Couples massage instruction!
Hiyala will teach some clothes on techniques that are easy to do.  These techniques come from Thai yoga therapy and shiatsu.The receiver will lay on the floor. ( For those unable to be on the floor, there will a massage table or couches option.  This option however, eliminates the
option to use your feet. !)
You will learn how to use your hands, knuckles, elbows and feet to give a very good massage without hurting your hands.
These are clothes on styles but in the privacy of your own home they could be combined with the Swedish style of massage.

    Please consider bringing a photo of you and your mom to put on our altar.
    We will also explore the heart chakra which is balanced with the color green. Since being a good mother involves recognising and nurturing the true nature of the child, I am sharing this quote:


    “Turning the subtle light of your body awareness inward in zazen-only, take the backward step and sink into the core-Self hermitage of your True Nature.
    Although your Inner Hermitage seems small and unassuming, its still interiority includes your timeless nobility and your boundless intimacy with all beings and things.
    Once you are seated in its contained limitlessness, realize that dropping desires, treasuring beginner’s heartmind, bowing to the sacredness of each moment,
    and embodying the holiness of Nothing Special is of Great Value far beyond owning, measuring, and figuring.” Copyright © 11/22/2015
    with blessings and encouragement,Roshi

We can’t offer refunds but will allow you to take a yoga class or use the cost as a credit towards a massage. bio:Moors & McCumber are a songwriting duo and multi-instrumentalists. After having met around the campfires of the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest in 2005, James Moors and Kort McCumber (based in Superior, WI and Gold Hill, CO respectfully) began experimenting with co-writing and performing together. Fast forward to 2014 and the duo is releasing their fourth studio CD. This latest batch of 12 original songs from this powerful duo was produced by Gary Louris of the Jayhawks. Reaching for new instruments throughout their show they conjure powerful melodies and harmony vocals that have drawn them in comparison to the Everly Brothers and Simon and Garfunkel. Recent festival performances include; Kerrville, Pagosa Springs Folk Fest, Florida Folk Fest, Bliss Fest and Moab Folk Fest.
