Yomassage™ is a fusion of relaxing and supported restorative yoga positions with hands-on massage therapy. During the class, participants hold each position for approximately 8-10 minutes while a massage therapist performs manual massage techniques. Participation is limited to five students per class and each class lasts approximately 90 minutes.
Beneﬁts of Yomassage™ can include improved joint range of motion and neuromuscular balance, and reduced joint surface compression, all of which can lead to a reduced chance of injury. Yomassage™ classes are $45 for Edison Ford members and $55 for non-members. Tickets can be purchased at the membership desk, the ticket counter or online at EdisonFord.org. Advanced reservations are encouraged as space is limited.
In the meditation class, participants will learn how to relax, breathe and enjoy a personal journey through sound vibration with singing bowls and drums. Meditation has been shown to reduce stress and help people experience a deep sense of peace. Participants should bring something to lie on such as a yoga mat or towel, water and a small pillow. Cost of the meditation class is $20 for Edison Ford members and $25 for non-members.
The classes are taught by Dolores J. Gozzi, a Licensed Massage and Alternative Therapist (MA37360). Gozzi also has a Yomassage™ certiﬁcation. Registration is available online at EdisonFord.org. Admission to the site is not included.
