified massage therapists. In this 2 day you will learn to set up and work with the Hydrotherm system. Upon successful completion of the course you will receive certification to practice Hydrotherm massage.

Please see the official Hydrotherm website http://johnholmantherapysolutions.co.uk/hydrotherm/

to find about more about this incredibly innovative and effective style of massage.

What’s included:

-Two days of hands on Hydrotherm training.

-A manual and an official certification upon completion of the course.

– All levels therapist friendly Yoga session – each day.

-Three nights at Villa Sumaya with all meals included.
