Massage school (mystery school) is winding down

We only have 2 and a half weeks left of school! It is wild how fast these weeks are zipping by. Early on in the program it felt like each week was a month long.
The past few days we have been learning passive stretching – which means the client is being stretched by the practitioner – and it is incredible! When I was on the table, I realized some of the muscles in my body have never really been stretched. I am really hoping to find a good practitioner of this when I get home!
This week we are learning and performing reflexology – mostly foot reflexology. It is amazing how dynamic this program is. We stress how the human body is a holographic form – meaning each cell contains a blue print for the entire body. And there are many parts of the body that reflect the whole body. This is truly a holistic approach (which separates practitioners who graduate from here from other massage schools – this is a mystery school in addition to being an entry level program). We have briefly looked at how the ears, the colon, the irises, the teeth, the hands reflect the entire body – like the feet!
This week we are teaching a Kundalini Yoga class in pairs. I am paired up with a neat 20-year-old who has been on her own for 5 years and who teaches yoga back home. So that is nice. This is a good time to be working with the liver – so that’s what we are leading – the Liver Lover Kriya.
We just had two weeks straight – we did class and had fun through last weekend with herbology, crystals and working with plants in the context of massage. That was great!
I am realizing that I am learning so many techniques though that something (that I want to keep) will have to go. Therefore when I get back, I will practice most techniques but I am expecting one or two modalities to fall away naturally.
The thought of leaving is very bittersweet. This is a fantastic group I have been a part of. The teachers are awesome. And I am even starting to enjoy most aspects of Kundalini Yoga! I have truly settled into this pace and place.
It is challenging to get myself up for all the assignments which continue to come our way. I think the two weeks straight was taxing. Thankfully I can get some rest this weekend so I will have the motivation to finish strong!
I am very excited about heading home and getting a thriving bodywork practice going. It is a challenge though to keep my mind focused on the task at hand. I find myself wandering into the future about all the various things I want to offer. It is good though – I am writing the better ideas down for later use!
Thank you for reading and I wish you well!
